Have you also noticed how Snoop Dogg changed his name to Snoop Lion and heard rumors that he claims to be done with rapping? It came to me as a shock, as this hip hop grandmaster is of course one of our biggest 420 heroes since many years. But what better thing to do when you have made it as far as he did in rap music, then to conquer a new territory?
Snoop has set his bets on reggae music and wants to reincarnate into a true Rastafarian. ‘I’ve been on the top ever since I’ve been in it. I got rap songs that will never die. And that ain’t with no disrespect but I’m tired of rapping. I want to do a record – a whole record – with no rapping.’ Snoop explained. He travelled to Jamaica to record a whole album and releasing a documentary to go with it. Snoop claims that “the spirit called him” to embrace reggae and Rastafarian culture. “Anytime the spit calls you, you gotta know that it’s serious, that it’s real…’
The documentary will be produced by Snoopadelic Films in cooperation with VICE Films and follows Snoops time in Jamaica where he went to record his new album together with Diplo, also known as Major Laser. In his time in Jamaica we will see him enjoying the Rastafarian culture and becoming reincarnated as Snoop Lion.
As we heard he has also been hanging at a weed farm in Jamaica, you can expect to see the Snoop we all know best; smoking big fat joints, but this time while singing reggae tunes. Well, Snoop is still our hero, so it just leaves me to say; Go for it Dogg! (or Lion) Keep on rocking and keep on toking!
Barack Obama doesn’t really deny he has smoked in his previous life, while Bill Clinton says he ‘didn’t inhale’. But a few days ago Martin Lindner, aGerman politician of the pro-business Free Democrats in parliament, showed the world he at least has some real balls and took a drag of a joint on live television!
I guess we all know I like to smoke weed. And sure, I have also experimented in with various other mind blowing goodies my days. But I came across Bryan Lewis Saunders, an artist who took this experimenting a interesting step further. This dude has been doing a project where he paints a self portrait everyday for more than 16 years already and then came with a ‘genius’ idea; painting a self portrait everyday while being on a different drug every day. One might think it is a crazy idea and another might think it’s a great idea, but I must say that the outcome I saw is really beautiful.
Do you remember Angel Raich? She is the famous activist who took the Federal Government to court in 2004 and 2005 and now in 2012 is dying from a brain tumor. Well, UCSF, a hospital in the States that researches the efficiency of Marijuana in pain-relief, has decided to kick Angel Raich out of their facility for smoking Marijuana last Monday when she was at UCSF for some tests and a doctor or some pharmacist walked in on her smoking a vaporizer. We are wondering if the hospitals management has lost their minds or where they pretty high on something themselves?
Paul McCartney has finally decided to quit smoking pot.
As everybody knows, a large amount of all the hits by The Beatles have been written under the influence of drugs and especially Beatle member Paul McCartney has been known for his passion for marijuana and his openness about his drug abuse over the years.
Paul McCartney has told that the first joint he ever smoked was in the 60’s with the legendary Bob Dylan. In the period after that followed a usage of cocaine, LSD and many other illegal substances. Although Paul McCartney has always claimed his drug use was not excessive, he has been in contact with the law for drug related affairs many times.

Quote of the Day
"Smoking's a way to let you down slowly from a ballgame. It also makes you use less of the resources around. It makes people better in the way they act towards society. Everybody's nicer. It's hard to be mean when you're stoned." - Bill Lee (Montreal Expos, Boston Red Sox) More Cannabis Quotes
