Snoop Dogg (or Snoop Lion) advocates the inhale and exhale of the sticky with his son Corde. As the photo of father and son smoking weed out of a bong proves, it's absolutely amazing to have the Dogg as a dad. While critics are rallying up against Snoop's left-field approach to parenting, the LBC OG looks at things differently. In the latest issue of The Hollywood Reporter—in which Snoop dons the cover—the Dogg states his philosophy:

"My kids can do whatever the hell they want. For me to say otherwise would be hypocritical. A lot of motherfuckers don’t have a relationship with their kids, and that’s when they get on drugs and have suicidal thoughts and drive drunk. Me and my son is mellow. I’m his father, so I wanna show him the proper way because he looks up to me. What better way to get it than from the master?"

Touché. In addition, Snoop added his thoughts on the legalization of marijuana:

"There would be less high-speed chases, less robberies, less crime [if Marijuana was legalized]. Go to Amsterdam or the Netherlands where it is legal and you see that the crime rate is nonexistent, the murder rate is probably under 10 percent, people learn to get along! There are people riding on bicycles being happy and it’s because of the environment that’s provided by the legalization of marijuana."

Fair points indeed. Snoop Dogg's upcoming reggae and dub-inspired album Reincarnated will feature productions by Major Lazer. Expect the Dogg's recent findings as a newborn Rastafari. —Jaeki Cho (@JaekiCho)
