Snoop Dogg Creates Controversy: Smokes in Front of Grandkids

Snoop Dogg is no stranger to controversy, especially when it comes to his affinity for cannabis. He recently found himself at the center of a heated debate after posting an Instagram video of himself smoking a joint in the presence of his granddaughters. This seemingly harmless act in a state where cannabis is legal has sparked outrage among some commentators, igniting a discussion on child-rearing and cannabis.

The Snoop Dogg Instagram Incident

Snoop Dogg shared a video on Instagram showing him smoking a joint – which appears to be unlit, by the way – in a recording studio in the presence of his granddaughters.

The comments section quickly caught fire, with many people expressing their concern about smoking cannabis in the presence of young children.

One of them vehemently stated: “No one, and I mean NO ONE, smokes near my babies.” Another questioned: “Seriously… Does he have a joint in his hand in front of his grandchildren? Come on, damn it!”

The Debate Continues

The incident has reignited the debate on whether parents and grandparents should be allowed to smoke cannabis in the presence of children. While some have condemned Snoop Dogg’s actions, others have argued that it is no different from smoking tobacco or drinking alcohol in the presence of children.

The History of Snoop Dogg’s Controversies

This is not the first time Snoop Dogg has been at the center of controversy due to his smoking habits. In the past, he has faced backlash for various pro-cannabis actions, including a viral message in which he claimed to have quit smoking, only to reveal it was a marketing ploy for a smoke-free product intended for fireplaces.

In 2019, Snoop angered many people by posting on social media a message comparing the effects of alcohol and cannabis using images of himself and former football star Paul Gascoigne. The message highlighted the physical deterioration associated with alcohol abuse while showing little difference in Snoop’s appearance over the years.

Wiz Khalifa Weighs In On Snoop Controversy

Wiz Khalifa, another prominent figure in the hip-hop community known for his love of cannabis, also spoke out on the subject. In a podcast, Wiz defended his choice to openly smoke cannabis, even in situations such as before a parent-teacher meeting.

“Of course, I show up high. They expect it,” Wiz remarked, emphasizing that he refuses to conform to societal expectations regarding parenting.

“They know what’s going on. It’s not like back in the day when you were considered a bad parent if you smelled like cannabis.”

For Wiz, authenticity is key, and he refuses to hide his true self from his children or anyone else.
