If music is the main squeeze of Hip-Hop culture, then drugs are its mistress. Drug addiction is nothing new to the game, but every once in a while things get out of hand and people end up in need of an intervention. While Snoop is perhaps the most open about his devotion to marijuana, he’s also one of the few rappers whose favorite past time—which is perfectly legal in his homes state of California with a medical marijuana card—hasn’t gotten out of control.
