Snoop Dogg has never been afraid to reinvent himself. We've seen him cement his legacy as a fixture of West Coast rap, dabble in reggae for Reincarnated, and now, his most recent release is a gospel album. The California native stopped by Jimmy Kimmel Live to promote his new album, Bible of Love, but ended up talking about the one thing about him that's remained constant over the years: his love for weed.
The conversation switched from religion to weed when Jimmy Kimmel asked, "Do you think they have pot in heaven?" He concocted his own weed version of Mount Rushmore, sharing stoners who have made weed their lifestyle. Including himself, he lists Bob Marley and Cheech and Chong, but the last choice is the only person to ever make Snoop "hit the timeout button." Who could possibly smoke enough that Snoop would be publicly praising their lungs on national television? Keep in mind that this is a man who has claimed to smoke 81 blunts a day, every day.
But unsurprisingly enough, Willie Nelson is the one person who caused Snoop to tap out. The man has a near $30 million cannabis brand, has smoked on the roof of the White House, and has celebrities like Chelsea Handler and Toby Keith realizing that they can't hang. The 84-year-old deserves a spot on weed's Mount Rushmore, for sure.
This got us thinking, who besides the greats deserve to be immortalized with an insanely large head on Mount Weedmore. There are a few candidates who we think can keep up with the Doggfather.
The Olympic swimmer was caught doing a bong rip in 2009. He's a swimmer, and a Gold medalist at that, so his lungs could probably just hold a lot more smoke than Snoop's can at 46.
The late Playboy founder had given up alcohol and was candid about his vices being weed and women. He was in favor of legalizing weed and provided a small grant of $5,000 toward the cause. Can't you picture him and Snoop in the grotto, lighting one up?
Rihanna hasn't been shy about her relationship with weed and she can even do a perfect Shmoney Dance while stoned. Honestly, if Rihanna put her mind to it, she could outsmoke Snoop if she wanted to.
I mean, have you watched Pineapple Express? He's even so dedicated to the cause that he didn't put out his freshly lit blunt while speaking to Steven Spielberg, which he thinks made Spielberg take him less serious as an actor.
With 4/20 just around the corner, there's no telling how they'll celebrate.
