Rap icon Snoop Dogg’s 18-year-old son Corde recently lit up his Twitter page with numerous provocative pictures (some of which have since been removed) of himself – alongside his 40-year-old Long Beach-born father – smoking pot. In the above photo posted over the weekend, Corde is pictured lighting his dad’s bong.
In a series of captions, the eldest son of the rapper and his wife Shanté Broadus – who is also known as ‘Spanky Danky’ and is a self-proclaimed hippie – wrote things such as: “I been on bongs since middle of high school jus started fu**in wit vapors and Js more” and “Recording, rollin weed, and tweeting this.”
Snoop Dogg’s affection for marijuana is well-documented – the rapper claims “it makes me feel the way I need to feel” – but his fondness for the green stuff has often landed him in hot water.
In December last year, the rapper was sued by a Lebanese concert promoter for allegedly smoking weed in a Middle East club in 2009, and he was also arrested in Texas in January of this year after authorities searched his tour bus and found three prescription bottles filled with marijuana cigarettes.
Snoop has also claimed that he needs to smoke marijuana for medical reasons.
On the Chelsea Lately show in 2010, the singer stated he was granted a medical marijuana license.
“I needed it,” he said. “I was having migraine pains and my vision was getting blurry.”
“I get a little nervous in front of people,” he adds.
