The 48-year-old rapper insists certain rules need to be added to proposals that would make the drug legal so that it doesn’t favor those “with money,” seemingly in reference to the fact the current legal cannabis industry is dominated by wealthier White people following decades of working-class people of color being largely hit by prosecutions over the drug.
Speaking during a recent Revolt Summit panel in Los Angeles, the New York Post’s Page Six column reports Snoop said: “I think there should be some sort of minority clause, the way that they do in sports with the NBA and the NFL, where they make certain rules where the minority has to get the first dibs.
“Like, you gotta be somebody of color or somebody from that community to get first in action and then the rest of you motherf—ers with money get action. Because it shouldn’t be based on no money.”
The “Drop It Like It’s Hot” hitmaker recently revealed he has a member of staff on his team who he pays between $40K to $50K each year just to prepare his marijuana joints for him.
