Hip-Hop Rumors: Snoop Defends Smoking That Sticky Icky With His Son

Snoop Dogg Lion has been getting a lot of flack lately over photos that show him and his oldest son Corde (Spank) smoking marijuana together. The photos were posted on Twitter by his son and opened Snoop up to criticism regarding his parenting style. You see, 18-year-old Spank was once a promising football player, who was destined to play college ball and possibly go to the big leagues. Not saying that he still can’t do that – but any scout that has interest in him will probably be turned off by the public photos of him puffing on an illegal substance. I’m just saying!

Well, Snoop has heard the criticism loud and clear, and in a new interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Snoop feels like it brings him closer to his son. Check out an excerpt from the cover story below:

“What better way to [learn] than from the master?”

“My kids can do whatever the hell they want. For me to say otherwise would be hypocritical. A lot of motherf–ers don’t have a relationship with their kids, and that’s when they get on drugs and have suicidal thoughts and drive drunk. Me and my son is mellow. I’m his father, so I wanna show him the proper way because he looks up to me.”

For the record, Snoop, a California resident, is a proud holder of what he calls “a platinum medical maryjane card,” though to be sure, most of his green is gifted. Still, he hopes to see the drug fully — and federally — legalized in his lifetime. What would America look like then? “There would be less high-speed chases, less robberies, less crime,” he says. “Go to Amsterdam or the Netherlands where it is legal and you see that the crime rate is nonexistent, the murder rate is probably under 10 percent, people learn to get along! There are people riding on bicycles being happy and it’s because of the environment that’s provided by the legalization of chronic.”

Do you agree with Snoop Dogg? Does it necessarily mean that he has a better relationship with his son because they smoke weed together? Do you agree with his stance on parenting?

      • water_ur_seeds

        no… if your a tourist you aint schitt… look at the american ‘gangster’ rappers that come over here to uk and get robbed, they wouldnt get robbed in compton or harlem, but you aint on your own endz you aint no1…

        you ever been there? you live there? its known for it, ive never been robbed there, but locals have warned my bredrens about, and people have tried to get them into alleyways to talk or or give them drugs… lol @ you been a super gangster… you go anywhere outta your own country or turf you aint schitt… you bring burners on holiday with you? you gonna stab someone in another country and serve years in another country, forget your tough talk… parts of amsterdam is known for their narrow alley ways that few feet wide, they push you in and rob you… and theres loads of class a drugs around, people walk up and say ‘smack?, smack? smack?, e?, e?, e?’ at night its a different place…

        but on the real amasterdam is amazing is a brilliant place… and i know no1 who has had any trouble…

      • TheGreatGazoo2012

        I go anywhere I want in any country I want. I have several times and I will continue to. It’s not about being a super gangsta. It’s about not being afraid and being down to earth. Exceptions Middle East and Africa

      • water_ur_seeds

        same here… but you dont go to the ghettos do you… i dare to go parts of brazil, a bredren got robbed at gun point for a pack of cigs… i know a dude who went missing in cambodia and never got found, they think he was captured on the boarder by insurgents or whatever they are called… it was during the tsunami…

      • jondoe

        people get kidnapped & killed in every country of the world so to say u wouldnt go some places is just stupid. Colombia was the murder capital of the world for decades but they still have beautiful tourist attractions & shit that’s as safe as beverly hills…u can get robbed in brazil or amsterdam or whatever country u claiming to be “tough” in the same manner u can get robbed in the United states

      • water_ur_seeds

        yeah the word ‘tourist attractions’… not ghettos, you dont travel or go on holiday and go to the ghetto if your not from the ghetto ‘word to treach’ i got bredrens from jamaica and brazil, and they will tell you not come to the endz and, if your a tourist your getting rinsed, my bredren who was born here in england, who went to jamaica with his uncle who lives there, said even he stuck out, but was with his uncle so was safe… he went to the depths of the favelas, you aint gettin out of their if your not from there, i dont care who you are…

      • jondoe

        Like i said its stupid, why would i wanna go to a country & go straight to the ghetto? Of course something is going to happen, You think foreigners come to the united states & go straight to compton or bedstuy? Hell naw thats looking for trouble, so why the hell would anyone do that, thats just common knowledge not to do shit like that no matter who u is or where u go

      • water_ur_seeds

        this last time im gonna speak on this subject, fckn this been going on for toooooooo long…

        you just said what i been saying! dont go to the ghetto’s, the worlds got some stunning tourist attractions, and most of them arnt in the hood! go see them… but you go to alot of these places jamaica, and they say dont out of the gated complex!

        but people talking like they will go anywhere in any country, try that in southern american or parts of africa, or any country really, people are hungry, and if they see a tourist, theres a chance your get jacked…

      • TheGreatGazoo2012

        I was in the ghetto in Panama Rio Abajo. Alone. Chilling drinking beer and water from a barrel while the dudes that I was kicking it with were selling crack. I’ve been to the ghetto in Guyana alone too. It all depends on your attitude. I ain’t thuged out but I ain’t no punk either. I go where I’m comfortable and ind where I’m invited. Each time I went I meet people in a club and I was balling. 20 bucks buys a lot out there. Anyway I couldn’t drink 2 bottles alone so I partied with everyone next day they returned the favor

      • water_ur_seeds

        like i said to richalpo…

      • TheGreatGazoo2012

        And I ain’t saying shit ain’t real in the field because it definetly is. Especially if you look like you got money. I look broke most of the time. No jewelry and I wear the cheapest clothes I can find

    • I know they have a huge heroin problem over there, but I heard they don’t treat it with methadone, because it’s too expensive & addictive, they just give the goops a bag of dope….on the government…is this true?`

      • water_ur_seeds

        havnt got a clue brother…

    • yooo thats too true!!! Ive been there!! well i was at mastrict

    • VINNY F


      • water_ur_seeds

        yeah ok super g… like i said, i dont know anyone that has, but locals warn you if youve ever been there


    ain’t like he got shit to lose….

  • TheBoxcarHobo

    I don’t smoke but I drink, and if my Dad was alive I’d drink a beer with him no doubt. In my opinion this is no different. Props to Snoop for playing an active role in his sons life, cuz there are much worse things he could be out here doing.

    • Alf Capone

      i agree to a certain extent…………but deny it all u want………weed is bad for u……..and i bet snoop had some kinda influence as far as his son smoking weed

      • weed is not bad for you.

      • Alf Capone

        u dont think that shit harms ur lungs? or r u being sarcastic?

      • you dont have to smoke it. Theres other ways to consume it. cmon now.

      • TheGreatGazoo2012

        It actually increases lung capacity. They just did a study. Look it up. It’s also not known to cause cancer. Do some research. I can’t do it all for you. Btw, I don’t smoke

      • TheBoxcarHobo

        I feel what you’re saying but the kid is 18…he’s young. What young adult HASN’T smoked weed before? It’s not worse than alcohol and it definitely isnt worse than cigarettes, he’ll be alright

  • AK

    his son was born with thc in him

    • TheGreatGazoo2012

      We all are. Our brains have thc receptors

      • philly

    Snoop has 2 son’s and his younger son is the one that has the football scholarship.

  • EQ

    people should be more outrage if it was some cigarettes

  • eddieknucks

    I don’t dig that. I smoke. I know at that age the sticky will rob you of ambition. I put off college year after year. Ended up having a kid and had to grow up. He either gonna be a dope mc or a stoner living off of daddy’s money. But hey if that’s how they get down.

    • HiJinks

      I feel you to an extent. Weed effects everybody differently. I quit because it makes me lazy but I know plenty of people who function just fine from it. Homie had it right, niggas crack brews with their fathers and grandfathers ALL THE TIME. The legal implications of why people shouldn’t smoke weed has and always will be BULLSHIT. People need to take off the blinders.

  • the real question is when did he start smoking with him

  • MiiUziWeighsATon

    Snoop a sucker for that and there is no justifcation for this bullshyt…but this America he can do what he wants…still a sucker in my eyes though

    Its all good till his son steals his stash.

  • It’s nothing to be proud of. I smoked for a couple of years and I just didn’t get the appeal of being out of it for a few hours. I’d rather him put that kind of energy in helping his son do something with his future besides mess up his lungs and lead to cancerous tendencies. You brought your son into this world. Don’t literally take him out.



  • dominicancoke

    Is no different than drinking or smoking ciggarets with your pops its just less harmful

    I haven’t done any serious research on smoking/consuming marijuana, but I will say (without getting into it) that I don’t agree with and wouldn’t promote smoking weed. On the flipside, I don’t think what Snoop’s doing is the worst thing in the world. If you think of it like having a drink with your dad, then I see the point. He obviously thinks it’s just a part of life and his reality. I mean, he’s a damn Rasta! lol

  • dayleedumped

    If snoop said ‘No spanky you cant smoke’, that would only make him do it behind snoops back. Might as well do it with your parents then out on the streets…

    • keep it 100 hundred wit ur kids and they will keep it 100 with you

  • dayleedumped

    I rather smoke wid my kid, than drink wid my kid… drinking kills people.

    When i first went to college i met about 50 people my first day from smoking weed. But my point is that weed brings people together. Most of the time your in a environment, with people passing around a blunt or a joint until its gone. But while the joint is being passed around you’re actually talking and getting to know somebody. Weed isn’t some crazy ass drug that people make it out to be. Snoop has been smoking weed his entire life, so he knows that its nothing for his son to smoke with him. They bonding, if my pops or mom wouldve have smoked with me when i was younger, we probably would have had a much better relationship. I always say that weed brings people together more on a spiritual level, if your a weed smoker you prob. no what im talking about. But if you don’t smoke you probably have the wrong opinion of the drug and you’ve been mislead about it so i can’t blame you for what you don’t know. People smoke cigs everyday with their kids. Would you rather them smoke cig than weed. SMH Media is tricking everybody and its a shame. Smoke weed all day, everyday!

  • i smoke with my dad all the time and aint nuthin wrong sharing a lil herb and your kid as long as they are grown. Remeber its marijuana not marihaveya. #1love #aplantisnotacrime

    As a parent you gotta set boundaries for your kids and instill disclipline before anything. If Snoop knows the boy smokes, tell him to hit only outside in the backyard for example. Respect the house and the parents. You can’t continue to give your child the unrealistic since of entitlement. In Spank’s mind he can do anything he wants with no reprecussions and its Snoop’s job to police him and make sure he knows that he can’t do anything. If Snoop doesn’t put restrictions in the young man’s life demwhitefolk will.
