(AllHipHop News) Recreational usage and sale of marijuana became legal in two states in the USA this year: Washington and Colorado. Today (April 9th), Snoop Dogg announces that he and a few other artists will promote cannabis legalization by performing two concerts on Snoop Dogg’s Wellness Retreat.
Snoop Dogg, Wiz and a few special guests are set to perform at the WaMu Theater in Seattle, Washington on April 19th. On the unofficial national holiday of marijuana consumption, April 20th, Snoop and Wiz will be joined by YG and Smoke DZA at Red Rock Theater in Denver, Colorado.
Snoop also teamed up with Leafy, an online information and education resource for cannabis consumers, for the #MyLeaf social media contest. Fans just have to tag @Leafly and use #MyLeaf with a photo or video on Twitter, Instagram or Vine that showcases creative/artistic support for the cannabis movement. Two winners (one in Seattle, one in Denver) will receive VIP press passes to capture behind-the-scenes footage, $500 Visa card and more. The contests runs between today and April 14th, 2:59 EST.
Tickets start at $47.50 and can be purchased at Snoop’s official website.
