Last week Snoop Dogg celebrated his birthday and the public opening of his 420-friendly site MERRY JANE. The new media platform seeks to be at the crossroads of pop culture, business, politics, health, and the new generation of normalized and sophisticated cannabis culture.
Snoop was joined by MerryJane’s co-founder and media entrepreneur, Ted Chung, well as Chris Brown, Tyrese, Ty Dolla $ign, Chuck Liddell, O.T. Genasis, Slink Johnson, Julius Randle, and Zendaya.
The invitation-only event was held at Moonlight Rollerway in Los Angeles, sponsored by G Pen,Cuca Fresca, and Ciroc. Earlier in the day, Snoop posted an exclusive quote to MerryJane.com, noting the new public access to MerryJane.com was his birthday gift to everyone.
“On my birthday, I’m excited to present the opening of MerryJane.com. The awareness and acceptance of our cannabis culture is now at an all-time high – and MerryJane is delivering the sophisticated standard our community deserve,” Snoop explained. “We’re blessed with an exciting team of the biggest names in the space giving you original content series, news, and product, and dispensary info. MerryJane.com is cannabis culture for all my people around the world!”
While roller-skating and hover-boarding to music by DJ Snoopadelic himself, attendees sipped on specialty “Snoopified cocktails.”
The Merry Jane team has linked in some important folks in the entertainment, media, and technology worlds, including Seth Rogen to help in building out a robust platform that will showcase the new face of the cannabis community.
In addition to a cross- section of cultural and lifestyle features, along with the latest cannabis policy, business, and economic news, MerryJane.com also includes an easily digestible, aesthetically pleasing overview of cannabis products and a location mapping service for dispensaries.
