Rapper made promise in interview with pro-legalisation news anchor
Snoop Dogg has promised to play a concert in Alaska – if voters in the US state choose to legalise recreational use of marijuana.
The rapper made the comments during an episode of his GGN webcast, which can be seen below, in which he speaks to US TV reporter Charlo Greene.
Greene sensationally quit her job as reporter for KTVA Channel 11 to campaign for marijuana reform, announcing the news on-air with the words, “Fuck it, I quit.” The rapper referred to the reporter as Charlo “Stick Icky” Greene.
Snoop Dogg said: “If we get y’all to vote yes on Proposition 2, Snoop Dogg is coming to Alaska to do a concert, a wellness retreat concert, and I’m bringing some of that California with me to celebrate.”
Speaking out in support of the cause, the rapper said: “Now, we got people like yourself standing up. You show that it’s multicultural. It’s not just a bunch of thug dudes that’s trying to push weed, but it’s women, and they speak with intelligence and they speak from a right frame of mind. So we support you, we back you and we with you 100 percent.”
Voters in Alaska can vote on The Alaska Marijuana Legalization, Ballot Measure 2 on November 4. If the measure is approved by voters, it would allow people age 21 and older to possess up to one ounce of marijuana and up to six plants. It would also make the manufacture, sale and possession of marijuana paraphernalia legal.
