Snoop Dogg explains why he smokes weed but barely drinks alcohol

Snoop Dogg explains why he smokes weed but barely drinks alcohol

The rapper loves getting high but getting drunk is not for him

If there's one thing Snoop Dogg is known for, it's his affinity for getting high.

But while the American rapper is famous for his love of weed, he isn't so keen on alcohol.

You can find out why in the clip below:

While Snoop is famous for lighting up, he's actually cut down on booze.

He told the Associated Press in 2013: "I used to drink alcohol as a fashion statement.

"If you in the club, they bringing you bottles, bringing you drinks. And you’re just drinking because you’re drinking.

"I don’t do that anymore. I drink water or cranberry juice."

Since then, Snoop's explained in more detail why he's all for marijuana, but not alcohol.

The rapper appeared as a talking head on 2019 Netflix documentary Grass is Greener, which explores the history of cannabis in the US, from its association with great music to the government's war on drugs.

In the doc, Snoop explained that while he has always loved weed, he's not nearly as keen on a cheeky bevvy.

The 51-year-old said: "When a n***a get high, he lowkey chilling.

"I don't see no fighting.

"You could put a thousand motherf**kers in one room that don't like each other.

"Put some weed in the air, them n***as gonna be taking selfies and doing all kinds of cool s**t."

Alcohol on the other hand, spells trouble according to the award winning artist.

Snoop Dogg continued: "You can put four people in a room that don't like each other, and one glass of f**king alcohol.

"Somebody gonna be f**king dead."

Yikes.

What sort of office Christmas parties has Snoop Dogg been going to?

Fans seemed to agree with his assessment that weed was the superior intoxicant.

One person commented: "A drunk person would run a red light. A stoned person would stop at a stop sign waiting for it to turn green."

Another remarked: "They don’t even have to not like each other to fight with the alcohol, could be best buds."

Weed was even touted as being the solution to global problems such as war and international conflict, as one commenter wrote: "If we put the world leaders in one room, smoke the entire room with weed, we would have world peace."

One man said: "As a former bouncer he is absolutely correct. We had so many people come in cool as hell then start drinking next thing somebody fighting every night."
