From Weed Education To Hunger Eradication…
The Dogg father of rap and recent benefactor to Jamaica’s hungry kids (‘Jah Rastafari’) Snoop Lion — previously Snoop Dogg, born with the Christian name of Calvin Broadus —noted that when his kids are old enough to understand the difference between hard-core drugs and the simple pleasure of smoking a good joint, he looks forward to having that heartfelt discussion about marijuana and the real dangers that are offered under the guise of a mind-blowing buzz.
“It’s not that I would ever push weed on our kids, but if they wanted to, I would love to show them how, the right way, so that way they won’t get nothing put in their s— or overdose or trying some s— that ain’t clean,” Snoop noted in a recent interview.
The Rastafarian convert has never been timid when it comes to speaking the truth about the untapped benefits of marijuana. And, to hear him tell it… he’d have no issue firing up with his own offspring.[nggallery id=810]
“Cancer and diseases that never had a cure, now all of a sudden you got people taking chemotherapy, and they’re also having a toke, and they live longer,” the lion roared.
The singer has been married to his high school sweetheart Shante Taylor since 1997, and the couple have three children: Cori, Corde and Cordell, all between the ages of 12 and 18.

“I didn’t want to be Snoop Dogg on a reggae track. I wanted to bury Snoop Dogg and become Snoop Lion, but I didn’t know that until I went to the temple and received the name Snoop Lion from the Nyabinghi priest,” he said last summer. “From that moment on, I started to understand why I was there and was able to create something magical in this (Reincarnated) project, something I haven’t done before in my career.”
While some of his hard core fans were shocked when he changed his name to ‘Snoop Lion’, Calvin was most disturbed by the rampant malnutrition throughout Jamaica and the devastating effect its had on the children.[youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o-u_opzMrrc]
