Legendary weed lover and outspoken pot proponent Snoop Dogg received a truly amazing early Christmas present this Tuesday when he rolled through Portland’s Crystal Ballroom.
Before Snoop took the stage, a group of Oregon pot growers gave him three duffel bags full of Oregon weed as a gift, according to an article published by The Oregonian.
After seeing what was in the gifted bags, Snoop’s initial response was: “Merry f*cking Christmas to me.”
Joshua Jardine Taylor, owner of Oregon Cannabis Concierge, helped arrange the gift. He told reporters about Snoop’s reaction to receiving the jolly green gift.
“He said everything smelled really good,” Taylor reported.
Snoop wasted no time extending the celebration by putting the gift to good work.
Once on stage, he smoked several blunts before bragging about the power of his “California weed.”
In some friendly pot banter, the crowd booed Snoop’s claim to superior weed.
“Y’all boo now, but wait ’till you smell this sh*t,” the rapper replied as the crowd laughed and cheered.
The Oregonian estimated that Snoop’s gift—which included not only bud, but tons of other marijuana products like edibles, topical applications, and personal lubricants—was worth somewhere between $4,500 and $5,000.
The gift also exceeded the amount any individual can legally possess under Oregon’s recreational pot laws.
To solve the problem, Snoop decided to spread some holiday cheer.
“Taylor said the rapper shared the goods with up to 30 other people, including his entourage, crew, and security detail,” the newspaper reported.
“Taylor said the gift turned out better than he had hoped.”
“The Crystal was happy, the manager was happy, the band was happy. I really couldn’t have asked for anything more from it,” Taylor said, summarizing the entire night.
Forget white Christmases—let’s take our cue from the good state of Oregon and the king of cannabis himself, Snoop Dogg, and treat ourselves to a green one. Happy holidaze!
