Blue Carpet Treatment. Purple Kush. Barney. Belvedere. Snoop D-O-Double-G has a Ph.D. in weed lexicology. The hip-hop artist is widely known for his unique and playful approach to language, namely his now-familiar twist on modern slang. Fo rizzle. Though responsible for some of the ’90s most memorable jams, Snoop is inextricably linked to all things marijuana. Yes, he briefly ditched the drug in 2002 but soon after returned to his old flame. The love affair continues on tour with like-minded reggae royalty Damien Marley and punk-reggae band Slightly Stoopid. Smoke `em if you got ’em—but not on the premises. Take a cue from Snoop who, during his guest appearance on Showtime’s Weeds, used “stunt weed.” Right.
