The S-N-O-O-P to the D-O-Double-G wants to rock the V-O-T-E in the C-O-L-O-R-A-D-O, and it’s all for the Dro, bro.

On Halloween weekend, the Compton rap legend is hosting a multi-day music and comedy festival for gubernatorial candidate Mike Dunafon just in time for the general election.

The Dunafon campaign and Snoop Dogg have been down for quite some time now. In addition of organizing the Yes We Cannabis Festival, Snoop’s posted photos of himself and Dunafon on his Instagram and dropped a few bars on Dunafon’s campaign song “The Trap.”

The festival is taking place at the Infinity Park sports and entertainment complex in Glendale, where Dunafon serves as mayor.

Snoop’s stumping for Dunafon marks the second time in the past week that a hip-hop artist jumps into the political fight to legalize cannabis. Afroman teamed up with NORML and Weedmaps to remake his hit, “Because I Got High,” on a positive tip.

Afroman Remixes “Because I Got High” For 2014 Election

Nearly fifteen years ago, Afroman was getting high for all the wrong reasons and we loved him for telling it like it is. Now the one-hit rap wonder remixed his ode to cannabis, “Because I Got High,” for all the right reasons. In a new video brought to you by NORML and Weedmaps, Afroman extols on the virtues of marijuana legalization, from its medicinal benefits to less people in prison. The goal is to get people out to vote on November 4 with several states taking up medical marijuana initiatives and legalization on the ballot.

According to NORML:

On November 4th, two states and the District of Columbia will be voting to legalize marijuana, and Florida will be voting on a medical marijuana amendment. The timing couldn’t have been better to take, and remake the canna-cult classic. The 2014 version of “Because I Got High” not only challenges old stereotypes, it also seeks to build support and enthusiasm for the three measures proposing to create a regulated pot market for adults, age 21 and over.

Through digital engagement, this song pushes an important political message to a younger, social media savvy voting block, energizing the demographic known to be the among the biggest supporters of ending marijuana prohibition. From glaucoma to funding school construction, the song highlights many of the social, medical and economic benefits of legalization in a fun and informative way.

“NORML is thrilled to have brought Weedmaps and Afroman together to create this unique cultural collaboration merging art, entertainment, and activism into a single campaign that highlights many of the positive benefits of cannabis, and raises awareness for for the legalization initiatives coming up in the 2014 November elections,” said NORML Director of Strategic Partnerships Sabrina Fendrick.

Waka Flocka Flame breaks Seth Rogen in.

Our dreams of twisting fat L’s for Wacka Flocka Flame were quickly extinguished when the rapper ended his search for a professional blunt roller recently. After putting out a job listing on his Instagram account offering a salary of $50,000 a year, Waka hired actor Seth Rogen, whose rolling skills came with a ready made audition tape:

Can’t get jealous though. Rogen’s the truth when it comes to the art of blunt and joint rolling. According to the Huffington Post, Waka and his manager Brick Bronson informed them of their decision.

From Waka:

“Waka Flocka and 36Brickhouse will no longer be accepting applicants for the specified job listing for ‘Personal Blunt Roller,’ as Seth Rogen has been hired to fill this position. His experience both on and off camera has earned this funnyman a slot with squad, eh.#icanROLL”

From Brick Bronson, Waka’s Manager:

“Waka Flocka has since hired Seth Rogen, however, if he doesn’t adhere to his day-to-day responsibilities, I’ll fire him and hire James Franco.” #bound”

Waka later tweeted a photo of Rogen’s first day:

Thousands Gather To Say Good Bye To Marijuana Champ Joan Rivers

Today, hundreds of friends and relatives gathered to say their last goodbye to comedian Joan Rivers, who died Sept. 4 at 81. Known for her fashion-savvy and sensational personality, she was also one of Hollywood’s biggest supporters for marijuana. Many remember Rivers hitting the bong and a glass pipe in a 2012 episode of her reality TV series, “Joan & Melissa: Joan Knows Best?”

However, Rivers had long been pushing for pot on television. During her run on daytime television from 1989 to 1993, she wasn’t afraid to push the limits on “The Joan Rivers Show,” like sitting down for a conversation with Oderus Urungus and Beefcake the Mighty of the hardcore band GWAR.

Even more memorable was the time she invited California weed activist and general hellraiser Rev. Bud Green to debate an anti-drug advocate. When responding to audience member questioning his ability to minister to the people with marijuana, he demonstrated how he proselytizes to the people and lights up a doobie.

When you hear Joan say, “but you are not doing it the right way,” it’s obvious she’s telling the Rev he doesn’t know how to spark up a joint.

About a decade later, after her reality TV weed-smoking episode aired, Rivers explained how she got her kind buds to the Huffington Post: “In California you get medicinal marijuana. You go to a doctor and you say I’m blue and he says here. It’s amazing, I was in shock. And I got it and I smoked it and had a great time.”

Larry King, Conan, and Andy Consume Edibles On Air

In a further sign of the ever-evolving cannabis landscape, Larry King partook in a pot brownie on his latest appearance on CONAN.  While the show has always joked about marijuana, it has never gone so far as to actually consume it on the air.

It started with King and Conan sharing pot stories about their mutual friendship with Snoop Dogg.  If you are going to chill with Snoop, you are going to pick up a contact high.  King revealed that he enjoyed smoking marijuana back in the day but that he was afraid to smoke it today for the fear of relapsing into a nasty 3 pack a day cigarette habit that contributed to a heart attack.  After taking shots at King’s old age referring to marijuana in his time being called “jazz cigarettes,” “wacky tabacky,” and “cuckoo dust,” Conan suggested pot brownies as a safer alternative.
