The United Nations was established in 1945, there are 118 elements in the periodic table, Saturn is the planet which has the most moons and… Snoop Dogg is the legendary celebrity who loves to roll blunts and puff himself into another dimension.
While all of this is general knowledge, everyone has been curious to know two things in regards to the latter: how much weed does Snoop actually smoke each day and is there truly anyone on Earth who can beat the enthusiast at his own game? Well, as it turns out, the icon himself has answered both these questions in the past.
In an Ask Me Anything (AMA) session hosted on Reddit, the Doggfather admitted that he smokes a whopping 81 blunts everyday. To put things into perspective, that’s one blunt every 12 minutes and 567 blunts every week, assuming he sleeps for eight hours in a day—an easy feat given the fact that he has a professional blunt roller (PBR, yes the job title has its own acronym in the industry) who even made headlines for getting a pay rise due to inflation earlier this year.
Now onto the next unsolved mystery of the world: is there any mortal among us who can outsmoke Snoop himself? Maybe his buddy Seth Rogen who “knows how to make a joint that looks like a cross”? Surely it’s not his “partner in wine” Martha Stewart… right?
During one of his appearances on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, Snoop discussed his gospel album Bible of Love and his belief in heaven before the host queried him about the top dogs in the weed industry. “Seth Rogen was here last week and we were talking about the Mount Rushmore of pot smokers and, of course, you are on that Mount Rushmore. Who would you put on that Mount Rushmore?” Kimmel asked.
To this, Snoop replied, “I would put Bob Marley, Cheech and Chong… they [were] the first faces, they [were] the ones who showed us where the mountain was.” However, he crowned the actual king in his later remarks. Drum roll, please. Enter American country musician Willie P. Nelson.
“Willie P. Nelson is definitely on there,” the ‘Drop It Like It’s Hot’ hitmaker admitted. “And by the way, Willie Nelson is the only person who has ever outsmoked Snoop Dogg. I had to hit the ‘Time-out’ button.” When asked if he had to hit that button before, Snoop replied: “Never. Never.”
In an interview with the Daily Beast, Nelson later corroborated the story by stating, “That was over in Amsterdam! I called Snoop and I said, ‘Hey buddy, you gotta come over here. This is where it’s at!’. So he came over and we hit every bar, every smoke place in Amsterdam. We had a helluva time.”
When asked about his proficiency with weed, Nelson continued, “Oh, I don’t know. There’s probably people that can outsmoke me! I don’t do a lot of smoking anymore. I’ve switched over to a vaporizer because it’s better on my lungs.”
And in case you’re wondering if Snoop himself has any nuggets of wisdom to share about his relationship with, as Martha Stewart put it, “special cigarettes,” here’s what he previously shared with Esquire: “Weed: It makes me feel the way I need to feel.” The 2008 version of Machine Gun Kelly’s “I am weed,” if you really think about it.
Snoop Dogg has made headlines for giving his full-time blunt roller a pay rise in line with the rise in inflation seen in the US as well as many other countries. The artist, who has made a name for himself outside of music for his avid use of the drug, first created the job position in 2019 when he found he didn’t have time to roll his own joints.
Speaking on The Howard Stern Show at the time, the ‘Drop It Like It’s Hot’ rapper said: “Timing. That motherfucker’s timing is impeccable. That’s his job, his occupation. On his resume, it says, ‘What do you do?’ ‘I’m a blunt roller. P-B-R, professional blunt roller’.”
“If you’re great at something I need, I’m hiring you,” the weed enthusiast continued. He also shared further details pertaining to the salary and extra benefits that come with being his right-hand blunt man, “[It’s] somewhere between $40,000 (£31,000) and $50,000 (£39,900) a year. Free weed—all paid expenses. Everything I get, he gets. I go get some free clothes, I give him some.”
However, a lot has changed in the world since 2019—let’s not even mention it—and it’s becoming increasingly difficult for many to survive. The rapper, one of the better employers out there it seems, made sure that his most treasured employee received a pay rise.
In a response to an UberFacts tweet that highlighted this ‘PBR’ fact, Snoop Dogg explained, “Inflation. Their salary went up!”
The replies are flooded with users trying to have a crack at being hired for the same and honestly, we don’t blame them.
