Snoop Dogg Launches Merry Jane, A Pot-Flavored Lifestyle Media Platform

Tim Farris Photographer_MG_0699_resizeIs there no stopping the rise and rise of Snoop Dogg? TechCrunch reports on Mr. Calvin Broadus’ venture into tech, Merry Jane:

Snoop Dogg, world-renowned entertainment icon and unofficial representative of all things weed, has been investing in tech products and platforms for the past year or so, with a particular focus on the cannabis industry. But today, Snoop is entering the tech sphere in a whole new way, with the launch of his very own platform called Merry Jane.

At its core, Merry Jane is a lifestyle media site with cannabis at the center. Loaded with both video content and editorial content, the site will serve as an information hub for everyone interested in pot, whether it be the n00b or the seasoned smoker.

While announcing Merry Jane on stage at TechCrunch Disrupt, Snoop said that the site will provide users with “all they need to know” about pot, and be the encyclopedia of the cannabis world.

Pop Culture Conspiracy: Is Snoop Dogg Faking It?

Snoop Dogg is one of America’s (and possibly the World’s) favorite stoners. Or should we say Alleged Stoners

And that’s exactly what happened to Snoop: cops put him into the back of a police car and brought him to the station.

The Top CelebStoners of 2009

From CelebStoner:
The winner in a landslide for being photographed smoking a bong at a party, Olympic champion Michael Phelps became an instant pot-poster guy, though he insisted the toke was a mistake and he'd never do it again. This list is based on popularity, relevance and posts over the year. Phelps led all Top CelebStoners with 30 posts in 2009. No other Top CelebStoner had more than 10. Michael Phelps1. Michael Phelps The bong hit seen 'round the world was not the way Phelps expected 2009 to go for him. Once the photo leaked out - taken at a party in South Carolina in late 2008 - a full-scale media storm ensued. One of his sponsors Kellogg bolted and he was suspended for three months. Since then, Phelps competed in several international meets in preparation for the 2012 Olympics. 2. Cheech & Chong The dopey duo - Cheech Marin and Tommy Chong - continued their reunion Light Up America tour through the first half of the year.
