"We’d be a better world if everyone comes out of the closet and admits they like to smoke,” he said. “My name is Snoop Dogg, and I’m a stoner.”
Snoop Dogg is rolling his love for cannabis into a new lifestyle website intended to be an online "encyclopedia" for anything anyone would want to know about pot.
Merryjane.com went live on Monday, featuring a homepage inviting people to apply for early access to a beta version of the platform. The full launch is expected in October.
The rapper described it as an online venue for information, insights, news and business guidance about the marijuana world and it boasts celebrity allies including actor Seth Rogen and singer Miley Cyrus.
Snoop Dogg’s new weed lifestyle site will hopefully help people “come out of the closet” as marijuana fans, he said Monday.
"We will be like the encyclopedia to the cannabis world," Snoop Dogg said at the TechCrunch Disrupt conference in San Francisco.
The rapper-turned-startup-investor predicted that marijuana would be legal in California and 20 other US states in two years.
Prior to transferring it to Snoop Dogg's anonymous proxy 2 years ago, MerryJane.com was the pride of Mike Mann's Domain Markets' future trends inventory. Mike informs me that he sold the name, that he bought for under $10, for $10,000.00.
