About the Author
A cultural icon with platinum-winning albums (Doggy Style went 4x platinum and The Doggfather went 2x platinum), Snoop Dogg has been a beloved figure since he debuted in 1993. Originally a rapper/songwriter/producer, he has crossed over into celebrity pop culture, appearing in cult classic shows like The L Word, Entourage, and Comedy Central Roasts. He has developed and produced his own movies and TV shows, including Oscar-winning Training Day and VH1's Martha & Snoop's Potluck Dinner Party. An active entrepreneur, Snoop Dogg launched a cannabis-focused venture capital fund, Casa Verde Capital, as well as a cannabis lifestyle brand, Merry Jane, in October 2015. Snoop wrote a cookbook and published a follow-up calendar, and Merry Jane published a series of three CBD books (Merry Jane's The CBD Solution: Wellness, Sex, and Living) with Chronicle Books.
