Snoop Dogg is not happy with the NFL and their rules prohibiting players from smoking weed and wants changes to be made.
Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott was spotted at a popular marijuana shop in Seattle before Thursday’s game and is getting significant flak for it. Elliott didn’t purchase or smoke any weed but he is being criticized as if he is Pablo Escobar. Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said it was a bad look and it probably is. Heck, it’s not a good look, but Snoop Dogg thinks the NFL is overreacting to marijuana in comparison to alcohol.
Snoop posted a video that was released on TMZ that sees the rapper watching a clip from ESPN’s SportsNation that was talking about the Elliott incident and said, “The NFL is stupid for trippin’ over motherf***ing weed.”
He’s probably right and it’s an opinion that is picking up some traction as states begin to legalize the drug that is becoming more socially acceptable. Sure, it’s still against the NFL rules but Snoop makes a very valid point.
Snoops says he’s never heard of a person who smoked weed of getting into any kind of trouble. Certainly not compared to the number of alcohol-related incidents that have given the NFL a black eye in recent years.
He says people who smoke weed only want to get something to eat and go to bed. If anyone would know the behavior of someone who smokes weed, it would certainly be Snoop.
