The artist formerly known as Snoop Dogg (he goes by Snoop Lion now) is raising eyebrows after saying in a recent GQ interview that he would teach his three children — all between the ages of 12 and 18 — how to smoke weed.

Snoop, a.k.a. Calvin Broadus, married his high school love, Shante Taylor, in 1997 and together they have three children: Cori, Corde, and Cordell, all between the ages of 12 and 18. Snoop has long been a big proponent of marijuana — and he’s open about showing his kids how to do it “right.”

"It's not that I would ever push weed on our kids," he tells GQ, "but if they wanted to, I would love to show them how, the right way, so that way they won't get nothing put in their s**t or overdose or trying some s**t that ain't clean."

The rapper found himself in trouble last January when he was arrested in Texas and issued a citation for misdemeanor drug possession of — you guessed it — marijuana.

Snoop defends his stance on weed, saying, “It’s from the earth… it’s actually growing from the ground straight to you, so it’s just like eating a vegetable. You know what I’m saying?”

Well, it’s not quite the same as serving up a plate of steamed broccoli, but sure!
