Snoop ‘won drug jackpot’

Snoop Lion

Snoop Lion posted a photo on Instagram Monday bragging he had scored a pound of marijuana.

The rapper took to Instagram on Monday proudly displaying a clear bag filled with several handfuls of green.

Apparently Snoop, known for being vocal about his love of getting high, scored the pot after betting on Saturday’s boxing match between Floyd Mayweather and Canelo Alverez.

“Thanks to the champ money may for winning me a pound from my mexican buddy Lui !!” the rapper wrote after betting on Mayweather.

“U r the pound for pound best! N I'm gonna smoke 2 dat !!! Hahahahahahahah. @bigglala where u at ??”

The post was a big hit on the photo-sharing app.

At press time, Snoop's photo had received over 61,000 likes and several comments.

The 41-year-old lyricist has been outspoken about social issues recently, changing his moniker from Snoop Dogg and adopting a more peaceful frame of mind he attributes to adopting a Rastafarian way of life.

The star most recently became involved with an initiative which aims to get guns off the streets of America.

"I learned how to take all of my positive energy and just become a mirror with it,” he told MTV RapFix Live back in April.

“I've always had power, and sometimes I felt like I was leading the blind to a dark alley, and not on purpose.”

Your new friends and contacts might eventually be able to give you a helping hand professionally, but that's all in times to come.More
