Snoop Dogg and Patrick Stewart Are Investing in a Cannabis Company Together

When you think of famous celebrities teaming up for projects, you probably think about Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling in La La Land or Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga in the new A Star is Born. But apparently we can add a new celebrity duo that everyone has been expecting for years: Snoop Dogg and Sir Patrick Stewart.

Snoop is investing $10 million in Oxford Cannabinoid Technologies, a company based out of the United Kingdom that's researching marijuana's effects on pain and inflammation. Snoop is the second celebrity to work with Oxford as actor Patrick Stewart had been involved in the company for several months, and serves on the company's advisory board.

Both Snoop and Stewart are open about their cannabis use. Stewart admitted he uses medical marijuana to help deal with arthritis related issues. and obviously we don't have to talk about Snoop's well-documented history with the drug.

Snoop is investing in Oxford through his venture capital firm Casa Verde, a firm that invests money in cannabis businesses that aren't directly involved in the actual production, distribution and sale of marijuana.

Now we just need Stewart to invite Snoop to meet the Queen of England.

Latest.

Many are waiting for the next state to make the major step of legalizing recreational marijuana, and according to one state senator, the state to watch is New Mexico. New Mexico State Senator Jerry Ortiz y Pino says he believes a bill he recently introduced to legalize recreational marijuana will pass in the near future. A similar bill was introduced last year in the New Mexico state house, but it failed to get enough support.
