Ever since reporter Charlo Greene quit her job on the air, she's been making the rounds explaining her actions and her advocacy of marijuana legalization.
And she's been making a bit of a stick with stunts like lighting up live on air!
But when Snoop, AKA Snoop Dogg, Snoop Lion, AKA Nemo Hoes, is on the desk, Charlo definitely comes across as the straight-laced one in the interview!

Obviously with Snoop's audience, Charlo's weed advocacy may be preaching to the choir, but it's nice to hear out her argument in a judgment free environment like GGN Hood News.
And his special announcement just may turn the tide of Alaska's legalization vote!

Dear New Zealand, YOU ROCK!!!
The land of the kiwis just became one of our new favorite places on the planet as it is set to become the latest country to legalize same-sex marriage!
Hundreds of supporters gathered in screening rooms to watch and celebrate as the historic Marriage Equality Bill was passed with 77 votes to 44!
Labour MP Louisa Wall (pictured above) was
one of THE key figure behind the bill and had a short but sweet message after the HUGE victory:
“In our society the meaning of marriage is universal - it's a declaration of love and commitment to a special person.”
As always, there were still people who opposed the legalization of same-sex marriage, but Customs Minister Maurice Williamson told the haters to chill out, saying:

Jeremy Irons has been in a questionable position since he voiced his concerns on the legalization of same-sex marriage on HuffPost Live.
But the actor, whose father-marrying-son soundbite — WTF, right?? — has now been heard round the world, took to his official website to post an open letter regarding his prior comments. And, as it happens, it turns out Jeremy is far from anti-gay.

Believe it or not, squares, but hemp is actually a VERY versatile material!
Now, Kentucky farmers might be able to grow hemp for a variety of products — because a vote passed the state Senate on Thursday! It isn't just some hippie material, and it has a lot of promise as an industry. That is, if the skepticism from the governor and Kentucky State Police don't ruin the chances completely!
Still, the latest 31-6 vote is very promising and could make Kentucky among the first in the nation to legalize the crop, potentially creating thousands of hemp-related jobs growing and processing the plant's fiber and seeds.
The problem is, people are afraid of it because it's a relative to marijuana!
