Snoop Dogg -- a.k.a. Snoop Lion -- is on the cover of The Hollywood Reporter this month, and in the accompanying profile, he explains to writer Shirley Halperin that he's well aware that his kids smoke pot, and that it wouldn't be fair of him to try to stop them.

In the story, as his son Corde, 18, hits a two-foot high bong, Snoop waxes philosophical:

My kids can do whatever the hell they want...For me to say otherwise would be hypocritical. A lot of motherf--ers don't have a relationship with their kids, and that's when they get on drugs and have suicidal thoughts and drive drunk. Me and my son is mellow. I'm his father, so I wanna show him the proper way because he looks up to me. What better way to get it than from the master?

It's tough logic to argue with, were one inclined to argue at all. Plenty of other people have certainly learned how to get high from Snoop, and "the master" is probably not much of an exaggeration.
