The most wonderful day of the year has arrived for pot smokers: Happy Weed Day — or, as it’s more affectionately known, happy 420!

Social media lit up with celebratory messages in favor of the controversial plant, which of course included one of the most famous weed lovers alive: Snoop Dogg. The rapper got a head start in celebrating with a message to his fellow potheads last night — we assume he knew the smokers would be a little groggy by the morning. He was probably right; we’re still waiting for a wake-and-bake message from Willie Nelson. But hey, Cheech and Chong got an early start! 

Snoop Dogg has taken the role of 420 Santa Claus.


Request granted! Fans of Snoop, and weed in general, flooded the rapper’s Twitter account with digital cookies. Many were very creative — we’re looking at you and your bong-shaped baked goods, @brooketrout_hey — and all were hilarious.










Surprisingly, Snoop Dogg was early to rise on this April day and spent the morning sharing even more weed-themed messages to his pot-loving friends.
