Famous Addiction Quotes Snoop Dogg_01What exactly has Snoop said about use of psychoactive substances? Should we use his life as an example for our own? We explore here, and invite you to LIKE, SHARE, or COMMENT on our collection of culturally iconic quotes from Snoop Dogg.

Snoop Dogg’s problems surrounding his drug use

Snoop Dogg (most recently a.k.a. Snoop Lion) is a bona fide star with record-selling albums and world-wide fame. Back in 2002 he announced that he’d quit smoking marijuana, but shortly after this announcement, he slipped back into the old habit. From our point of view, besides great music, drugs are an identifiable part of his image and lifestyle.

However, he has had many legal issues around his drug use and possession in the past. On top of charges for cocaine and marijuana use, he’s been involved in murder trials and even been banned from visiting some countries! So, how much should we be modeling our ideas or behaviors around Snoop’s statements?

In our opinion, no matter who you are, when you use drugs, you face the physical and psychological side effects, the underlying health risks, and legal troubles. While the celebrity life is glamorous… drug and alcohol addiction ARE NOT.

We’d like to hear your input on that. If you have any questions and comments, please post them in the comments section below. And, if you like our infographic, feel free to use it in the classroom or office (as long as you reference us ;).

When looking for a viable solution for your child’s drug problem, it is important to not waste any time. If you realize that your child needs professional help and can’t recover without it, it is in his best interests that you take action as soon as possible and admit him to a place that will help him recover. The earlier you take a decision, the easier it will be for her to recover completely. With a little bit of effort, you can find a place that is perfect for teen drug counseling for your child.

Hello Newport. Yes, we agree that early detection and immediate action can be crucial for a successful recovery. After treatment may be even more important than early treatment. We appreciate you sharing your advise with others.

So many celebs are promoting cannabis smoking as safe and fun, and they are getting traction among all walks to society. What doesn’t get recognised is the fact that it can cause psychosis (the link to cannabis is often missed), induce paranoia, remove motivation and cause untold mental damage. He says it comes from the ground and is natural but this weed has been genetically modified to be many, many times more addictive than it was when Snoop Dogg was a kid.
