Willie Nelson is widely adored for his classic country vibes, positive outlook, and, of course, his affection for marijuana. He’s practically become the face of the intersection between country music and the cannabis culture. A true OG, Willie has consistently advocated for the legalization of marijuana. Another celebrity who echoes this sentiment is Snoop Dogg, and interestingly, these two cannabis enthusiasts are genuine friends in real life!

Willie Nelson and Snoop Dogg share a special bond centered around their mutual love for music, marijuana, and a relaxed approach to life. As legends in their respective genres—country for Willie and rap for Snoop—they’ve discovered a common ground in their shared passion for cannabis. The duo has been spotted enjoying the herb together, shattering stereotypes and fostering a sense of camaraderie.


“He’s a good friend…We just kind of liked each other right away,” Willie shared with Yahoo Entertainment. “I was headed to Amsterdam, and Snoop and I had been talking, doing some recording and everything, so I called him and said, ‘Come on over!’ We hung out for a while over there and went to all the best [cannabis] spots over there.”

Willie Nelson and Snoop Dogg Have Teamed up on a Range of Projects Together

Willie and Snoop have collaborated on various projects, including music and joint appearances at events promoting cannabis culture. Their relationship exemplifies a cross-generational and cross-genre connection, showcasing the power of shared interests to foster genuine friendships in the world of entertainment. 


Willie most recently teamed up with Snoop in BIC’s “The Most Borrowed Lighter” campaign, showcasing a stroke of 420 marketing genius that aligns seamlessly with their well-established brand images.
