Not Available Lead

Back in the fall of 2005, Snoop Dogg started his Snoop Youth Football League in California. Since then, the league has helped quite a few kids launch NFL careers and made a big difference in the lives of countless others. We caught up with Snoop back in September, and he told us all about how much the league has grown in recent years.

But apparently, Snoop didn’t know exactly what he was getting into back when he first launched the league. Specifically, he didn’t know that he wasn’t going to be able to smoke marijuana all the time when he was going to be interacting with kids so often. During an appearance on Khloe Kardashian’s Kocktails with Khloe last night, Snoop admitted that he actually had to ban himself from smoking for three months after one of his players called him out for smelling like weed during the league's first season.

“I went to practice high one day and one of the kids said, ‘Coach, you smell like my mama’s boyfriend,’” he told Khloe. “And I had to check myself. I stopped smoking from that day for 180 days straight. And it made me a better coach, a better person, and I stopped smoking when I was coaching football. So every year when I coach football around the kids, I don’t smoke, so that’s three months out of the year that I do that.”

That’s great, but how did Snoop not know that it wasn’t a good idea to smoke before coaching youth football games in the first place?

Oh well. At least he doesn’t do it anymore. To watch the rest of Snoop’s interview—and to see him do an excellent Farrah Abraham impression—go here.
