LOS ANGELES (KTLA) — Rapper Snoop Lion (formerly known as Snoop Dogg) says he wants to help educate children on smoking weed.

Snoop says he wants to stop kids from overdosing by providing information about proper methods for smoking.

He coaches eight and nine year olds at the Orange County Junior All America Football League on how to avoid irresponsible drug use.

Snoop also has plans to back up his talk with some literature — a children’s book, to be exact.

The book, called “It’s Just a Plant: A Children’s Story of Marijuana,” is about a little girl who is taught the “awesomeness” of pot by her parents.
