American rapper Snoop Dogg is as concerned about inflation as is everyone in the United States — so much so that he gave his professional blunt roller a raise. Likely to be one of the most overworked individuals on Snoop Dogg’s crew, the blunt roller was already high-up on the payroll list.
UberFacts posted a tweet earlier this month that said Snoop Dogg’s professional blunt roller “makes between $40,000 and $50,000 a year”. The rapper, known to be a daily consumer of cannabis, responded, “Inflation. Their salary went up!!.”
Snoop Dogg has previously admitted that he loves to use cannabis but he is not a fan of doing the hard work of rolling his own blunts. He also shares a special connection with his blunt roller, who gets him an hourly dose without being told.
Snoop Dogg said he was fond of his roller’s “impeccable timing” while making an appearance at the Howard Stern Show in 2019 along with celebrity podcaster Seth Rogen, CNN reported.
“That’s his J-O-B, his occupation”, Snoop Dogg said on the show. “On his resume it says, ‘what do you do?’ ‘I’m a blunt roller.’ P-B-R, professional blunt roller”, he added.
Snoop Dogg revealed in a social media post last year that he takes roughly 21 smoke breaks in a day — keeping his PBR occupied through the day.
Inflation has climbed in the United States at a historic rate — 8.6% in the last month. But this is not bad news for Snoop Dogg and blunt roller’s love for marijuana. The cannabis industry in the United States has largely remained stable.
In February, the cost of cannabis was not increasing as much as other items — and in some cases, a bag of edibles or an eighth of an ounce of marijuana might even be cheaper than it was last year, according to CNN reports.
