"I think there should be some sort of clause, as is the case in the sport for the NBA and the NFL, where there are certain rules according to which minorities must get first place," he said. the rapper of 48 years, during a recent panel of the Revolt Summit in Los Angeles.
"So it would take a person of color or someone from a minority community to be a priority, then the others in ***** s who have money could take action. Because it should not be based on lack of money. "
Snoop's remarks highlight the significant inequality in the legal cannabis industry.
