One of the most recognized marijuana smoking celebrities is rapper Snoop Dogg.
The rapper, who is now a cannabis entrepreneur, stopped by Caroline’s Cannabis, a pot shop in Uxbridge, from 4 to 5 p.m. on Tuesday for a brief meet-and-greet with customers.
Caroline’s Cannabis is owned by Caroline Frankel, Massachusetts’ first woman-owned, small business retail cannabis store. The store opened in March as the first pot shop in the Blackstone Valley.
“Caroline worked her tail off for this,” her husband Steve said. “A mom and pop shop. We’re not rich. She worked her (butt) off for this. Did what she could do and made a fantastic brand for herself.”
Snoop Dogg has his own business called Leafs by Snoop, which includes marijuana flower and cannabis-infused chocolate. The brand is owned and promoted by rapper Snoop Dogg but produced by Canopy Growth Corporation.
Snoop said to those who purchased more than $100 at Caroline’s that they could potentially win a smoking session with him. While none of it occurred Tuesday, Snoop opened the door for a possibility in the future.
“I will be back in this motha,” Snoop Dogg said.
