Foster the People Singer: Snoop Dogg Helped Me Quit Smoking Marijuana

An unlikely overlap in the venn diagram between Snoop Dogg and Nancy Reagan has emerged: the term "Just Say No."

Snoop, who has made smoking marijuana a very public cornerstone of his long career, made a surprising move when he met Mark Foster, the lead singer of Foster the People.

Foster, he tells Q Magazine in its new issue, had just quit partaking in the chronic three days earlier, but as he told Snoop, "I quit smoking but I'd have one with now if I had the chance." The rapper's response? "He said 'Y'know what, brother: sometimes you gotta slow down and focus on your s--t.'"

Lesson learned. "From the godfather of marijuana smoking! That was good enough for me," Foster said.

It was a case of do as I say, not as I do; just last week, Dogg was issued a citation and ultimately fined in Norway for possession of the drug.
