Calvin Cordozar Broadus, Jr., known by his stage names Snoop Doggy Dogg, Snoop Dogg, and later Snoop Lion, is an American rapper, singer-songwriter, and actor. Snoop has sold over 30 million albums worldwide. As a teenager, Snoop Dogg frequently ran into trouble with the law. He was a member of the Rollin’ 20 Crips gang in the Eastside of Long Beach,  although he stated in 1993 that he never joined a gang.  Shortly after graduating from high school, he was arrested for possession of cocaine, and for the following three years was frequently in and out of prison.  But even if he tried it, even if he was still a young man at that time, he was smart enough to understand what kind of toxic crap cocaine really is:
“Weed was one thing, but cocaine was an entirely different matter. After the first few times I never touched that shit again, and I wouldn’t to this day. There’s something about the way it smells, like you were putting some heavy-duty chemical in your body that wasn’t ever supposed to be there. And that feeling was proved out by the effect that blow would have on me. All that grinding-teeth-and-sweaty-palms shit wasn’t any way I wanted to live, not even for ten minutes, which was just about how long it took to rip through your body and leave was feeling weak and nervous and craving some more. Cocaine is poison, straight up, and if you’re sure enough got your culprit.” 
The Doggfather talks openly conspiracy theories surrounding flu shots, blue tooth technology, the 2012 apocalypse and of course drugs in the ghettos in various interviews, TV segments and in his book. Snoop Dogg is no dupe, he doesn’t think for a minute that all those toxic and deadly drugs found their way into the black communities all by themselves. Somebody dumped them there on purpose with a very specific plan in mind. This is what Snoop has to say on the subject:
I honestly believe that the government did put crack in the ghettos. Because I was one who sold crack and dibbled and dabbled around with it, and it just fell out the sky. It wasn’t just like it was something that just we grew it or knew how to make it from scratch, it was given to us. And when it was given to us we passed it on to our homies. If it was an older homie that knew how to do it, he passed it on to a couple of his homies. It was a situation that we never stopped to think ‘why is it here and how did it even get here?’ But I definitely think it was designed and planted by the government because they was so hard on it once we got it and mastered it. 
Possibly this was done on purpose to wreck the ghetto and possibly also in order to feed the new privitazed prison system with an endless supply of new clients. Snoop went on to compare the disparity between the punishment for possessing powdered cocaine vs crack:
If you notice powder cocaine still is not a felony compared to crack cocaine. You know we got some celebrities… I aint gonna say these white b*tches names, but these motherf*ckers always get caught with powder cocaine; riding on the freeway the wrong way, sniffing coke, doing all kind of retarded sh*t. And then you have a n*gga from the hood who get caught with a five piece rock and you give him his third strike. That’s why I say it’s definitely designed to break down the ghetto because it was planted in the ghetto.
