Snoop Dogg's 420 party shut down by police
MANILA, Philippines - Officials put an end to rapper Snoop Dogg's annual 420 Hollywood party due to complaints by neighbors, the Daily Mail reports.
The affair, a massive "celebration of all things cannabis," began at 11am on April 20 (April 21 MNL) and was cut short by police just as Snoop Dogg arrived. Aside from the party not having a permit, several neighbors also complained about the noise level and parking issues.
Snoop Dogg — now going by the name Snoop Lion — reportedly cooperated with authorities and no citations were issued.
According to an article about 420 by The Huffington Post, April 20 has come to be known as "International Weed Day" where pot smokers from around the globe come together to commemorate marijuana and the cannabis culture.
Snoop Dogg's 18-year-old son "Spanky Danky" Broadus is known to advocate the complete legalization of the drug, posting pictures of him smoking a giant bong on social media. - Rappler.com
