Snoop Dogg will be celebrating April 20th this year as only Snoop knows how. To commemorate the unofficial pot smoker's holiday, the rapper will host two "Wellness Retreat" concerts with Wiz Khalifa in the two most marijuana-friendly states in the land: Washington and Colorado.
Featuring the slogan "Inhale. Exhale. Recharge," Snoop's Wellness Retreat will kick off on Saturday, April 19th at Seattle's WaMu Theater before heading to Red Rocks Theater in Denver for 4/20 itself. Just in case the holiday theme wasn't evident enough from its pot-leaf-emblazoned design, the event's poster also directs fans to "Get higher with recreational gurus Snoop Dogg and Wiz Khalifa." The Denver event will also feature YG and Smoke DZA, while the Seattle date simply boasts "additional special guests to be announced."
Colorado and Washington both passed ballot initiatives legalizing recreational marijuana this year, although openly smoking in public is still not technically allowed.
Despite multiple arrests for marijuana possession in less enlightened locales, Snoop has made no secret of his fondness for the herb. Just before Coachella 2012, he even announced plans to release a "Smokable Songbook" of his lyrics printed on hemp-seed rolling paper.
Snoop Dogg will also be performing with the Roots at the end of May during the seventh annual Roots Picnic in Pennsylvania, a state which has not yet legalized recreational marijuana.
