Scientists breed new strains of pot for Snoop Lion!!!

Dr. Dina saved Snoop's life, yo!

She found a doctor in San Francisco who provided him with medical marijuana. Inspired by the experience, she facilitated the opening of a doctor's office for weed patients. She thought it would be great to get a celebrity client – and she knew just the right person to reach out to. "When the doctor wrote Snoop his note, he was so excited that he told Tiny, his seven-foot security guard, to put it in a silver briefcase," she says. "You'd have thought it was a million dollars."

Dr. Dina is now trying to establish herself as the friendly PR-ready face of the medical-marijuana movement. She stayed behind the scenes for the past decade, as a consultant to the medical-marijuana shops, and never got a piece of the Weeds action. "I didn't even know the show was happening," she says. "I saw this billboard with some girl who looked like me, and it said WEEDS. I was so scared: 'My game is up – they're coming to get me.'" She laughs. "It was around my birthday, and I thought it was a practical joke by Snoop. He goes, 'Girl, I love you, but a billboard's 50 grand – I ain't paying 50 grand for nobody.'"

These days, she's more interested in the science of cannabis – a friend who has a tissue-culture lab just made a kush strain for Snoop called "Snoop Lion Executive Branch."

I think the phrase "the science of cannabis" needs to be used more!

By the way, Snoop Dogg isn't smokin' any more...

Executive Branch is the name for Snoop's entire smoking line, from cigars to cigarillos.
