Marijuana enthusiast Snoop Dogg launched a website yesterday, and of course it's all about weed. Merry Jane, which the rapper announced at TechCrunch Disrupt, is what TechCrunch describes as an "information hub" for all things pot; Snoop says it will be a sort of cannabis encyclopedia giving users "all they need to know." There will be shows and videos centered around the marijuana lifestyle, including a food show (cooking with cannabis or pairing meals with pot), celebrity interview videos, and a show called "Deflowered," which will feature people doing something for the first time.
There will also be editorial content looking at marijuana news from legalization to pot policy to the business side and the politics of pot. And, of course, there will be a database featuring all sorts of cannabis strains so that users can decide which one is right for them and where they can find it. It sounds pretty high-tech, featuring "high-res rotating imagery for every product listed" and allowing users to search via type, flavor, or even symptom. Right now the site is in beta ("I'm givn away 420 sneak peeks a day," Snoop tweeted. "Sign up now at http://MERRYJANE.com & put 1 n the air !!") but it will be open to the public within the next few weeks. (Click to read about eight other celebrities with surprising side businesses.)
