Snoop Dogg Keeps His Son Away From Pot

Snoop Dogg and pot smoking are synonymous. He is often pictured with billows of smoke around him in videos and photos. While Snoop shares his habit with the world, there is one person he isn't sharing it with -- his son.

Cordell Broadus, Snoop Dogg's second oldest son, is a football star. The 17-year-old is a "top Division I football prospect," according to ESPN.

He and Snoop Dogg are a part of a new documentary series on ESPN called Snoop & Son: A Dad's Dream. The series follows Snoop's relationship with his son as Cordell pursues his dream of being a true football star.

Snoop's son openly addressed the topic of smoking pot and why he won't do it.

According to TMZ, Cordell has said that he doesn't "mess with that at all," and gives advice to fellow athletes, saying, "[I]f you're an athlete you shouldn't cheat your body."

What does his father, Snoop Dogg, have to say about all this?

Snoop said, "I don't want him no where near it."

Thankfully, Cordell has followed his father's advice, and it shows in his already impressive football career. Snoop's son is a wide receiver at Bishop Gorman High School in Las Vegas, and will probably have his choice of colleges.

According to ESPN, "In his senior season, Broadus caught 39 passes for 602 yards and 11 touchdowns as Bishop Gorman went undefeated and won the Nevada Division I state championship."

The five-part series showcases Snoop's relationship with his son, how he is trying to lead him in the right direction, his "efforts to be a part of his son's life."

According to ESPN, you get to "see a very different side of Snoop." This different side includes "a man navigating the line between father and friend" and also someone "whose interest in his son's life reflects what he himself never had." Basically, you'll see Snoop trying to make sure his son doesn't make the mistakes he made.

The show is getting a lot of good press. People are impressed with Snoop Dogg's son, and not just for his impressive football stats. Snoop's son received tweets commenting on his humility and hard work.

As Rory Karpf, the show's producer has said, the show gives us a look at a "father who is extremely proud of his son." And he should be.
