Snoop Lion will show his children how to smoke pot.

The 'Drop It Like It's Hot' hitmaker - who recently reinvented himself as reggae star Snoop Lion from hip-hop artist Snoop Dogg - plans to demonstrate a safe way for his kids Corde, Cordell and Cori to use marijuana if they want to smoke it when they are older.

He told GQ magazine: ''It's not that I would ever push weed on our kids, but if they wanted to, I would love to show them how, the right way, so that way they won't get nothing put in their s**t or overdose or trying some s**t that ain't clean.''

Snoop recently spent the festive season with his family and he stuffed his children's stockings full to the brim with expensive gifts.

He said: ''The kids love the Dogg but they're loving the Lion too. I like to spend Christmas with my family. I'm on the road so much that it's important that I make time during the holidays. My kids are very fortunate and I've been known to stuff a few stockings at Christmas time.''
