Snoop’s consistent attendance on The Chronic and his affinity for cannabis culture endeared him to millions. Numerous references to weed littered The Chronic’s intro and outro, "Let Me Ride" and "The $20 Sack Pyramid". Visually there was Snoop’s white hat with its blurred #Marijuana leaf logo, and the Chronic became eternal nickname for cannabis, in part because the mixture of Dr. Dre’s velvety instrumentals mixed with Snoop’s jazzlike cadence were a match made in Gangsta Rap Heaven and #Weed fantasy.
The Chronic had political implications as well. Names such as Dr. Dre, Snoop & Cypress Hill weren’t the primary inspirations behind Proposition 215, the bill that made California the first state to #Legalize medical marijuana in November 1996.
But their collective normalizing influence on Society’s Acceptance of Weed is indisputable, and despite critics’ moves toward maintaining marijuana as a societal ill, hip-hop ignited a THC-laced conversation that has since grown increasingly public in recent years.
The Chronic is the debut solo album by hip hop artist Dr. Dre. It was released on December 15, 1992 through Death Row Records and distributed through Priority Records. The recording sessions took place in June 1992 at Death Row Studios in Los Angeles and at Bernie Grundman Mastering in Hollywood.
The Album is named after a slang term for high-grade #Cannabis, and its cover is an homage to Zig-Zag rolling papers. It was recorded by Dr. Dre as a result of his departure from the N.W.A. and from the Ruthless Records following a financial dispute and contains subtle but direct attacks on Ruthless Records and its owner, former N.W.A. member Eazy-E. It features many appearances by then-emerging rapper Snoop, who used the album as a launch pad for his own solo career.
At the time of launch, The Chronic was well received by most music critics and was a success in terms of sales. The album reached number 3 on the Billboard 200 and sold to over 5.7 million copies, making Dr. Dre one of the top ten best-selling music artists of 1993.
The Chronic popularized the hip hop music subgenre, G-Funk but also Gangsta Rap and is seen as one of the most important and influential albums of the 90's and fans of the genre consider it as one of the best hip-hop material of all time. In 2003, the album was ranked 137th on Rolling Stone magazine's Top 500 Albums of All Time.

Dr. Dre & Weed / Brass Knuckles
Dr. Dre who rapped "I don’t smoke weed or sess / Cause it’s known to give a brother brain damage / And brain damage on the mic don’t manage." Four years later, with the help of a young Snoop, he would release The Chronic, its cover featuring his face in the center of the Zig Zag rolling papers logo, and few years ago he went into cannabis industry with Xzibit, as they launched Brass Knuckles Brand.
One year ago, three individuals were suing the two rappers and their weed company, Brass Knuckles, claiming they did a ton of legwork for them and eventually struck a deal to acquire a 14.5 percent stake in the business.
Dr. Dre's Lawyer, Howard King said "without any allegations of anything done by [Dre] that would justify naming him as a defendant," and that doing so "is nothing more than a blatant and short-sighted attempt by the plaintiffs to generate publicity for their cause."
Note Dr. Dre is an alleged secret part owner of Brass Knuckles. He is listed as a defendant and part owner of Brass Knuckles alleges another lawsuit filed claiming the plaintiffs were screwed out their investment.
