I only eat Kelloggs murder flakes. They’re homicidelicious.

I *might* eat these if they had little pot leaf marshmallows.
- but they don't.

that's pretty genius level marketing. i *might* also eat these if they had pot leaf shaped marshmallows.

as it is, i will still probably buy one box to keep in the collection

In the future I suspect you could have edibles in these.
not a large amount but if you ate a box then maybe a total of 20-60mg.

"MORE UNHEALTHYNESS FOR BLACK AMERICA!"

You say this like white folks aren't Snoop's biggest fans. Besides that, making this racial is ridiculous. C'mon, now.

"not trying to make this racial"

- The person who mentioned the unhealthiness of Black America

speaking from the point of view of someone having lived in predominantly low income black/brown neighborhoods, there is quite a big difference from the type of food and snack foods readily available to what is commonly found in middle class white areas.

ever heard of rap snacks?

or how about this one, grape drink? dave chapelle wasn't exaggerating in his skit one bit. Grape drink was sold at the local convenience stores in Oakland , CA when i lived there. There was no juice.

and so yes, having a role model for the black community push a new unhealthy food product says one thing to me. especially when the box advertises more of it.

I wouldn't really think of Snoop, if asked to list black role models.
The lack of healthy food options in low income black communities (but also generally low income) seems to be a symptom of late stage capitalism. Communities that Snoop himself grew up in. I hear what you're saying, it's not good, but one new cereal isn't really going to tip the scale here when the economic system and government in the US has its thumb on said scale
