Hip-hop veteran B-Real has been honoured as High Times magazine's 2014 Stoner of the Year.

The Cypress Hill star, known for songs like Light Another and Something For the Blunted, was presented with a trophy in the shape of a bong during the weekend (08-09Feb14) High Times Awards ceremony, and he used his acceptance speech to celebrate the wider acceptance of cannabis culture.

He said, "To see the culture evolve from what it was 20, 23 years ago to where it is now, it's been constant growth, progress, knowledge, education. And, the product has been much better."

B-Real joins the likes of Snoop Dogg and Wiz Khalifa, who have previously had the high honour bestowed upon them.
