Hip-hop star Snoop Dogg has confessed he's embraced marijuana once again - 18 months after ditching the drug.

The GIN AND JUICE rapper announced in 2002 that he had kicked his longrunning drug habit, but now admits "it kicked me back".

The California-native says, "I could've lied and said, 'I've been off the weed for approximately...' but I'm gonna keep it real so y'all know.

"When I did stop, I stopped because I wanted to. It wasn't like nobody made me so it's more about me having control of myself and saying, 'This is what I do wanna do and what I don't wanna do.'"
