Thanks to California’s new marijuana laws, Snoop Dogg’s Twitch stream won’t get pulled down if he smokes weed on camera.

The legendary rapper turned streaming gamer tested his newfound freedom on Tuesday by smoking a blunt while streaming a promotional video game to around 80,000 viewers, reports Polygon.
