An impromptu concert by Snoop Dogg on Saturday left the small Eastern Oregon town of Ontario all shook up. Hotbox Farms, a new dispensary in town, hired the Califiornia rapper to perform at their offical store opening in Ontario. The company has a store 30 miles north in Huntington.
"Is anybody smoking that sticky icky icky?" Snoop asked the crowd as he puffed on a blunt. Actor Actor Jim Belushi was also on the bill.
Local authorities learned of the concert only on Friday and scrambled to manage a crowd of 3,000-5,000 in the town of 11,366 residents. But the show apparently went on without a hitch.
It was a busy weekend in Ontario. On Friday, Belushi, who lives in Oregon and has his own marijuana business Belushi's Private Vault, attended the Ontario Community Harvest Party at Four Rivers Cultural Center. The goal of the event was to raise awareness about Measure No. 23-61, which would end the ban on adult-use marijuana retail stores in Ontario. The vote is taking place on November 6.
One day earlier, Belushi reunited the Blues Brothers with Dan Akyroyd at the Harvest Fest at Belushi's Farm in Eagle Point in Southern Oregon. A new line of Blues Brothers cannabis products was announced and the black-suited duo performed "Soul Man" and other Blues Brothers favorites for 400 attendees.
