Snoop Dogg is capable of rolling more than one type of green. After its first round of capital funding, Snoop’s cannabis venture firm Casa Verde Capital managed to raise $45 million to reinvest in businesses related to the pot world. The success promises a lot of lifeblood for new ventures, though none of it will actually towards growing or selling marijuana. Snoop, who goes by his real name Calvin Broadus on the Casa Verde Capital website, co-founded the company in 2015. It invests in ‘ancillary’ businesses rather than dispensaries, farms, or other businesses that “touch the plant,” according to the group. Many investors see this as a safer bet while cannabis remains federally illegal, particularly with the looming threat of a crackdown on state-legal cannabusinesses by the Trump administration. “We’re investing in the picks and shovels,”  Karan Wadhera, the managing partner who joined Casa Verde Capital in 2016, told TechCrunch.
