News Americas, NEW YORK, NY, Mon. April 20, 2015: Snoop’s love of marijuana has turned serious. From transitioning to reggae music to an investment in Eaze, a mobile app, which aims to be the “Uber for marijuana,” Snoop is taking his rap: “Smoke weed everyday” to another level.
His venture firm, Casa Verde Capital, has contributed to a $10 million fundraising bid for Eaze’s mobile app, according to Madame Noire.
Eaze was launched last July in the Bay Area and has made 30,000 deliveries. This past November, the company raised $1.5 million and it is focusing on hiring 50 people in 50 days in demographics where marijuana has been legalized.
Besides Snoop’s investment, other funding was contributed by DCM Ventures, Fresh VC and 500 startups.
