It appears Snoop' Dogg's love for Bob Marley and marijuana runs in the family.
Snoop's son Corde Calvin Broadus posted images of himself having smoking sessions with his famous father.
Broadus posted the controversial photos on his Instagram and they can also be seen through his Twitter account under his rap moniker "Spanky Danky."

In one of the shots, Snoop is rolling cigarettes for the father-and-son smoking session with the caption, "Wouldn't mind living in Amsterdam for a year."
Broadus' Instagram features a series of pictures of him smoking on his own, with his father, grandfather, friends and in a recording studio.
One image shows a sign that reads "Hippies Use The Front Door."
The photos are considered disturbing considering Broadus had a promising career as a college football player.
Snoop's reality show, 2008's "Snoop Dogg's Father Hood," starred the "Baby Boy" actor at home with his wife and children. Almost every episode featured a young Broadus as a high school football star. Snoop even coached his son's football team at the time.
According to several reports, the young athlete was being courted by many colleges and universities to prepare for a career as a professional football player. Instead, the self-described "18-year-old hippie" reportedly declined a possible college scholarship to follow in the footsteps of his father to pursue a career as a rapper.
On Sept. 7, Snoop Dogg announced to reporters that he was changing his name from Snoop Dogg to Snoop Lion.
The former gangster rapper changed his name after a Rastafarian priest gave him the name "Lion" in Jamaica where he traveled to start a new project.
The musician said that his trip to Jamaica was inspired by "a call from The Spirit."
"I wanna bury Snoop Dogg and become Snoop Lion," the rapper said at the Toronto International Film Festival, where he was promoting a new documentary chronicling the change. "I was always saying to myself I was Bob Marley reincarnated."
The rapper said the change is part of a spiritual and artistic rebirth and he will release a new reggae record called "Reincarnated" as part of his transformation.
"Reincarnated" will be Snoop Dogg's 12th album and is scheduled for release later this year.
