Snoop Dogg is launching his own tobacco cigar line called, Executive Branch.

During my travels throughout South America and the Caribbean, I was fortunate to encounter this tobacco company, Executive Branch and was so impressed by their commitment to quality [far superior than all others], I knew I had to bring them to the States for all my fans to enjoy," Snoop Dogg says in a press release. "Throughout 2012, we plan on releasing new styles and flavors, in which I will be working with their team to make sure all products are up to Snoop Dogg standards."

The first product to be released from Executive Branch will be the Executive Branch Cigarillos. They will be sold for "$0.99 a pouch, with two cigars per pouch." The cigarillos are manufactured by Dufort Holdins SA and distributed by Good Times USA.
