Here’s a social network that promises to be way more fun than Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn or any of them will ever be.

The rapper Snoop Dogg announced at a tech conference Monday that he’s starting a social network based around cannabisIt’s gonna be called “Merry Jane.”

It’s in beta testing now — only 420 people will be allowed in at first. Clever, huh?

Snoop says he uses pot medicinally, and ‘cause it’s a peace thing for him.

So he knows his customer base — that’s a plus.
