This Rapper Just Won the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge with Marijuana

Just when you thought all variations on the Ice Bucket Challenge had been exhausted, rapper B-Real from Cypress Hill shows up with a bucket of marijuana.

“I know we’re going through a drought with water and all that stuff, so we’re going to do it a little different, but I accept the challenge,” B-Real, a noted marijuana advocate, says in a video posted last week to Hustla Subs, a hip-hop YouTube channel, just before a large bucket of marijuana buds is dumped over his head.

“Snoop Dogg, Willie Nelson, Woody Harrelson — you’ve got 24 hours to accept,” B-Real says at the end of the video, challenging three other celebrities with well-known affinities for cannabis.

We eagerly await responses from these three.

Donations inspired by the ubiquitous Ice Bucket Challenge — in which participants pour a bucket of ice water on their heads to raise awareness of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), a degenerative nerve disease — have been coming in at an astounding rate since the practice went viral earlier this summer.

As of Tuesday, the ALS Association (ALSA) — which fights the disease by funding research, supporting people with the condition and corralling federal resources — had collected $88.5 million toward its efforts, a majority of which had been donated in the past seven days. It’s a particularly stunning figure considering that the organization took in just $2.6 million in the same period last year, according to a statement released by the group.
