Snoop Lion apparently made a little bet on the Floyd Mayweather Jr. vs. Saul "Canelo" Alvarez title fight Saturday.

Only Lion, of course, didn't bet money.

On Wednesday, Lion posted a photo to his Instagram account of himself holding a giant bag of marijuana.

The photo was captioned: "Thanks to the champ money may for winning me a pound from my mexican buddy Lui !! U r the pound for pound best! N I'm gonna smoke 2 dat !!! Hahahahahahahah."

The rapper, however, recently made headlines for a different type of green.

Lion recently donated money to the funeral of a 6-year-old girl shot in Moreno Valley.
