Snoop Dogg has announced on social media that he is giving up his most well-known vice.
“I’m giving up smoke,” Snoop Dogg wrote on X and Instagram. “After much consideration & conversation with my family, I’ve decided to give up smoke. Please respect my privacy at this time.”
No reason was given for the abrupt decision, nor was it specified if the noted cannabis enthusiast is passing strictly on the cannabis puff-puff.
Some speculated that the 52-year-old Snoop may switch to cannabis edibles to preserve his lungs.
Snoop and cannabis have long been linked during his career, starting with his guest appearances on Dr. Dre’s 1992 album, “The Chronic.”
Like tobacco smoke, marijuana smoke irritates the lungs. It also contains levels of volatile chemicals and tar that are similar to tobacco smoke, raising concerns about risk for cancer and lung disease for heavy users.
