Snoop Dogg has been known for many things throughout his career, but most notably — his love for weed.
Today (Nov. 16), the West Coast hip hop legend made a shocking announcement, stating that he’s quit smoking. “After much consideration and conversation with my family, I’ve decided to give up smoke,” a statement on his Instagram page read. “Please respect my privacy at this time.”
Although Snoop did not specify what kind of smoke he’s quitting, he has always been a huge advocate for marijuana. In 2020, he was honored with the Clio Cannabis Awards’ Lifetime Achievement for his work and impact on the cannabis industry.
As previously reported by REVOLT, back in September, the stoner revealed the unbelievable amount of blunts he smoked in a day. “Let me show y’all what I been doing today,” Snoop said before showing off a line of 11 clips in total. “All in a day’s work. Oh wow, that’s some good work dog. What kinda pack was it? Death Row. Let a brother know.”
Earlier this year, the “Drop It Like It’s Hot” hitmaker said he cut down on smoking after becoming a grandfather. During an exclusive interview with Daily Mail back in March, Snoop opened up about about how the arrival of his first grandchild gave him the opportunity to reflect on the lifestyle he’s been living.
“Being a grandfather has changed me in multiple ways,” he began. “The main way is being concerned with how I live, how I move, the kind of people I’m associated with because I want to see my grandkids grow old. The only way I can do that is to take precautionary steps as far as how I move, who I hang out with, where I go out, my intake, what am I intaking. Am I doing extra-curricular or am I just doing what I’m supposed to be doing?”
