Rapper Snoop Dogg Announces Decision To Quit Smoking Weed


Snoop Dogg

American rap icon, Calvin Broadus aka Snoop Dogg has announced his decision to quit smoking marijuana.

The notorious weed smoker made the announcement in a statement he shared online on Thursday, November 16.

 ‘I’m giving up smoke,’ the rapper claimed in his post, which included a statement reading: ‘After much consideration with my family, I’ve decided to give up smoke.’

The 52-year-old added before signing off the message, ‘Please respect my privacy at this time.’


It has come as a shock to fans of the veteran rapper who is famously known for his love for consuming weed.

It was once claimed that the rapper had someone rolling 75-150 joints for him per day, a claim which he would later dismiss.

Renegade Piranha, who had claimed to be Snoop’s ‘personal blunt roller’ (PBR) said last year: ‘On average, I do about half a pound a day, which seems excessive. So that’s roughly like 75 to 150 units per day. I calculate it at over 450,000 blunts.’

However, in March this year he admitted he had moderated his weed intake after becoming a grandfather.

Speaking to DailyMail.com in March, Snoop said his personal use was scrutinized after eldest child Cordé became a father to son Zion in 2015.

‘Being a grandfather has changed me in multiple ways,’ he said.

‘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?’
