A jaw dropping decision he had to take after “much consideration and conversation with his family.”
Salt and pepper.
Peanut butter and jelly.
Guns and ammo.
Pears and cheese.
Dogs and fleas.
Eggs and bacon.
Christmas and pine trees.
Marijuana and Snoo…
While a radio was somewhere rapping “…blaze it up, ‘sup, Snoop?” more than a hundred million jaws had dropped last Thursday morning as Snoop Dogg announced on his X profile that he was “giving up smoke.”
“Damn, the world is really really coming to an end,” one fan had immediately commented.
Hundreds of comments had followed, and to answer another startled fan; it definitely wasn’t on the first of April that Snoop Dogg had stunned the world.
The long, well-documented love relationship between the rapper and what “makes him feel the way he needs to feel”, it seems, had suddenly lost its flame…
“After much consideration and conversation with my family, I’ve decided to give up smoke,” the 52-year-old music icon wrote on a black and white X post – putting his ringed fingers together as though he was praying, without giving into many details.
Looks like Snoop Dogg’s family had been involved in both, the end, and the beginning of the singer’s legendary relationship to marijuana.
Back in 2008, Snoop told Esquire that he had first tried marijuana with one of his uncles in the 1970s.
Fun fact: he was born in 1971.
And with a dry “please respect my privacy at this time,” he finished his written announcement.
“A Dogg’s gotta do what a Dogg’s gotta do,” tweeted a cannabis news reporter of High Times Magazine.
As the million opinions of his fans ranged from support, criticism to mockery, some view the whole move as a premeditated step to start a new profitable business.
“This is probably just gonna be some viral campaign where he launches his own line of vapes or edibles or something,” wrote a skeptical fan.
But to give Snoop a little credit, this announcement, as shocking as it may seem to his fans today, didn’t come out of “complete” blue.
In March 2022, he told the MailOnline that becoming a grandfather had made him question his weed consumption habits and that he was actively trying to moderate his intake after becoming a grandfather.
“Being a grandfather has changed me in multiple ways,” Snoop 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?”
Moral of the story:
Whatever circumstances are pushing Snoopy to quit smoking, he is certainly setting a great example to everyone who is currently struggling to overcome an addiction or any sort of hardships
