Snoop Dogg claims he is now “giving up smoke” in his latest statement on social media.
After a brief statement hit the web Thursday, Snoop told fans he had arrived at this decision “after much consideration and conversation with my family.”
Additional context wasn’t immediately provided.

Back in 2020, Snoop was honored with the Clio Cannabis Awards’ Lifetime Achievement distinction for his longtime association with the wide world of cannabis. As noted at the time of the awards unveiling, Snoop’s business contributions to the cannabis industry included the Merry Jane brand and his Lefas by Snoop line. In addition, he also had his and Ted Chung’s Casa Verde firm.
This is not the first time Snoop became a headline about potentially not smoking over the years. Back in October, there was quite the media pickup regarding Ed Sheeran’s eyesight-altering experience with a blunt.
According to Sheeran, the smoke session included Snoop, Russell Crowe.
Snoop’s appreciation for weed has also been the subject of speculation when it comes to daily intake.
During a 360 with Speedy interview back in 2021 with Complex, Snoop was asked to try putting a number to the total amount of joints and blunts he’s enjoyed. According to Snoop’s estimate, he had likely smoked more than 650,000 joints and 420,000 blunts at that point in his life.
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.’
It was once claimed that the rapper – born Calvin Cordozar Broadus Jr – had someone rolling 75-150 joints for him per day, which he would later dispute and dismiss.
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?’
The father-of-four is a parent to Cordé, 28, Cordell, 26, and Cori, 23, from his 25-year marriage to Shante Broadus, and son Julian, 25 from a former relationship with Laurie Holmond.
