Snoop Dogg says he's giving up smoking after conversation with his family

Snoop Dogg has delivered a startling revelation, announcing that he is putting an end to his years-long marijuana use.
On Thursday (November 16), the 52-year-old rapper surprised social media with an unexpected message that stated: "After much consideration & conversation with my family, I've decided to give up smoke."

Dogg, also known as Calvin Cordozar Broadus Jr., added, "Please respect my privacy at this time," and reiterated his commitment in the caption: "I’m giving up smoke."

Given Snoop Dogg's longstanding association with marijuana throughout his career, fans quickly began to speculate whether he was genuinely serious about this decision or if it was meant as a joke.

Check out Snoop's announcement below:

One fan on the X (formerly known as Twitter) humorously remarked, "Today isn’t April Fools Day, Snoop," while another expressed, "The world is changing before our eyes in ways we won’t comprehend for generations."

Speculations arose among others, questioning if Snoop's post was part of a marketing strategy for his cannabis company, Leafs By Snoop, or an indication that he intends to introduce a new line of non-smoking products such as vapes.

"This is probably just gonna be some viral campaign where he launches his own line of vapes or edibles or something," commented one person, while another predicted, "Snoop bout to launch vapes or gummies or something."

Amid the speculation, many sent well-wishes for his next life phase, with one user emphasizing that "health comes above anything else" and that Snoop is "setting a great example for everyone."

"No matter how long it takes, one thing you’ll realize in the end is that smoking is not good for your health. If you wish to live long, this is your sign to quit too!" added a fourth user.
The owner of Death Row Records is not only widely recognized for his impactful rap lyrics but has also become closely associated with cannabis consumption, holding business interests in various edibles and marijuana strains.

His fame catapulted when he featured on Dr. Dre's 1992 album, The Chronic, an album whose CD artwork prominently featured a marijuana leaf. Snoop Dogg further solidified his connection with cannabis when he notably smoked a joint before his Super Bowl LVI halftime show in 2022.

This isn't the first instance of Snoop making an announcement regarding his substance use. In 2002, he declared his intention to quit the drug for good, but unfortunately, he later experienced a relapse.
However, this time there may be a notable shift, as the 'Young, Wild & Free' artist shared with Daily Mail in March that he was reducing his smoking habits, influenced by the experience of becoming a grandfather.

"Being a grandfather has brought about multiple changes in me," he explained. "The primary change is my concern for how I live, my actions, the kind of people I associate with, because I want to witness my grandkids grow old."

"The only way I can achieve that is by taking precautionary measures in terms of my lifestyle, my social circle, my outings, my consumption—evaluating what I'm taking in. Am I engaging in extracurricular activities, or am I simply doing what I'm supposed to be doing?" he added.
