Snoop Dogg's career has repeatedly been associated with marijuana, so, unsurprisingly, his recent statement has left fans astounded.

As a 52-year-old American musician, Snoop Dogg is one of the most prominent figures of the hip-hop culture, with global recognition and respect. He has spent over three decades in the industry, working alongside some of the biggest names in music.

Mention Snoop Dogg to many people, and the response will almost unanimously revolve around a marijuana joint. The rapper has been symbolic of his marijuana use, which has become a distinguishing part of his persona.

A central component of this narrative involves a person operating under the alias "Renegade Piranha," Snoop Dogg's joint roller till recent times. Even until 2022, she spoke about preparing between 75 and 150 joints daily, consuming an average of 250 grams daily!

Snoop Dogg Abruptly Quits Smoking, Stunning Fans

Can there be a pairing more iconic than Snoop Dogg and marijuana? There can be a concept that shocked fans and those who knew of his preference for joints. In an Instagram post published on the night of November 16th, Snoop announced his decision to quit smoking.

After much thought & discussions with my family, I've decided to quit smoking. Please respect my privacy during this time - the rapper shared in his post.

While many are taken aback by the aforementioned post, others question its authenticity. There is speculation that it could be a marketing stunt, or if not, whether Snoop Dogg will adhere to his decision. Regardless, the statement set social media abuzz - within two hours, it received over 1.3 million likes.

Hell has officially frozen over.
I find it hard to believe. This must be a promotional trick. Maybe he's endorsing a new smoking device with a "Quit Smoking" slogan, and he'll be the representative. It could even be a Super Bowl ad.
It's akin to the Pope denouncing Catholicism.
It's as unreal as if Forrest Gump suddenly ceased running, turned around, and returned home.
