Snoop Dogg is putting down the weed, or so we think? The veteran rap stoner released a statement saying he's giving up smoking, but some fans are skeptical.
Snoop Dogg Announces He's Giving Up Smoke
On Thursday (Nov. 16), Snoop Dogg shared on social media that he's giving up smoking. In his post, the West Coast rap icon shared a black-and-white image of himself with his hands in prayer with a message stating that he's quitting smoking.
"After much consideration & conversation with my family, I've decided to give up smoke," the statement reads. "Please respect my privacy at this time."
It's unclear if Snoop is giving up weed altogether or if he's going to instead enjoy cannabis in other non-smoking forms like edibles, gummies and other treats.

Reactions to Snoop Dogg's announcement have been mixed. Some fans are skeptical and feel that maybe after a brief period, the Doggfather will resume his smoking pastime. However, some people are supportive of Snoop's new journey of weed sobriety.
But some people think Snoop had a health scare and will be back to smoking after a brief rest.
"Must of had a health scare. Take a break for now and see if it helps," wrote one person on Instagram.
Meanwhile, on Twitter, some people are not buying it.
"Snoop said 'smoke' not weed. Watch him drop a line of edibles. I’m here for that," wrote one fan.
"Is Snoop giving up smoke like Jay-Z retiring?" tweeted one skeptical reader.
A third person wrote: "If Snoop Dogg doesn't post a video about it I'm not believing it, you can't quit smoke when you are smoke."
