Whoopi Goldberg Claims Using Marijuana Changed Her Life

The outspoken comedian, actress, talk show host, and now marijuana-columnist Whoopi Goldberg has penned her first article for the newly launched marijuana-related website The Cannabist. And in said article, she claims that consuming THC via pen-style vaporizers has “changed” her life.


Whoopi says:

The vape pen has changed my life. No, I’m not exaggerating. In fact, her name is Sippy. Yes, she’s a she. And yes, I named her Sippy because I take tiny, little sips — sassy sips, even — from her. And with each sip comes relief — from pressure, pain, stress, discomfort. But I’m getting ahead of myself.

Whoopi says that after quitting cigarettes two years ago, she found it all but impossible to smoke a joint.

I had to “really try” because I was having a hard time with it. Suddenly I had virginal lungs, and I was feeling quite annoyed about it all.

After telling her daughter about her difficulty with the joint, she claims her daughter offered her an alternative that she thought her mom might be able to handle: a vaporizer.

Whoopi claims she found the large tabletop-style vaporizer to be too cumbersome and didn’t use it without her daughter there to assist her. But several weeks later her daughter offered yet another alternative to the table vape: a pen-style vaporizer.

Whoopi’s describes her experience with the vape pen:

I took a sip. It was beautiful. And my pen and I have been together ever since. I love my Sippy, it’s true. And now there are so many different kinds of vape pens — some with coils, some you have to clean out, some you don’t have to clean. I like the simple pens with cartridges of THC oil because, if you’re not a smoker or you can’t inhale deeply, it’s a wonderful way of ingesting cannabis.
