News that will surprise more than one person. The famous American rapper Snoop Dogg, known to be a big user of cannabis, announced he was quitting smoking on social networks this Thursday.
“After much consideration and discussion with my family, I have decided to quit smoking. Please respect my privacy at this time,” he posted on his Instagram and X accounts.
The legendary nonchalant artist, aged 52, did not specify whether by this he meant quitting only tobacco, cannabis or both.

More seriously, other fans worry about possible health problems for the star or congratulate him on his future sobriety. Contacted by AFP, his manager did not immediately respond.
