Whoopi Goldberg has never kept her love for weed a secret, but she is taking that love to new heights as she has recently become a columnist for The Cannabist.
The Cannabist is a news website for the Denver Post that focuses on legalizing recreational marijuana. Goldberg has joined the staff as a writer for a pro-marijuana column.
The 58-year-old EGOT winner’s first column was an ode to her vaporizer, which she uses to reduce the pain of glaucoma.
“My vape pen and I maintain a mostly private relationship. Sure, I’ll sometimes show my pen to a friend or share her with a close confidant. But mostly it’s just she and I working through my pain,” Goldberg writes. “And her ability to help me live comfortably with glaucoma makes her one of the more important figures in my day to day.”
Goldberg will write a column every two months, on a marijuana-related topic of her choice, reports The Wire.
“The high is different, too. It feels like a gentle, warm breeze at the beach. It’s like someone undoing a vise grip, very slowly,” she writes. “It’s not overpowering — and I’m certainly not looking for that high high. I’m looking for relief.”
