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.
