Other celebrities who have followed in Snoop’s footsteps
In addition to Snoop Dogg, other artists have commented that they have stopped using. In 2020, singer Miley Cyrus said that she had stopped consuming alcoholic beverages and drugs such as marijuana. She said she initially went to undergo surgery on her vocal cords, although she later pondered the benefits of continuing with a more sober life.
That same year, Willow Smith, daughter of Will Smith and Jada Pinkett, said she had quit smoking, which helped her reduce her anxiety.
Before them it had been the British Ed Sheeran who in 2019 revealed to The Daily Star newspaper that he had stopped smoking marijuana. According to the artist, the drug was hindering his creativity.
