Whoopi Goldberg Shares Her Vape Pen Love Story In First Post As Weed Columnist

“I took a sip. It was beautiful. And my pen and I have been together ever since.”

This is the quote introducing Whoopi Goldberg’s ode to her vape pen. The View co-host expressed her love in her inaugural post as a columnist for The Cannabist, the Denver Post’s spin-off dedicated weed site.

“The vape pen has changed my life,” she wrote. “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.”

Don’t get confused, though. The entry wasn’t encouragement for the masses to blow down trees in any form they come in and at any time. Goldberg battles with glaucoma, and the controlled marijuana doses help ease some of the pains that come with the territory.

“These glaucoma-induced headaches come on like freight trains — like, BOOM,” she wrote. “My head starts hurting, my eyes start bugging, my whole body starts to tense up. But then I find her, and it relaxes everything and calms everything. It helps my head stop hurting, and with glaucoma your eyes ache, and she takes the ache out. It’s wonderful.”
