Don’t worry everyone, Snoop Dogg confirmed that he hasn’t given up smoking weed after all.

The Drop It Like It’s Hot rapper’s love for cannabis has been well documented over the years, and he even has his own range of edibles and products.

However, the 52-year-old, real name Calvin Broadus Jr, sent us all into meltdown last week when he dropped a huge bombshell, announcing that he would no longer be partaking.

Many voiced their concern when he posted a black and white photo of himself on social media, with the message: ‘After much consideration with my family, I’ve decided to give up smoke.

‘Please respect my privacy at this time.’

Thankfully, the whole thing appears to have been a huge stunt for Solo Stove, to promote the brand’s smokeless fire pits.

Taking to Twitter, Snoop shared a solemn video, telling fans: ‘I have an announcement. I’m giving up smoke.

‘I know what you thinking, “Snoop, smoke is kinda your whole thing.” But I’m done with it. Done with the coughing and my clothes smelling all stinky.

‘I’m going smokeless. Solo Stove fix fire. They took out the smoke. Clever.’

We see what you did there, Snoop…

Fans were living for the update and heaped praise on the marketing in the comments below.

‘He still smoking the world’s not gonna fall outta orbit just yet,’ a follower praised.

Another agreed: ‘I thought unc was sick or something. I’m glad it’s yet another business venture [sic].’

One cheered: ‘Amazing stunt. Also the product is legit cool too.’

‘That’s a 10/10 marketing move right there,’ a Twitter user posted.

As a commenter added: ‘I knew Snoop Dogg wasn’t done smoking lol He high as Giraffe in this video [sic].’

It’s no secret that the Grammy-nominee is fond of weed, and even has a professional blunt roller on his payroll – who got a pay rise recently, thanks to inflation.

But he did reveal that he had taken steps to reduce his daily intake after his family voiced their concerns.

‘Being a grandfather has changed me in multiple ways,’ he told the Daily Mail. ‘The main way is being concerned with how I live, how I move, the kind of people I’m associated with, because I want to see my grandkids grow old.

‘The only way I can do that is to take precautionary steps as far as how I move, who I hang out with, where I go out, my intake, what am I intaking? Am I doing extra-curricular or am I just doing what I’m supposed to be doing?’
