MICHEL MARTIN, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Michel Martin. One of the world's most famous stoners just announced he's giving up the ganja. Rapper Snoop Dogg posted on social media yesterday that after much consideration and conversation with my family, I've decided to give up smoke. The post has attracted tens of millions of views and many smoke-filled memes, some questioning whether Snoop is going sober or just switching to edibles. Sometimes you just have to drop a habit like it's hot.
