In her debut column for The Cannabist, a Colorado-based marijuana enthusiasts’ portal, actress–comedienne Whoopi Goldberg penned a love letter to her vape pen.
First of all, you’re probably asking, Whoopi, what’s a vape pen?
A vape pen, or vaporizer pen, is a pen-sized device that “vaporizes the active ingredients of plant material, commonly cannabis or tobacco.” So there you have it.
Anyway, why is Whoopi Goldberg writing for The Cannabist? Besides “extolling the virtues” of her vaporizer pen, Goldberg hopes to draw even more attention to the states that have officially legalized medical marijuana, and how it the substance changed her life.
The full blog post, which you should read, details how Goldberg, who suffers from glaucoma and glaucoma-related headaches, experienced life differently after her daughter gifted her with “Sippy.”
“I took a sip,” she writes. “It was beautiful. And my pen and I have been together ever since.”
