Whoopi Goldberg Writes About How She Replaced Advil With Marijuana To Treat Illness

WHOOPI GOLDBERG WRITES ABOUTSMOKING MARIJUANA INSTEAD OF TAKING ADVIL TO DEAL WITH GLAUCOMA HEADACHES

(AllHipHop News) Whooppi Goldberg is one of the only people to have won a Grammy, Academy Award, Golden Globe, Emmy, Daytime Emmy and a Tony. You can now add marijuana columnist to her resume as Goldberg begun her writing gig at The Cannabist with a post on her love of medical marijuana.

Goldberg, whom suffers from glaucoma-induced headaches stated that she uses a vaporizer pen that she named "Sippy" to deal with her headaches. According to Goldberg, marijuana has worked better than the "man made things" she was taking before:

I used to take Advil by the handful for this very reason, and I don’t take Advil anymore — not for my eye. You’re not supposed to eat Advil every day, and I was eating them every day, these man-made things. But I can do this without hurting myself. 

Goldberg maintains that she uses marijuana for strictly medicinal purposes and is "certainly not looking for that high high." This is a mentality she developed over time as she revealed in 1992 that she smoked marijuana prior to her acceptance speech at the 1991 Oscars:

I learned a great lesson. Never smoke pot before there's a possibility of having to talk to a hundred million people.
