Vaping has become extremely popular over the last several years. The number of people doing it consistently increases and includes many top celebrities. Some of them are quite passionate about it and really desire to see more people joining in. It's becoming mainstream and as more celebrities talk about using it, the more popular it’s bound to become.
One way vaping has been entering the mainstream is through TV. For instance, not long ago, Laurence Fishburne was seen vaping as his character, FBI agent Jack Crawford, in the show Hannibal. On the show, his wife is using it (for her cancer) and he asks to try it out in order to, you know, “support his wife.”
Snoop Dogg is another celeb that is a big proponent of vaping. Pictures of him with his vape pen can be foind on the internet. As a matter of fact, Snoop has said that he doesn't leave home without his device and even brought one with him when he appeared on the late night talk show Conan to give as a gift to Conan O’Brien. He uses the dry herb and had plenty of jokes about what kind of herbs he likes to use in his vape pen. Snoop has since gotten into vaping as a business.
Finally, Whoopi Goldberg is another celebrity that has been pretty outspoken about her vape pen. She has even named her pen "Sippy". She has talked quite a bit about why she likes vaping so much. Whoopi has Glaucoma and uses herbs medicinally. For her, it relieves the pain of her Glaucoma-induced headaches that also cause her pain in her eyes. She finds vaping to be an easy, discreet way of taking this herb. With the pen, she's able to have more control over how much she uses. Whoopi recommends vaping for people who suffer physically from various illnesses including those who're going through chemo.
The reasons for why celebrities vape is as varied as the celebrities themselves. Just like the rest of the population, some, like Snoop Dogg, vape for pleasure and some, such as Whoopi Goldberg, vape for relief from pain and stress. Now you can start to see why from this angle how vaping is growing in popularity and will continue to do so as long as famous actors, rappers, and singers keep putting it out there and talking about its benefits.
