Whoopi Goldberg loves her vape pen: “her ability to help me live comfortably with glaucoma makes her one of the more important figures in my day to day,” the actor and TV host writes in The Cannabist, the Denver Post’s weed-focused breakout site. “What kind of kush is in my vape pen at the moment?” she writes. “The indica-dominant Platinum OG, of course.”

Goldberg will write a column about every two months, Post owner Digital First Media says in a press release. In the release, Cannabist Editor Ricardo Baca says he and Goldberg “instantly connected” when he appeared on “The View.” Goldberg’s “curiosity and desire to discuss the issues surrounding America’s ever-changing marijuana laws immediately reminded me of my colleagues back in Denver,” Baca says.

Baca on Monday teased a new celebrity columnist. Goldberg was among nine other “possible candidates” he wrote might be a good fit, including Michelle Malkin, Miley Cyrus and Sanjay Gupta.
