Whoopi Goldberg — an admitted medical marijuana user who smokes from a vaporizing pen to relieve the pain of glaucoma — is going to be putting her pot knowledge to good use, taking on regular columnist duties for The Denver Post as its cannabis expert.

Her first column, including the pros of smoking from a “tape pen,” made its debt on Thursday, the New York Post reported.

In it, she explained how marijuana actually helps with the pressure and pain of glaucoma and that using a vaporizing pen — rather than rolling a joint or breathing from a bong — gives her better control over dosages. She can breathe in the smoke in small sips and avoid getting too high, she explains, the New York Post reported.

Ms. Goldberg also said that she tries to be discreet with her marijuana vaporizing pen if she’s in an area where the drug — even for medicinal uses — is illegal.
