Whoopi Goldberg Stoned In 1992?
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

Let's take a trip down memory Lane. It is 1991, the scene, the 63rd Annual Oscars. There are many big stars there among the crowd. One of them is the famous Whoopi Goldberg. She has been nominated for her role in the movie PageMaster.

She goes up on stage to accept her award for "best supporting actress". For her speech she appears to be slightly nervous and rambles on about thanking absolutely everyone. I mean everyone! It seemed simple enough, accept your award, give a speech & go sit back down. And that was all that it was. Until now.

Well, now almost 20 years later a previously unseen video has now surfaced. In the video Whoopi admits that she was actually high when accepting the award. To some this may come as a surprise, but I say, does it really matter?

Here is what Whoopi had to say about the recent release of the video. “My mother called and she said, ‘You smoked didn’t you?’ ” Whoopi recalled from the clip. “I know you’re not supposed to admit that you smoked pot, but because I do it doesn’t mean you should.”

“Smoking cigarettes or pot every now & then are my habits. And thought, ‘I have got to relax.’ So I smoked a joint of my homegrown,” the video reveals.

So, here are my thoughts on this news story about Whoopi Goldberg. Apparently, people find that odd that she may have smoked a joint or two every once and a while. What's really interesting about this story is that the act took place all the way back in 1991. My opinion is so what. So what if she likes to calm her nerves before a huge event. Big deal, at least she wasn't out drinking and driving, chasing people down like some of the other celebrities have in the past. When it comes to celebrity scandals or mess ups this is fairly mild incident.

My preference when it comes to smoking is; I don't personally like it, I also wouldn't deny anybody their right to do what they wanted to. Some people smoke weed, some drink & some are just simply high on life.

There is footage of both the acceptance speech and the interview where she admits to smoking is you want to check it out.

Bottom line is she is a phenomenal actress. She has acting in many great movies and does extremely well co-hosting on The View.
