The actress and "View" co-host will contribute to The Cannabist, a stand-alone website from the Colorado newspaper.

Whoopi Goldberg has now added "marijuana columnist" to her résumé. 

The actress and co-host of ABC's The View was added to The Denver Post's marijuana website The Cannabist as a bimonthly contributor. Her first column, titled "My vape pen and I, a love story," was published on Thursday. 

"As expected, Whoopi's column provides a direct and personal perspective on marijuana use in this very modern era. We're grateful that she is willing to add her voice to this conversation," said Ricardo Baca, editor of the site, in a statement. 

On The View, Goldberg has spoken about using marijuana.

At The Cannabist, she lauds smoking with a vaporizer: "I didn’t anticipate this first column to be such a love story, some sort of semi-romantic comedy. But it works, and it’s true, and so here we go. The vape pen has changed my life."

The Cannabist was founded in December 2013 by The Denver Post, which launched the marijuana news website to coincide with the legalization of the drug in Colorado.
