We knew that Oprah dabbled with marijuana at one point, but now her best pal and “CBS This Morning” co-anchor Gayle King has confirmed the suspicions. During an interview on “The Ellen Show” earlier this week, King discussed how she’s never personally indulged in marijuana, though her best friend Oprah can’t say the same.
“Oprah has also smoked a little marijuana, too. I don’t mind saying that,” she said. “I’m not telling tales out of school.”

However, when Ellen pressed her on the matter, King didn’t elaborate. “I refuse to answer on the grounds that it may incriminate her . . . It’s not something that happens on a regular—I’m going to change the subject,” she said.
Again, King didn’t exactly leak the Oprah-related scoop of the decade. Cannabis is legalized for recreational usage in California, where Oprah lives. She previously revealed to David Letterman in 2015 that she hasn’t smoked in 30 years, though her munchies of choice were a “sleeve of Oreos.”
Andy Cohen also pressed the media mogul about her cannabis usage during an appearance on his show. Oprah repeated what she told Letterman—she last smoked in 1982—though she may have hinted at her true hand when she told Cohen, “I hear it’s gotten better!”
