Whoopi Goldberg's days on The View may be numbered if ABC execs truly disapprove of her new medical marijuana business venture. For those who missed it, Whoopi Goldberg announced last week that she would be launching a new weed product line for women battling with monthly menstrual discomfort.

According to Entrepreneur, Whoopi Goldberg issued a press release with details about the new marijuana startup, its purpose, and how she believes medical weed could be beneficial for women's health. The View moderator is reportedly working on this joint venture with her co-founder Maya Elisabeth, who has been operating the medical marijuana company Om Edibles since 2008.

During an interview with USA Today, Whoopi Goldberg made it clear that she is quite dedicated to making the marijuana venture a long-term success. "I want to go nice and slow with this. I don't want this to be a joke to people. It's not a joke to women," Goldberg said.

The Whoopi & Maya product line, they have affectionately coined the "menstrual survival kit," currently consists of four different cannabis-infused products comprised of "edibles, tinctures or liquid extracts, rubs and a bath soak," according to CNN Money.

"The View is very strict about their talent not discussing their personal use of marijuana," the insider explains. "Her contract is up in August, and it could be time for them to cut Whoopi loose."
