Earlier this morning, Tina Brown tweeted a link to David Brooks’ New York Times piece declaring that smoking weed is bad. The article rehashes (pun totally intended, bruh!) the same old anti-pot arguments and ignores the fact that imprisoning people for smoking weed is — at the very least — ridiculous.
Brown thought Brooks’ article was “too polite,” so she added her own take on pot:
…legal weed contributes to us being a fatter, dumber, sleepier nation even less able to compete with the Chinese

Here are some other things that make people fatter and/or dumber: Fast food, alcohol and news magazines that pander to racists in order to sell copies. Just, you know, some things to consider.
