Tina Brown Doesn’t Like Pot

Screen Shot 2014-01-03 at 9.59.01 AMEarlier this morning, Tina Brown tweeted a link to David Brooks’ New York Times piece declaring that smoking weed is bad.

Brown thought Brooks’ article was “too polite,” so she added her own take on pot:

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.
