The editor of the New York Times’s editorial, Andy Rosenthal, took some time from his day on Tuesday to respond to a question on Reddit from rapper, Snoop Dogg, about smoking marijuana in the morning.
Rosenthal, who was participating in an “Ask Me Anything” chat on the site, said he was cool with it.
Rosenthal said “wake n bake” was “absolutely” fine by him. However, the editor advised him not to engage in the practice at the Times’ building in Manhattan. Said Rosenthal:
“Absolutely nothing is wrong with it. Please, come visit the Times editorial board soon, but we have a no-smoking building.”
The Reddit appearance comes as the Times is aggressively promoting its recent editorial endorsing the legalization of recreational marijuana use.
