Richard Cohen Would Like Justin Bieber To Know That Reefer Madness Is Real, Man

News

There's been a lot of Justin Bieber news: the drag-racing arrest, the police raid that found drugs, the arrest for assaulting a limo driver, and his private plane pilots wearing masks because of all the dank fumage. Through all this, WaPo's Richard Cohen has not shared his feelings. Finally, today he has. O Glorious Day.


While the rest of the world is saying "wait, why do I care what some aging lover of sexual harassment who only just learned that slavery was bad thinks about this era's Bobby Vinton?" Richard Cohen has been standing in front of a mirror, stroking his beard and his penis simultaneously, whispering "they want you, baby. They want to hear from you. Everybody does. Tell it like it is, Richard Cohen. Speak truth to power about Justin Bieber." OK, we weren't really there watching that, because ewww, but honestly, it is the only explanation for this column.

On the off chance that he is not already a subscriber, I urge Justin Beiber to take a look at the current issue of the New York Review of Books. There, in addition to an article about his fellow musician, Johann Sebastian Bach, is one about marijuana. It was written by the eminent Jerome Groopman of the Harvard Medical School who says, basically, that marijuana is not a benign drug. Smoke it at your own risk.

What bazillionaire 20-year-old whose fame rests upon having really insanely good teenage hair wouldn't respond to the clarion call of the New York Review of Books? Combine that with a Bach namecheck and some weed-shaming and the Biebs has probably already read the Review cover to cover three times yet today. Then Richard Cohen pivots -- brilliantly, of course, because that is the way of Richard Cohen -- to a series of haranguing statistics about weed that basically boils down to this: if you use a fuck ton of weed every day until you can't do anything else, or you get super fucking high and drive your car, these things are bad, mmmmkay? These are really not things that are in doubt, Richard Cohen, but they are also things utterly unrelated to casual weed use or medicinal weed use or Justin Bieber weed use. Perhaps Cohen would have made a bit more sense if he could have been arsed to go back and look at other things he wrote on the topic, but haha he is too lazy for that AND TELLS US SO.

The great journalists at the National Enquirer regularly sent advance digital copies of stories about Donald Trump and his political opponents to Michael Cohen, according to a story in the Washington Post, which cited "three people with knowledge of the matter" as sources. Probably Trump was one of them, you know how he is.

Times have been tough for those Trump supporters who are fine with his rampant bigotry but are discovering he's going to screw them like any number of non-wife-like women he totally swears he's never met.
