When The New York Times Editorial Board editors held an Ask Me Anything session of Reddit Tuesday, they likely did not expect to receive a question from rapper Snoop Dogg. But given the paper’s recent decision to come out in favor of federal marijuana legalization, perhaps they should not have been surprised.
Snoop Dogg (AKA Snoop Lion), who held his own AMA last year under the username Here_Comes_The_King, decided to chime in and ask the editors, “whats wrong wit a lil wake n bake??” He received a quick, and possibly disappointing response from Andrew Rosenthal.
See a screenshot of the exchange below:
“The issue of drug testing is a matter of corporate policy, and I don’t make corporate policy, and neither does anyone else in the editorial department,” Rosenthal responded. “I was asked about this the other day by Chris Hayes and I said that if they asked me, I would say we should stop testing for marijuana use, but that I’m not all that sure I will be asked.”
