TROLL STOCK PHOTOS

For April 20, the Drug Policy Alliance released a cache of stock photos so that media outlets might more fairly and accurately depict marijuana use. Which is great, because if you need a news story to tell you about 4/20, you probably also think that marijuana is exclusively used by 22-year-old boys, and not by pretty much everyone for all reasons. Plus, the titles for these images will make you feel like you are on dat stanky wanky chronic: “Older female vaping marijuana and knitting” and “Younger asian female ingesting a marijuana tincture” to name a few.

TROLLS IN TOWERS

The new Comcast building promises to be amazing. I especially love the mock-up of a high-rise observation/gala deck where rich people will finally be able to check metaphor at the ground level and actually look down on everyone, everywhere. Via the Guardian.
