Sally Jenkins makes fun of pot smoking in her Washington Post column today.

As she should: Pot smoking is funny. Pot smoking a punch line in every movie or sitcom dealing with adolescence. On That ’70s Show, pot smoking is practically a character.

All Jenkins’ one-liners about pot smoking make the Post Magazine story about a SWAT team shooting up a house and killing dogs and terrorizing families over pot even tougher to absorb.

Michael Phelps‘ arrest will be good for America. That photo of him working a bong should hang in every judge’s chambers in the country.

Smoking pot is better used as a punch line than as a reason to put somebody in jail.
