Is it reasonable to divorce Brad Pitt for being a pothead?

Published

on

As if 2016 wasn’t bad enough, news of Angelina Jolie’s pending divorce from husband Brad Pitt may just be the worst development of this dumpster fire of a year.

TMZ reported Tuesday that Jolie filed for divorce from Pitt, citing irreconcilable differences. But sources tell the tabloid the trigger for Jolie was Pitt’s substance abuse, including his dependence on alcohol and pot. The actress-slash-humanitarian is apparently “fed up” with Pitt’s drug use and believes he has “an anger problem” that impacts their six children.

Jolie’s attorney Robert Offer said Jolie made the decision “for the health of the family.” She is asking for physical custody of the kids and urging the judge to give Pitt visitation rights without physical custody. She is not asking for financial support from Pitt.

Pitt’s fondness for ganja is well documented. In a 2009 appearance on Bill Maher’s show, Pitt enthused over rolling the perfect joint; two years later, the Hollywood hunk told Parade he spent the majority of his marriage to ex-wife Jennifer Aniston “sitting on a couch, holding a joint, hiding out.” Aniston herself had previously told Rolling Stone that she enjoys smoking pot “once in a while.”

Pitt told the New York Post in 2015 that he kicked his pot-smoking habit after he became a father. “[Having kids] was the only thing that got me to quit. That was it. Done,” Pitt told the paper.

But if the reports are true, it looks like Pitt’s pot-smoking days reemerged as of late. Though, let’s be honest here: There are way worse things a celebrity could do than sit on a couch with a joint. Here’s hoping Pitt and Jolie are able to work out a mellow separation in the spirit of low-key stoners everywhere.

READ IT: House Judiciary Committee releases report defining Trump impeachable offenses

Published

on

On Saturday, the House Judiciary Committee released a report outlining the impeachable acts committed by President Donald Trump.

"Our President holds the ultimate public trust," said the report, titled "Constitutional Grounds for Presidential Impeachment," in its introduction. "A President faithful only to himself—who will sell out democracy and national security for his own personal advantage—is a danger to every American. Indeed, he threatens America itself."

The report clarifies the procedures for impeachment, analyzes whether president can be "impeached for abuse of executive powers," and "whether it is preferable to await the next election when a President has sought to corrupt that very same election."

Trump hammered by ex-intel officials for sucking up to the Saudis after Florida naval base shooting

Published

on

President Donald Trump is taking heat from former U.S. intelligence officials for taking a very soft tone with the Saudi government after Friday’s shooting at the Naval Air Station in Pensacola, Florida.

Not long after the shooter was identified as a second lieutenant in the Saudi Arabian military, the president tweeted out words of sympathy from the Saudi king after a phonecall, writing, "The King said that the Saudi people are greatly angered by the barbaric actions of the shooter, and that this person in no way shape or form represents the feelings of the Saudi people who love the American people."

Former right-wing presidential candidate scamming Americans with toxic bleach cure for cancer

Published

Former diplomat and Reagan adviser Alan Keyes is a well-known gadfly who has run multiple times for president and for Senate, most famously against future President Barack Obama in 2004.

But lately, according to The Daily Beast, he has been involved in a different pursuit: the promotion of a dangerous pseudoscience scam known as the "Miracle Mineral Solution," or MMS.

The substance, which is actually just the powerful bleach chlorine dioxide, is supposedly a cure for everything from viral infections to infertility, and there was even a cultlike church known as the Genesis II Church of Health and Healing, that promoted it as a gift from God. MMS has particularly taken root in developing countries like Uganda, but it also has a following in the United States, and many autistic children have been forced to drink it. Versions of this scam have even been promoted on Amazon.
