Regarding Al Kamen's Jan. 18 column " 'Reefer Madness' for the YouTube

This article is consistent with my hypothesis that the rules of
professional conduct of journalists or some style manual require that
articles about drug policy include a joke about chips, brownies or
junk food. Can reporters and editors be so humor-deprived that they
always have to joke about laws and policies that every year put
hundreds of thousands of cannabis users in handcuffs, give them a
criminal record and cost hundreds of millions of dollars on pointless
police overtime. Ha, ha, ha, "pass the chips"; I'm dying with laughter.
