Bad Dads We Love: Pothead Edition

Partly because I’m a bit hungover, this appeals to me: An expectant dad somewhere in western Pennsylvania—okay, Fayette County, wherever that is—lit up a joint in the hospital smoking room. To celebrate or something. As Sasha has started saying, “Oh my God!” Quoth the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review:

Uniontown police Sgt. Jonathan Grabiak said a Uniontown Hospital nurse noticed the distinctive odor of marijuana when she took a cigarette break in the facility’s designated smoking area early Tuesday morning. … Grabiak said both men had glassy eyes. One of the men admitted to smoking marijuana in the shed while awaiting the birth of his child.

“I’m having a baby and wanted to get a buzz,” the man told Grabiak.

Anyway, good for him. Cigars are disgusting, and getting drunk is inappropriate and leads to hangovers. Oh my god.

Alas, the paper declines to name said fellow, who we’d definitely interview if we could. Anyone got a lead? Or an Advil?

    Put on “Legalize It,” Google “marijuana during labor,” and prepare to have your mind blown.

    That said, the only thing that would have gotten me into more trouble than blazing during my wife’s labors would have been to arrange for a black girl to put some cake on another black girl’s ass and convince a third girl (of any race) to like it.
