If this pair of singers have anything to apologize for, it’s filming a video in which they giggle about smoking weed in the first place. After all, it’s tough to normalize smoking marijuana if you’re going to brag about it as if it makes you a badass.
Consider this a call to global youth: it doesn’t. In fact, there’s something particularly obnoxious about bragging about getting high, as if millions of people aren’t already doing it pretty quietly.

And before you start flipping out about what adults do to relax, perhaps consider the benefits of chilling out yourself.
