Cannabis enters the chaos vortex at Vice Media
Two employees hatched an idea for a 420 video that required a gargantuan amount of weed – they ended up being fired

A new report published by New York Magazine into the continuing chaos at Vice Media HQ includes possibly the Vice-iest of Vice Media tidbits.
According to the report, two employees who hatched an idea for a 420 video that required a gargantuan amount of weed ended up being fired.
The report reads that : “As part of Vice’s annual Weed Week around 4/20, a Vice producer came up with the idea to make a video in which Lil Yachty, the rapper, would try to set the Guinness World Record for rolling the world’s heaviest blunt. The idea was approved, but the amount of weed that was purchased and sent to the Vice office was enough to qualify them as a marijuana distributor. Two senior employees were fired as a result.”
The blunt, it would seem, never got rolled, and the world was deprived of what would have undoubtedly been an impressive smoke.
