It's time for another installment of Pot Psychology, the "advice column" in which everyone's problems are solved with an "herbal" remedy. (Remember, kids: Don't do drugs!) In this episode, Rich and I got help from our pal Sasha Frere-Jones again, to tackle problems like leaky vaginas, syphilis, and boyfriends who drool during oral sex. Got a burning question? Send it to email@example.com. (Please keep them short; they're verrrry hard to read when stoned.)
Fiddling with the format is a good way to evolve the feature. Having said that, Ms. Machine and Rich are familiar with each other, as the result of a long-standing friendship, and that is charming— but folks cannot help but be a bit more inhibited with a third party in the room, particularly one they admire.
