George Zimmer, the founder of Men’s Wearhouse who guarantees “you’re gonna like the way you look,” announced that he’s been recreationally smoking pot for the past half century — oh, and did he mention he’s a highly successful multi-millionaire?

A new study of almost 4,000 Connecticut high school students showed that roughly 27.9% of them use e-cigs. Of the e-cig users, about 19% of those say they have used their e-cig apparatus for some sort of cannabis consumption.
