Paris Jackson - daughter of the late King of Pop - slammed cannabis critics on Twitter yesterday after receiving backlash for a marijuana-themed tweet.
To toke or not to toke. That was the question that Jackson - joint in mouth - posed to her followers in a joke tweet. She emphasized the silliness of the question by using a filter that gave her flaming devil horns, a satanic goatee and a diabolical set of aviator sunglasses.
Some followers didn't take kindly to the joke. Jackson's feed was soon inundated with tweets criticizing her as a poor role model. But instead of backing down, Jackson used the opportunity to promote a positive image of today's cannabis consumer.
One critic wrote "what parent thinks its okay for their kid to smoke weed? Girl, you're better than this & you know it. #accountability." So Jackson fired off this double-barrelled response:
i know of a few parents that actually rely on this amazing organic medicine to keep their children alive since the alternative pharmaceutical drugs that doctors were shoving down their throats was basically killing the poor little ones 🤷🏼♀️ but hey, to each his own.— Paris-Michael K.

If only the Scooby gang could unmask everyone stoking the 'reefer madness' rhetoric that flooded Jackson's feed.
