Is Vaping Lame? Sonic Youth's Thurston Moore Weighs In

Few things rile up tobacco enthusiasts and cannabis connoisseurs alike quite like vaping. Some praise the vaporizer as a healthier alternative to smoking, while others viscerally hate vapes like any other vapid trend. So Pitchfork recently asked Thurston Moore of Sonic Youth to weigh in on the issue.

"Vaping blows," he said in an instalment of the video series Over/Under. "The only people who can successfully vape are French people."

So if Sonic Youth ever does a reunion tour, you should leave the vape at home - or wear a beret to avoid getting called out by Moore.

The noise rock icon also critiqued Harry Styles, techno and a marshmallowy treat called Thurston S'mores. Check it out.


On Flatbush Avenue, tucked amidst the nexus of four iconic Brooklyn neighborhoods (Park Slope, Boerum Hill, Fort Greene, and Prospect Heights), medical cannabis company Citiva opened up their newest location at the turn of the new year. Walking through the shiny glass door, you’re first struck by the sleek tidiness of the front lobby. Both the dispensary's resident pharmacist and receptionist greet visitors as they clear patients (as does any medical dispensary in the country) before allowing them through to the retail room.

Can we see some ID please?
