Re: “State attorneys general pressure clothing maker to drop t-shirts with drug names” above.

Suggested new T-shirt message:

This is your brain.
This is free speech.
This is your brain on free speech.

Hi! I’m Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi.
And I’m Maine Attorney General Janet Mills.
And I’m Kentucky Attorney General Jack Conway.
We endorse this message.
