Scott Pruitt dislikes the EPA logo because he thinks it looks like a marijuana leaf


Maybe you can see it better than we can.

According to the New York Times, Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Scott Pruitt isn’t happy with the organization’s seal, which has been in place for nearly 50 years.

The reason: He thinks it looks like a marijuana leaf. 

It features a flower bloom representing all the elements of the environment, coupled with four leaves. It was produced for no charge by an ad agency in 1971 and was illustrated by Ken Bloomhorst, who died in January.

It’s wild that Scott Pruitt thinks the @EPA seal looks like a “marijuana leaf,” because it’s clearly the fire flower from Super Mario Bros
