Are you of legal age to consume cannabis related news?
LOS ANGELES -— Comedian and cannabis enthusiast Doug Benson took a surprise intermission during an online presentation of his stand-up show “The Benson Interruption” yesterday, in which comedians perform sets while Benson interjects and talks over their jokes, to take a quick smoke break. “Right after I started, he just said, ‘Hold on everybody, I forgot to go get high,’ and just moved slightly off camera,” said stand-up Andy Taliardi via Zoom. “I thought he was joking until I heard the lighter and saw the cloud waft in front of the camera. I’m like, did he forget he wasn’t at a club? Did he forget he’s already high, and he’s at home, so he doesn’t have to get high or go anywhere? I just sat there confused for my entire set — I didn’t even tell one joke.” Benson returned a minute later, saying, “Great stuff, Andy, see you next time,” and giggled as he introduced the next act.

Speaking of absurdity, did you know there are still over 40,000 people locked up on nonviolent cannabis-related charges around the US? It’s time to let them out.
