Super High Me review

Ricky Williams’s new favorite movie, this is a take-off of Super Size Me, but insert marijuana for McDonalds and add alot of comedy. Standup comedian Doug Benson, a self-proclaimed stoner, undergoes a 30-on/30-off campaign with a group of doctors, therapists, and psychics trying to gauge the effects. He goes on tour about the same time and needless to say he’s a very funny showman. When he’s back home you get a feel of what its like inside the elite LA comedy circle. The legal issues were interesting and especially revelatory were connections to the AIDS epidemic. The movie feels too long in places, and it does seem to popularize weed, which I feel at times is a gateway to more life-destructive “highs”, but this was funny and enlightening.  Rating: 7/10
