We got one patient ready to come up.

Just step that way to the

dispense room.

How's it going?

Good, how you doing?

Welcome to the health center.

Thanks.

Nice to be here.

So, like, how would I even begin

to decide which kind to choose?

It depends on your level of

tolerance.

If you're a first-time patient,

you've never tried it before,

you might want to go with

something a little bit lighter.

It'll give you more of a body high.

Just a little something to give

you the feel of how it's gonna be.

The purples are more, like, if

you have problems sleeping and

back pains at night, you're real

uncomfortable -the purples

will put you to sleep.

The real strong, more potent ones.

They're the more potent ones.

So the 45 automates -those are

the ones that you know you're

gonna get the feeling of it.

I feel high just thinking

about all this.

I'm gonna bring out your next

comic now.

He's very funny.

He's been on VH1.

Let's give it up for

Mr. Doug Benson.

[Cheers and applause]

I saw that movie

"Super Size Me" when I was high.

Mistake!

That is fucked up, you know?

'Cause the premise of that movie

is that it's bad to eat a lot of

McDonald's, and I'm sitting

there all high, like, thinking,

"oh, I could go for a hot apple

or a frenchie at this point.

Hook me up, man."

And he's just gorging it all on

himself, and then throwing up,

and -ugh, it's disgusting,

that movie.

If that's a movie -if eating

McDonald's for 30 days is a

movie and people are willing to

pay to see it, I've got a movie.

I'm gonna smoke pot every day

for 30 days, try to remember to

film it, and my movie's gonna be

called "Super High Me" -or

"Business As Usual," I haven't

decided yet on the title.

So that started out as a joke in

my act, and then a filmmaker --

I'm using the term loosely --

saw me say that, and we had a

discussion, and we're really

fucking doing it.

Doug Benson -stand-up

comedian, noted pot smoker.

In fact, high times magazine

recently named Doug the

number-two pot comic in the

country, but that doesn't put

Doug Benson above the law.

So how can this be possible?

In 1996, the citizens of

California passed

proposition 215, which allows

patients to use cannabis for

medical purposes if they get a

recommendation from their doctor.

Common uses for medical cannabis

include chronic pain, HIV/AIDS,

depression, nausea, or a medical

condition your doctor thinks is

appropriate.

Keep in mind the effects of

marijuana vary with every user.

This is the story of just one

patient, and despite years of

marijuana use, even the

number-two pot comic in the

country has no idea what's going

to happen when he gets super high.

I'm not getting high every

day for 30 days yet because

there's a catch.

I have to not get high for 30

days before getting high for 30

days to show how awful it is

when I can't get high at all to

contrast with how awesome the

next 30 days are gonna be, so I

have to not smoke for 30 days,

and that's gonna start at the

beginning of August.

# Yeah #

[bell dings]

# Yo #

# I should be sleeping all the

way still #

# rolling with the beat and

this, that, them, there #

# couldn't help but stay up

and jot down some stuff #

so how do you feel first day?

So far, so good.

Boy, that hat made me want to

smoke pot.

Everything reminds me of pot now

that I can't have it.

Traffic lights...

[chuckles]

...when they're green.

[Bell dings]

I may be hospitalized, I think.

Really?

I think so.

Are you saying that to be

funny, or do you really believe that?

I really believe that.
