Sunday Matinee pick this week is a throwback. In 2004 you couldn’t escape hearing about the documentary Super Size Me which followed film maker Morgan Spurlock, for a 30-day period during which he ate only McDonald’s food.
In 2008 Comedian Doug Benson took this idea and proclaimed “Super Size Me with cannabis instead of McDonald’s”.
Super High Me documents Benson avoiding cannabis for a cleansing period and then smoking and otherwise consuming cannabis every day for 30 days in a row. The film also includes interviews with marijuana activists, dispensary owners, politicians and patients who are part of the medical cannabis movement.
Doug Benson has grown in notoriety and accomplished plenty since the release of this documentary. One of my favorites being his YouTube show “Getting Dough With High” which if you haven’t checked out yet, be sure to hit the link
