'Comedians In Cars Smoking Cannabis' Sounds Like More Fun, Doesn't It?

First, a spoiler alert: they do not actually hotbox the van in Michael Stusser's new web series, Comedians In Cars Smoking Cannabis - a parody, you might have already guessed, of Jerry Seinfeld's Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee.

In the first episode, Stusser - a journalist and filmmaker who wrote the award-winning Sleeping With Siri - takes comedian Lauren Weedman (The Daily Show, HBO's Hung and Looking, Curb Your Enthusiasm) on a ride in a 1965 VW Bus. Afterwards, they get high - legally of course, because they're in Washington State.

The new web series is part of Stusser's Higher Ground, a production platform that includes a satirical-news program (think The Daily Show meets High Times), and a syndicated column on the legalization movement.

"We're really trying to elevate the dialogue about cannabis," says Stusser. "And we're using humor and social media to not only normalize the use of marijuana - but put it in context. People like weed - and they've been smoking it forever; time to make it legal."

Latest.

A recent study found that medical marijuana legalization was associated with a reduction in workplace fatalities. While many marijuana opponents would argue that legalizing cannabis is only going to lead to more workplace injuries, a new study says that simply isn't the case. In fact, legalizing medical marijuana could actually make workplaces safer.
