'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.

Lawmakers in Quebec failed to pass a bill that would have increased the minimum age for purchasing and consuming cannabis from 18 to 21 before the end of the legislative session. When the Coalition Avenir Québec (CAQ) was elected to power in Quebec last year, they brought with them a promise to raise the legal age for buying and consuming recreational cannabis. Right now, anyone 18 or older can legally purchase cannabis in Quebec, which is tied with Alberta for having the lowest legal age for recreational cannabis.
