Getting Doug With High's Doug Benson Talks About His Weirdest Cannabis Moments

Ever wonder what it's like getting Doug with high— er, we mean, getting high with cannabis activist and comedian Doug Benson? This was certainly one of our high points at the Emerald Cup, a cannabis competition-meets conference-meets music festival of 15,000 people in Santa Rosa, California. Over an indica, Benson dishes on his weirdest moments with cannabis, from getting into smoking the plant as a comedian in his 20s to smoking out of a bong made out of a plastic oil can. With decades of experience in cannabis culture, Benson's penchant for cannabis is more than just for fun — it's part of a movement normalizing the plant as states across the country push for marijuana law reform. And getting high with Doug is part of that, pushing cannabis into the mainstream pop culture.

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.
