Watch Two Stoned Comedians Attempt to Explain How The Respiratory System Works

Remember how hard presenting those oral reports was back in high school? Well, imagine trying to do that while stoned.

This is more or less what two comedians did recently in a video called 'Stoned Science' for AsapSCIENCE, a new series that basically serves as a STEM-equivalent to Comedy Central’s 'Drunk History'.

In the clip, comedians Matt Rogers and Dave Mizzioni do their research, get high and attempt to explain the respiratory system. The video also boasts some impressive animation to humorously illustrate their points as they attempt to relate how we breathe.

So how do they do? Quite admirably, actually. They’re articulate, funny, and you might even learn a thing or two watching the video. Which, honestly, probably doesn’t bode well for the viability of the series moving forward—but it does give cannabis a good look.

Few other entrepreneurs in the cannabis space have their hands in quite as many ventures as Lorne Gertner. Currently dubbed the "godfather of the Canadian cannabis industry," Gertner told Civilized, "If we could live through normalization, we could change the world." Hailing from the fashion industry, this Toronto native says he's on a mission to "make the world a better place through cannabis and design excellence." The only catch is, well, normalizing cannabis — and that's where Gertner's keen eye for style comes in. "In the old days, you were going to be different or you were going to be normal," said Thom Antonio, Gertner's friend, creative director, and collaborator of 35 years.
