About Super High Me
Determined to find out the true effects of marijuana on the human body, stand-up comedian and former Stoner of the Year Doug Benson documents his experience avoiding pot for 30 days and then consuming massive amounts of the drug for 30 days. More than just an amusing story of one man’s quest to get super high, this documentary also examines the hotly contested debate over medical marijuana use. Although the film is inspired by a joke which was inspired by Super Size Me, don’t expect to see the same dramatic reactions. Morgan Spurlock’s documentary about the dangers of excessive unhealthy eating was shockingly unhealthy for the filmmaker.During the thirty days of only eating McDonalds Spurlock vomits, is drained of energy, and ultimately puts his own life in danger. This seems obvious, but the effects of such blatant abuse to his body there was extreme medical proof of the damage he had done to his body, and yet people continue to make fast-food a success in our increasingly obese nation.In Spurlock’s television show, 30 Days, one episode features a mother binge drinking for thirty-days, which also shows obviously negative heath risks. From the image that marijuana has been given ever since a slightly suspicious ban in the 1930s, you might expect similar dramatic results when comedian Doug Benson decides to be stoned all day, every day, for thirty days.
