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.

  1. The essential message is that this is still a recreational drug. He showed no evidence that people need it for medical purposes. He was fine without it for 30 days then hooked himself again for another 30 with no intention of stopping “We’re just getting started,” he claims.

  2. It didn’t affect him properly because he never inhales it, getting a mouth full and holding it in your mouth for a few seconds then blowing it out doesn’t get you stoned. 

  3. This Documentary is Hillarious, cant help but laugh its so true, and real to everyone who has tried marijuana.

  4. While I’d love to be able to watch the entire movie, I have yet to be able to. The video won’t buffer all of the way and won’t progress past the point of Mr. Benson’s first day on his 30 day “binge” when playing.

  5. very intelligent, yatti

  6. This makes me want to smoke so badly lol..
