I came across the image below on a Reddit thread earlier today. And as I did find it pretty funny, the topic of the thread itself brought up an interesting question: Being that the Mythbusters have done several experiments involving alcohol — and now that weed is becoming legalized in many areas — why not a Mythbusters marijuana episode? It could both educate people who abhor the plant to its benefits, and maybe even reveal some downsides or heartbreaking truths to those who are avid users. I’m betting you guys don’t drive better while stoned.
Okay, well maybe this won’t happen any time in the near future, but I bet it’s not that far off. I am not a user, but I support the legalization and I think it would make for some entertaining TV. And now, with the country becoming increasingly lenient with its laws regarding the sticky icky, I am sure more and more cable networks are going to be willing to cash in on the cash crop’s newly acquired social acceptance.
Jamie and Adam, go forth, get this on to the execs, and let’s get this Mythbusters – Marijuana Myths Episode thing happening! Godspeed!
