Benson's 30 days of smoking and eating herb was inspired by the 30 miserable days Morgan Spurlock spent eating fast food in Super Size Me (another film I'd highly recommend).
I especially enjoyed Benson's visits to places like the "420 Temple", and a trip he made to Vancouver to visit the "Prince of Pot" - Marc Emery. Emery is a former seed distributor and the editor of the excellent "Cannabis Culture" magazine (which isn't available through Amazon, but can be found at most bookstores).
"Super High Me" also introduces us to some Medical Marijuana patients, including a young woman who first started using it at the age of 17 when she was going through her cancer treatments. It's a crime that cannabis isn't legally available to anyone who wants it for medicinal, spiritual, or recreational reasons. Pot is forbidden because big pharmaceutical companies don't have a patent on it.

Doug Benson is a stand-up comedian from Los Angeles best known for his work in "The Marijuanalogues" and VH1's "Best Week Ever". In this documentary, he spoofs the concept first introduced in Morgan Spurlock's "Super Size Me", by going without marijuana for 30 days, and then smoking marijuana for 30 days.
The most surprising aspect of this film are the two scenes in which DEA agents raid dispenaries in California. California, for those who don't know, allows marijuana to be distributed legally if you have a special card from a certified doctor. For all of the hoopla over State's Rights in the Terri Schavo case, I found it very alarming to watch the Federal Government ignore Californian's State's Rights.
Led by a killer soundtrack, and Doug Benson's wicked humor and amiable personality, "Super High Me" is a great, great film.
And now a review for all the stoners who glazed over the review above:
"Super High Me" am excellent...dude!
Predictably, it was tough for Doug to take himself off marijuana as he is a routine smoker; we see him driving down the street in his car and he not so jokingly states that everything reminds him of marijuana--even the green traffic lights at intersections! However, Doug does an admirable job of holding it all together and he doesn't cheat--he's committed to his experiment. Doug also takes a trial SAT; a test to see if he's a psychic and he meets with both a psychologist and his internist to get tested once while he's completely sober and another time when he's rather stoned indeed.Read more ›
