Editorial Reviews

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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Comedic contribution to a serious movement. June 26, 2008
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
While there aren't many stand-up comedians that I find to be terribly funny, Doug Benson's experiment with getting high for a month straight provided many chuckles. More importantly, it provided insight on the movement to expand Medical Marijuana in California and the DEA repression they face. This film could've easily become a documentary on the Medical Marijuana movement, and hopefully some filmmakers will make a movie that focuses on that struggle.
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars High Times Indeed January 2, 2009
This documentary was far more entertaining than it was educational. It really didn't focus too much on the history of marijuana usage and didn't analyze the prospects of future legalization (they're dim). But being a non-Californian I really had no idea of what some of the medical dispensaries looked like before watching this video. From what I saw what's going on there is pretty intriguing. Further, one of the reasons we should treasure federalism is because of situations like the one highlighted here (in the film) where the DEA overrides the local civic authorities and starts busting up shops. Those scenes were a disgrace. I hope people see this film and realize the necessity of decreasing the size of the federal government in the hopes of preserving all of our liberties. Politics aside, Benson's a funny comedian and a lot of the standup shtick was enjoyable.

3.0 out of 5 stars Could have been better.... August 12, 2008
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Let me start by saying that I am a proponent of both decriminalization and legalization (with regulations) so this review is not of the topic but the way it was presented. My review is basically that the topic was solid but Doug didn't follow it through. It's like writting a thesis paper and having a strong introduction and not enough information in the body of the paper. He could have done a lot more simply by giving more facts about marijuana and it's use. I expected something more like Super Size Me meets Grass, and sadly this isn't that movie.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not Your Average "Stoner" Movie. June 29, 2008
It would be too easy to just write off "Super High Me" as a stoner flick, for this documentary is both hilarious , poignant, and has some serious political undertones.

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.

"High"-ly recommended!

And now a review for all the stoners who glazed over the review above:

"Super High Me" am excellent...dude!

4.0 out of 5 stars interesting, funny and insightful October 11, 2009
"Super High Me" portrays standup comedian Doug Benson's experiment to see what would happen to him if he, a regular smoker of marijuana, went 30 days without smoking it and then go on a continuous binge of marijuana smoking for the next thirty days. Benson makes it no secret that he was at least in part inspired to do this by Morgan Spurlock's "Super Size Me' in which Spurlock discovers that the effects of 30 days of fast food aren't exactly all that great--it's unhealthy for you. Benson wants to learn if 30 days of abstinence immediately followed by 30 days of marijuana "immersion" would have any effects on his mind and body. Doug also knows that the effects of smoking marijuana can be distinctly different for different people. Some tolerate it well and others don't. Doug will try to continue his work as a standup comedian while he goes through the entire two month experiment. All in all, Doug's trial remains really interesting; I never felt bored or itchy for the movie to end. It all flows well and the cinematography is terrific. We get brief comments from other comedians who know Doug, too.

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.
