It seems some Hollywood medical marijuana patients may be a little out of date when it comes to current events in politics. Recently the Jimmy Kimmel Show went to a dispensary in Hollywood to question passerby MMJ patients on current events. With all fairness to the people questioned, the video is meant to make ‘stoners look like stoners’ and they were asked questions that I bet more than 1/2 the non-smoking population couldn’t answer either.
Kimmel started out the segment by prefacing that businesses in the marijuana industry are starting to actively lobby in the political process. This a huge step in recognition from a prime time, mainstream television show, with even bigger reach on Youtube. Although most of the coverage value is hidden behind a stereotypical portrayal of marijuana users, it’s crucial to gain this type of wide reaching media coverage for the industry to continue to move forward.
