Last weekend, famous stoner celebrities Seth Rogen and Wiz Khalifa both announced that they would be producing new shows on Snoop Dogg’s cannabis themed lifestyle network Merry Jane. This should be exciting news for those of us who are already fans of the shows on the network. I know I’m stoked to check them out.
Seth Rogen’s show will be called Talking Buds and will consist of him humanizing “various strains of cannabis, giving each a personality to creatively explain the effects of the strain when consumed.” So that sounds like it has a lot of potential to be both entertaining and educational. It sounds sort of like Sausage Party but for weed. I was really high when I watched that movie and I don’t really remember it, but I seem to remember that it made me giggle a few times.
Wiz Khalifa’s show has yet to be named, but he promises us that it will contain elements of both Jackass and American Ninja Warrior, and of course, cannabis. One can imagine that this means a show featuring Khalifa and various guests either doing insane stunts after getting high, or doing insane stunts while getting high.
Seth Rogen and Wiz Khalifa are just the latest people to join the platform. Boxer Floyd Mayweather did an interview prior to his match with Connor McGregor. There will also be a show focusing on women called “Queens of the Stoned Age. The co-founder of Merry Jane, Ted Chung has expressed the hope that more and more artists, musicians and comedians will come aboard, using their art to spread the message of cannabis. Chung had this to say:
Our goal is to change cultural and social perceptions of cannabis, and this nomination shows that we are doing exactly that. … Merry Jane has reached hundreds of millions of people across the globe, bringing cannabis related content to a mainstream audience. By showcasing the realities of modern culture through insightful and engaging programming, Merry Jane will continue to lead the fight to remove stigmas around cannabis and push for full legalization.
I can’t wait to check out these new shows! Hopefully they won’t be disappointments like the last new weed-themed show I watched.
