Recording information: The San Francisco Punch Line (04/20/2009).
Editor: Ian Stearns.
Taking the spirit of Cheech & Chong into the age of irony, comedian Doug Benson is the closest thing to a professional stoner. From his off-Broadway co-creation The Marijuana-Logues to his docu-parody film SUPER HIGH ME, Benson wears his Stoner of the Year for 2006 award with pride. His debut album for the Comedy Central label should really come in a blunt rap because UNBALANCED LOAD is fat with pot humor. Head shop regulars will find this a smoker's delight as Benson recounts the 30 stoned days of filming SUPER HIGH ME -- plus the expected bootlegging onto video-sharing sights -- along with the 13 states where medical marijuana is legal in 2009 ("The rest of the states are dead to me").
