Super High Me documents Benson avoiding cannabis for a cleansing period and then smoking and otherwise consuming cannabis every day for 30 days in a row.  Benson says that Super High Me is “Super Size Me with cannabis instead of McDonalds”.  The film also includes interviews with marijuana activists, dispensary owners, politicians and patients who are part of the medical marijuana movement. The DVD was released on April 20, 2007.

Benson took various tests to gauge his physical and mental health both before 30 days of not smoking cannabis, and after doing so for 30 days straight. Benson’s physician concluded that the effects on Benson’s health from his use of cannabis were generally inconsequential. The greatest changes noted were in his weight (Benson gained eight pounds during his “high” month). His sperm count actually increased, contrary to the expectations of medical studies. His overall score on an SAT test increased (mostly verbal), although, it was mentioned that his mathematical skills were significantly reduced. The one effect that Benson was surprised at by the end of the smoking month was that he was sure that he would be sick of smoking cannabis for a continuous extended period and that he felt like he was going to need an extended break afterwards. He instead felt perfectly fine with his continued casual smoking with no apparent, acquired disdain of any kind. In the end credits, the movie was dedicated to Michelle Benjamin, a friend of the filmmakers’ who was killed in a traffic accident involving a drunk driver.

    I am about 55 minutes into this and while I believe that the media is controlled and is also a controller, both parties, Republicans and Democrats are controlled and corrupt. The answer is not let’s give the Government more power. The answer is, let’s have the people exercise their power over their own lives.

      Good luck with that, but I predict you will simply be arrested for violating one of the many laws that can see you imprisoned for nothing other than a whispered accusation. Anyone that remembers East Germany should be prepared for the arrival of the Stasi police state in America. They will imprison you and shoot you to keep you under control.
