    Jokily inspired by Morgan Spurlock's award winning 2004 documentary film "Super Size Me", SUPER HIGH ME sees affable American stand-up comedian and self-confessed stoner Doug Benson (HBO Comedy Showcase; Last Comic Standing) taking Spurlock's idea of spending 30 miserable days eating fast food and giving it a fun, drugged-out spin by replacing the burgers with marijuana!
    Doug's enviable task is to spend 30 consecutive days smoking, eating and vaporizing medical marijuana (available legally on prescription in California and several other US states) on an admirable quest to get 'super high'. But, there's a catch. First, Doug must go 30 days without any marijuana whatsoever and undertake a battery of tests while completely sober. Once his dope journey is fully underway, Doug must then take the same tests while high in an effort to find out what marijuana actually does and how its constant use can affect the functions of a person's mind and body. The results, not too surprisingly, prove to be both highly amusing and remarkably enlightening.

    While hilariously continuing his usual day-to-day life working as a stand-up comedian, but now seriously under the influence, Doug also takes time to explore the current situation regarding medical marijuana in California, specifically focusing on the conflict between federal and state law and the explosive growth in medical marijuana dispensaries in Los Angeles over the past two years.

    As Doug's odyssey unwinds, the film follows him as he sets out on the road, performing gigs across the country and hanging out with fellow comedians and performers including Sarah Silverman, Greg Proops, Brian Posehn, Bob Odenkirk, Patton Oswalt, former Jane's Addiction members Dave Navarro and Stephen Perkins, and radio DJ and Vandals bassist, Joe Escalante, among others.

    As much a comedy as it is a documentary, SUPER HIGH ME is a gleefully executed chronicle of a dedicated stoner on a mission that proves to be poignant, revealing and very, very funny.

    A member of the writing team that created and performed the off-Broadway hit show, The Marijuana-logues (like The Vagina Monologues on pot), prior to making SUPER HIGH ME, Doug Benson was named Stoner of the Year 2006 by High Times Magazine.
