Cannabis Comedy: 'Getting Doug with High'

Doug Benson's latest project is Getting Doug with High, during which he hangs out and smokes pot with comics and actors. So far the show on the Video Podcast Network has featured Tommy Chong, Sarah Silverman, Aubrey Plaza, Anthony Jeselnik, Jeff Ross, Abbi Jacobson and Ilana Glazer from Broad City, Matt Walsh, Matt Besser, Reggie Watts, Greg Proops, Natasha Leggero and Jenny Slate.

In the clip above, Plaza, who plays April on Parks and Recreation, says as she tokes a joint of Blue Dream, "It's a very relevant time to be here. Three years ago, not a great idea for me. But right now it's a great idea."

Benson has appeared in Super High Me, The Greatest Movie Ever Rolled and The Benson Interruption. He regularly tours comedy clubs and has the live podcast, Doug Loves Movies.

New episodes of Getting Doug with High air Wednesdays at 4:15 pm PST.
