Journalists get to smoke Cannabis on TV. Or why not me, why not me?
Jennie Bond, the broadcaster better known for blowing smoke up the arses of the royal family, volunteered to take part in a ground-breaking trial, which looks at the effect smoking cannabis has on the neurological and psychological effects on memory, appreciation of music and psychological wellbeing.
After inhaling the drug, Jennie reveals that while she didn’t particularly enjoy the experience, she ‘certainly didn’t hate it’, before filling out a questionnaire about her experience.
“Do I want food? Not particularly unless its grapes,” she says. “I’m adoring these grapes but I think that’s mostly because I just adore grapes and kind of live on them but they are tasting especially good. “I can be really boring about grapes because I just believe in them.”
Another well-known face who took part in the experiment was Channel 4 News presenter Jon Snow, who had a far less enjoyable experience after inhaling potent skunk cannabis.
Snow inhaled the drug from a plastic container, and soon became “woozy” before being led to an MRI machine to have his brain activity analysed. Inside the machine, he becomes increasingly anxious, saying “I don’t think I want to do this, it’s horrible. Can you let me out?” Once released from the machine, Snow is visibly distressed and dazed. Alluding to his reporting from war zones, Snow says “If you can stick it out in Gaza, you should be able to stick it out in a bloody scanner.”
So what, really, have we learnt from these experiments? In no particular order your friend and cannabis eater Mashed Crab says:
1. DON’T give free bloody cannabis to people who’ve got the money to buy it themselves.
2. DON’T give a massive draw of skunk to someone who doesn’t usually smoke. As we’ve seen it either freaks you out or gives you the mega munchies.
3. DO invite Mashed Crab onto TV to smoke cannabis. Anytime, all the time, as I’ve got the time…………
