Chris learns that he is a square when he can't distinguish between tobacco cigarettes and pot reefers. Thanos interviews some marijuana-friendly comedians before an open-mic night to know if they think weed can help with health and performance anxiety. Back in studio, Jonathan and Chris talk about THC versus CBD, and whether or not weed has been shown to help treat glaucoma, pain, nausea, cancer, multiple sclerosis, insomnia, Tourette's, HIV, anxiety, PTSD, epilepsy, Parkinson's, IBS, ALS, and Huntington's. Plus: a James Franco sound-alike; christopathic pain; beach umbrellas; conflicts of interest; and Patreon!
