Reader: Seth Meyers's joke about about mobile medical marijuana program untrue, unfunny

Yesterday, we posted about a Saturday Night Live gag on Weekend Update, hosted by Seth Meyers, which attempted to satirize Medical Marijuana Assistance Program of the Rockies' mobile MMJ program.

Was the bit hilarious? At least one commenter thinks not.

I hope that the exposure is good for MMAPR, but the joke is on SNL's audience. The so-called joke really represents the dead weight of societal misunderstanding of cannabis, which manifests itself as dismissiveness of the import of our policies regarding it. The joke is really a communication from the young, not-so-progressive Mr. Meyers to the effect that MMAPR is a ruse to distribute cannabis -- not true and not funny.
