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.
