  1. Personally have a hatred for 420 and the drug in general but you guys are talking bout service announcement sooo, this should be great!

    1. I’m just curious, why do you hate 4/20? I understand the hate of “420 blaz it fagget” but in real life why do you hate it?

  2. Oh wow, I had just heard about Cartoon All-Stars to the Rescue like a week ago and was going to suggest it for a future episode.

  3. Great episode guys but I think that it is kind of ironic that the last episode was about crime stories and this episode is about taking drugs

  4. Heh, man, I actually remember watching that all stars cartoon as a kid… And liking it XD

    But man, even as someone that’s almost one quarter of a century old and that has never used any kind of drugs or smoked, and barely drunk anything. (enough to know I didn’t like it.) I do now realize that media back sure did demonize drugs in a super overblown way, which is funny, because doing that only makes people realize later that all you said in those PSAs was a fucking lie, so they then ignore or invalidate it completely, and thus any potentially valid point they had against the use of drugs becomes completely undermined.

  5. Another great episode! I’ll be glad to donate money as soon as I can but I’m currently two weeks away from unemployment and the job hunt is going poorly.

  6. It’s reeeeeally weird like how on it commercials were about drugs back then. I mean I was born in the 90s and I remember having to do DARE and stuff but like….it was never this bad. The most I can really remember being similar is that one commercial with that lady telling you not to smoke through her voice box thing.

  7. I’d always heard the “I learned it from watching you!”, but never saw the PSA. Also, how did you get through a whole episode without playing the “The More You Know” music? Or did I miss that?

  8. Just want to say real quick that Brett’s thing with milk is not completely true. It’s definitely true of whole milk which is FUCKING awful for you and should only be consumed by children. However low fat milk and whatnot is not packed with many calories or fat at all and is a great source of protein. Which most people don’t get enough of. As someone who works out quite a bit I am very thankful it’s there.

  9. Yeah Brett, please tell us all about the problems with vitamin-filled, protein-filled milk as an admitted soda/Taco Bell addict.

    1. Wellll I’m pretty open about the garbage I eat, but neither TB/MD proclaim to be good for you or essential nutrition. You know you’re buying a pile of calories and sugar. My problem is the deception and indoctrination we undergo as kids, for not just milk/beef but also recreational drugs etc. Things we’re told are horrible and awful usually aren’t that bad, things we’re told are totally healthy and we need to eat it every day just may have some government money behind it. Adults can figure it out but 9 year olds watching Ninja Turtles? Prolly not.

      1. Like you guys I’m a sickening Liberal shithead but I think you guys take drugs a little bit too lightly. I have had friends who started out with some “innocent” pot smoking and ended up in some horrible situations. 2 of them are dead. While the pot itself may now be dangerous (although it has horrible long-term effects on your cognitive skills) the culture surrounding it is often life-ruining.

        BRETT! Milk is also in adition to be full of calories and sugar (less than a glass of coke) it is also one of the best ways to get calcium and protein. I agree with your disappointment in it’s marketing as the solution to everything but it is not Satan in liquid form.

        Sorry if the tone of my comment is negative, I love the show. I just think you send the wrong message when it comes to pot. Keep up the good work on the show.

  10. Friggin’….stupid potheads on 4/20 on the bus made me miss making it to the Cherry Blossom Festival this year, ARGH

  11. Laser Time is getting seriouser and seriouser.

    obviously, one hit rarely ever kills. substance addiction just turns you into the UNdead; the government is only ever protecting its interests (read: worker bees to keep the economy going) through hyperbolic scare tactics, as drugs, alcohol, and even smoking threaten those interests by reducing them into lethargic, un-taxable vampires.

    actually, a significant portion of my childhood–and adult–friends and acquaintances have gone completely over to the dark side, some as early as grade five: those who haven’t long lost everything, including the will to care, frequent methadone clinics, rehab, and struggle with relapse every waking moment. it’s always eerie to me why only i seem to be immune to all this crippling addiction–and believe me, i’ve given it all a good go–, but i don’t question it (only suffer a slight survivor’s guilt).

  12. It’s nice to hear some positive stuff on pot from people who aren’t known almost exclusively as stoners.

    Also, this is really gonna enhance your Shit Lords nights.

  13. I was listening to this podcast while I was taking out the garbage, and at a certain point I laughed so loud and heartily, I scared some neighborhood children that were playing in the street. Thanks, Laser Time!

  14. Seriously, guys? Encouraging drug use? I’ve been listening since like, Tdar 20, but I’m gonna have to skip this one.

    Love CARTOON ALL-STARS, though. Pooh Bear forever.
