A Pot-Smoker's Dream, A Normal Person's Mediocre Comedy.
3 August 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Can't say I really cared for this episode. Season 7 isn't exactly their best, there is a few episodes, but this one really, like the Atheism one, overboard with political viewpoints. I miss the days when Family Guy wasn't so political based. Brian is just Seth in character, voicing opinions that nobody really cares to hear. Family Guy always has mocked religion and such, but lately it's been a little overboard.

Basically in this episode, Bryan crusades to get pot legalized. An intellectual such as himself should have seen the dangers in having it, but the idea is that behind the character is an idiot who wants his political viewpoints heard.

The ending was a bit crappy, because it's just a way of closing out the deal and having everything return to normal.

The only reason people really cared for this episode, was because the song and most pot users tend to love something that sticks up for something they like though the rest of us look and think it's stupid.
