Pot Culture – Volume 3: More Fictional Characters That Would Benefit From Medicinal Marijuana…

Okay, so once again, I’m going to discuss some fictional characters and the issues they suffer from. I believe that some (if not all) of these issues could be treated and improved through medicinal marijuana. That’s not to say the stories or films they’re in would improve. Some of their adventures and narrative shenanigans might cease to exist if their health (mental and/or physical) improved. But if I can help just a few fake people/creatures, then I’ll consider myself a success…

1) Eeyore (from WINNIE THE POOH)

Eeyore is depressed. Severely depressed.

He’s so depressed that his damn tail keeps trying to run away from him. Have you ever been so depressed that your own body parts try to completely fuck off? And he’s so depressed that he doesn’t care when people use a thumbtack to stick his tail back on.

Marijuana CAN help some people with depression ( https://broadly.vice.com/en_us/article/bmwwmz/why-people-smoke-weed-to-treat-depression ). Eeyore needs some medicinal marijuana. He also needs some medicinal hugs. The guy’s a mess and I identify with him completely. But hopefully, some medical pot could at least help him to see something positive in the world and (even if just for a moment), know what happiness is.

 

2) The Hulk.
No one is more angry, and more dangerous when they’re angry than Bruce Banner’s alter ego. Also, I don’t think anyone goes through more pants than him either.

One of the things that basically everyone has always known about marijuana is that it can seriously mellow a person out. And if there’s ever a pro-mellowing movement, it should start at The Hulk’s front door. This dude would destroy an entire neighborhood just for stubbing his toe. Plus, he’s green. He’s naturally color coordinated with his medicine. That’s practical and basic fashion sense.

But, not all weed is created equal. And the LAST thing we want is to give Hulk something that makes him overly anxious and extremely paranoid. That won’t end well for anyone. Best bet is to get him something LOW in THC (the brain-fuckery causing aspect) and HIGH in CBD (the more medicinal and body relaxing aspect).

The calmer the body and less paranoid the brain, the more Banner, and less Hulk we get ( https://www.thestranger.com/feature/2016/04/13/23950787/want-to-relax-dont-let-them-talk-you-into-high-thc-weed ).

3) Batman
Seriously, Batman has numerous issues that need addressing.

He has PTSD from witnessing his parents murder (plus he has to re-experience it in damn near every movie). He has anxiety because of all the crime in Gotham (crime that more than likely has increased specifically due to HIS existence). He is depressed because depending on which version you read or watch, basically every one of his loved ones are murdered. I’m pretty sure he is nightmare-laden from everything he’s been through. He fights crime at night, which probably causes an erratic sleep pattern, which can lead to insomnia. And he has chronic pain due to constantly fighting villains and getting the Hell beaten out of him.

Many of my previous articles have discussed each of these issues in detail. Batman could be the poster child for medicinal marijuana because he is a sufferer of multiple treatable symptoms. He could literally use numerous strains to help him cope with his own life.

For a refresher, here are MANY issues (many of which Batman does or could suffer from) that can be improved through medicinal marijuana ( http://www.businessinsider.com/health-benefits-of-medical-marijuana-2014-4/#it-can-be-used-to-treat-glaucoma-1 ).

Batman would easily get a prescription if he ever went to the doctor.. Plus, everyone would love to see what sort of technologically advanced Bat-bong he would build.
