Introducing Hollywood’s Newest Darling: Mary Jane
The latest phenomenon to take over the silver screen is not a budding actor or actress. It’s just bud. According to Time.com, despite the perenially raging war on drugs, marijuana has been lighting up (pun intended) the screen a lot recently, making frequent appearances in movies and TV shows. Having a TV show (Showtime’s “Weeds”) take on its namesake seemed to served as a launching point for pot’s acting career, and the progression to movies was only natural. After being featured in films like The 40-Year-Old Virgin and Knocked Up, pot is now taking on starring rolls (homonym also intended) in the upcoming movies Pineapple Express and The Wackness, both opening this summer. Whether or not you are part of the 6% of Americans who actually smoke it, pot can now be experienced by anyone checking out the latest stock of THC-filled comedies.
