Super High Me (2007) is a documentary that follows Doug Benson -a comedian whose stand up revolves around marijuana use- as he spends 30 days without using marijuana and 30 days consuming the marijuana non-stop.

The goal of his experiment is to see what the “real” effects of marijuana use are on a person.  Even though the movie is a very lighthearted watch, it explores the deeper issue debate in public policy medicinal marijuana use.

A major focus of the documentary, regarding public policy and medical marijuana use is the differences in federal and state laws regarding the use of medical marijuana.  For example, even if a state allows the use of marijuana for medical purposes, federal law does not allow this.  Therefore, the contradiction in the laws makes for a legal gray area.  Check out IMDb for a more detailed summary http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1111833/
