Doug Benson is featured in the documentary Super High Me, which chronicles his life Morgan Spurlock-style as the regular pot smoker goes 30 days stone cold sober — and follows it with 30 days of unadulterated daily marijuana use. See what happens to Doug (and his stand-up routine) in the the controversial documentary, which of course opens in select cities on April 20 (4/20). Click here for the official Super High Me website.
