The NY Daily News wrote an article on what the Weed‘s stars smoke when they’re on set–it’s herbal tobacco. The executive producer of the show said, “According to them (the actors), it gets them higher than regular marijuana…They end up smoking so much of it they get very lightheaded, and they don’t like it. Sometimes they do take after take, and you will see them getting woozy because it has a strange effect on them. But it’s totally legal, and it is what we are supposed to use.”
I could only imagine tobacco getting them light headed smoking it take after take I’ve smoked herbal tobacco in a hookkah a few times, and was so damn dizzy (not a good dizzy) and vowed to never go to a hookkah bar again. Honestly, I’d almost rather smoke real weed.
In the article it also said that Weeds used baby laxatives in an episode instead of Cocaine. Really? Baby Laxatives? I guess that’s more mild than real laxatives in your nose? What is the logic behind that? Purging snot? I guess real cocaine and baby laxatives could both potentially cause nose bleeds, so maybe it is like the real thing.
Just thought the article was interesting…have a look at it if you’re bored.
