Golden Girls Go Green

Representing the older generation of ladies joining the cannabis crusade, three Washington state grandmothers agree to try marijuana for the first time in this video posted yesterday by YouTuber, Cut Video. In less than 24 hours it has allowed over 5 million viewers to experience what it might be like to teach Grandma how to rip a bong, toke on a vape and play Cards Against Humanity. I myself have thought of this many times, though my elders are not quite as liberal as these fine ladies. Paula, Dorothea and Deirdre expose how harmless and fun cannabis can be for anyone!

It is clear that these women are having an experience in this video. Feeling “butterflies” and curiously looking at the bong in front of them they confess, “we don’t know what to do with that.” Another crosses herself and exclaims, “Oh, Jesus” before attempting to use the foreign object. If I were ever in this situation with my sweet Grammy, she would surely do the same. One divulges she even preferred the bong to a “cigarette,” perhaps because it gave her a “tingle in her brain.” This unique documentation of a first experience makes viewers wish their own first tokes could have been taped.

They next encounter a vaporizer, producing equally humorous results as the women react to the phallic shape of the one chosen. “Well, I’m not gonna tell you what was running through my mind,” one confesses before being coaxed to admit, “I thought it was a dildo, but I’ve never seen anything on the end of it!” After she tries it she professes with a cheeky smirk, “That straw thing… you wanna swallow.” It seems they prefer the more modern and smooth method to the harsher forms of smoking, especially when they realize vaporizing is virtually smokeless. “Oh, this could be dangerously fun,” one decides.

However, the women are even more jarred by their induction into the shameful entertainment that is Cards Against Humanity. It starts with the trio discussing Hannah Montana’s first bleached asshole and only gets better. The threesome could likely sell their “What is Queefing” discussion as a comedy bit and pick up more followers than “Who’s on First.” After a stint of confusion, the poor cameraman has to look these women in their gentle grandmotherly eyes and explain vaginal farts. It is the purest of comedic gold.

One of the most interesting points for me was the beginning. When asked why the women had never smoked before, they provide some interesting answers. “Too busy raising children” and “we had our cocktails and cigarettes.” No one answered, “because it is still federally prohibited,” which would seem to be the more grandmotherly response. Their candid opinions show the normalcy of cannabis use from an entirely new angle. These grandmas aren’t smoking to cope with their hip replacement or to ease their glaucoma. They are smoking to be social and enjoy themselves. Instead of wine and bridge, these grannies choose buds and lewd mad libs, and that’s just fine!
