Back in 2013, when Hemply was just a dream in my peculiar mind, I enlisted The Strongest There Is to create a droll, animated sketch about cannabis legalization. And create a droll sketch they did. Imagine a world where a teacher, perhaps one with crazy, silver hair, lectures students about the benefits of marijuana legalization.

In a state like Colorado, where recreational marijuana has been legal since 2012, maybe a teacher or a professor has already lectured students about the virtues of cannabis legalization. But what about in Kansas or Virginia? In those states, recreational marijuana legalization seems years or decades away. That’s why we have to keep spreading the word.
