Watch This: A Republican, a Democrat, and an Independent Smoke Together

August 25, 2017

A Republican, a Democrat, and an Independent voter walk into a room and sit down to smoke a bowl. Sounds like the beginning of a joke, doesn’t it?

Instead, it’s the premise for this intriguing new video. Cannabis is one of the few truly universal topics among those of varying political ideologies. The first question, “Have you ever smoked weed?” is met with a resounding “yes” from all parties.

Before the joints are lit, the Democrat and Republican almost immediately start butting heads, while the Independent voter shakes his head, smiles, and starts lighting the joint, evidently anticipating the need for a little herbal relief amidst the tension.

Within minutes, they each begin to find common ground, agreeing that social media is exacerbating the divide between parties and that the media itself may be also presenting a biased approach. They traverse topics like immigration and voting, but in the end, despite their differences, they can all agree on at least one thing: “We still all are Americans.”

Check it out and see if these three can challenge your viewpoint:
