Pot law in California gets animated

The caricature of the slow, dim-witted stoner has provided comic fodder for ages, but as is its wont, the Next Media Animation group from Taiwan manages to put a new twist on the smoky subject.

On Nov. 2, Californians will take to the polls to vote on Proposition 19 to eliminate criminal penalties for marijuana possession for anyone older than 21. The animators have explained what it would mean if the law were to pass and who would benefit (hint: fast-food joints). They even manage to get the state's bear smoking a bong. This company never fails with its smart news satire.
