Women want to be her, men want to be with her. Her name is Mermaid—Marijuana Mermaid.
From the hazy confines of her bedroom, our hero (whose real name is Frances) sets out to smoke more weed in one sitting than many people will consume in a lifetime. Specifically, Frances’ mission is to smoke 100 hits of weed in a row—using a bong, bubbler and joint—filming the process for the satisfaction of her dedicated social media following.
Like a true legend, Frances admits in the beginning of her video that “I took a fat dab before this video started.” It’s precisely this devil-may-care attitude, along with her bottomless appetite for herb, that endeared her to a wide audience of YouTube and Instagram followers in the first place. But smoking 100 hits in a row is more than just a stunt directed at her fanbase—it’s also a refutation of every marijuana skeptic who peddles fraudulent stories about “weed overdoses” with the desperation of a street-corner preacher.
“This is not good for your lungs. This is not good for your body probably,” She says after ten hits. And yet— with weed in her lungs, love in her heart, and the faces of every young marijuana enthusiast with a dream in her mind—she persists.
Eventually, Frances exhales her final hit: glorious number 100. With eyes slightly redder than when she began, and through what is surely a devastating case of the pasties, she announces her holy verdict: “Now we’re going to get donuts! I like donuts.”
We hope that Frances enjoyed her well-deserved donuts. Because after smoking 100 hits of weed in a row, with only the munchies to show for it, our hero proves—maybe once and for all—that a “marijuana overdose” is fated to remain, if nothing else, a figment of Jeff Sessions’ nightmares.
