11/23 Doug Benson

“Coffee’s so much worse than marijuana. I’ve never woke up in the morning and went, ‘If I don’t smoke marijuana right now, my brain is going to explode.’ It’s more like, ‘If I don’t smoke marijuana right now, it’ll seem odd ‘cause I do it every g*dd*** day.’ ”

“I know I’m getting old. Last week I threw my back out moving my stuff back into my mom’s house.”
