Medical Marijuana Assistance Program of the Rockies hits Saturday Night Live (VIDEO)

Update below: You know you're making an impact when your business model is satirized on national television.

That's what happened to Medical Marijuana Assistance Program of the Rockies, which was needled by Seth Meyers on this weekend's edition of Saturday Night Live. See the clip below.

The gag appeared in the Weekend Update feature, with Meyers announcing, "A doctor in Colorado has converted two trailers into mobile doctor's offices to help dispense medical marijuana to patients in rural areas." Barely a beat later, he continues, "Oh, wait... I read that wrong. Some guy in Colorado is selling weed out of a trailer. There you go."

Congrats, MMAPR. You've hit the big time! The entire SNL episode is below. The joke in question appears in the fifth segment, just past the 42 minute mark.

Update, 8:23 a.m.: Just heard from MMAPR's Vincent Palazzotto, who notes that Saturday Night Live heard about his program to bring medical marijuana to rural areas via a CNN report from last week. Here's the network's package, which takes a considerably more serious look at the subject than did SNL.

Robert--dude, you need to lighten up or your gonna have a stroke or something. It's called satire. Relax, laugh a little. How ironic that the most stoner show in TV history is being dissed by stoners for not being serious enough about pot. Watch the Chris Farley skit below. Please.

I love good satire, so I don't watch SNL. How ironic that the most stoner show in TV history sabotages stoners.

Marijuana is the safest drug with actual benefits for the user as opposed to alcohol which is dangerous, causes addiction, birth defects, and affects literally every organ in the body. Groups are organizing all over the country to speak their minds on reforming pot laws. I drew up a very cool poster for the cause which you can check out on my artist’s blog at http://dregstudiosart.blogspot... Drop in and let me know what you think!

I hope that the exposure is good for MMAPR, but the joke is on SNL's audience. The so-called joke really represents the dead weight of societal misunderstanding of cannabis, which manifests itself as dismissiveness of the import of our policies regarding it. The joke is really a communication from the young, not-so-progressive Mr. Meyers to the effect that MMAPR is a ruse to distribute cannabis -- not true and not funny.

I'll have to agree with Robert on this one. It's bloody terrible is what it is. Being acknowledged, cool. The manner in which MMARP was acknowledged, not cool. What we are all trying to accomplish here is not funny and what MMARP is doing is not what they said and it is certainly not funny. Besides, SNL has sucked balls for what?.....the last 12 years or more. Does anyone ever watch that shit show anymore? Go away already. Actually it is perfect. A not funny, irrelevant show making not funny jokes. Perfect.
