In "300 big boys" Bender smokes a cigar (Le Grand Cigar) where the rolling paper is made of the original Constitution of the USA. (Rolled by queen Elisabeth(!) during her "wild years" ) In actuality, this constitution was written on paper made from the Cannabis Sativa or hemp plant.
So what do you strumpets think; Did the producers/writers/directors/whatevers consider this fact before making the joke?
And is it funnier now?
Yes, but not by enough!

Also, excuse my bad english, I am... how you say... not english.

I didn't think they actually thought that one through, but now that I see it was made from a hemp plant it seems like a strong possibility. And yes, it is funnier now!  roll eyes

I think your English is fine.  It's better than most of the English people on the board. 

Uh, isn't it the case that hemp paper is not psychoactive?  Hemp lobbyists in the US have made a big deal out of the fact that the plants they intend to use industrially can't be used to make drugs.  It's the male plants, or something.

Correct, the cannabis sativa plant cannot be used for smoking, there is little traces of the psychoactive substance THC or tetrahydrocannabinol. The female plant of the Cannabis Indica plant however, now that's really really really cool, dude.

That means; you cannot smoke the first american flag ever made, you cannot smoke the first pair of Levi's jeans, You cannot smoke the first printed bible, but it is made of the strongest most enviornmentally friendly fiber in the world.

But for the constitution joke, you have to suspend disbelief.
