In times of turmoil or when you are stoned out of your mind, one of the best things to do is to watch cartoons. “But cartoons are for kids” yes they are, but, not all of them, the thing is. Cartoons are created for two very important reasons, one is to keep you happy and two is to stop you from continuously worrying about things that are going wrong in your life.
While smoking weed or while high, your mind needs something to keep it occupied. If you don’t keep your mind occupied, you may experience anxiety, paranoia and other negative side effects of weed. Remember that old saying “an idle mind is the devil’s playground”?
“We would use it primarily to treat depression. I also could see it being helpful for people who have chronic worry because that co-occurs with depression” vice.
Although it is not a go-to strategy, David believes that cartoons can help people deal with stress, anxiety and depression. And it’s not cartoons alone:
“TV could be a pleasure activity. Watching something funny, that could be a lift”
“I don’t think that it has to be to cartoons or kid’s television. You could go to a comedy show, or watch rom-coms, or the office” Dr David Rosmarin.
10: One Punch Man
One punch man is the story of Saitama, a superhero who can defeat his enemies with a single punch.

8: The Simpsons
A beer loving father, a dedicated homemaker, an unappreciated middle child, a pacifier-loving infant and a proud underachiever, the Simpsons have been on TV for 29 years now. They prophesied Trump’s presidency, autocorrect and Disney’s takeover of 21st Century Fox. Despite the negative criticism the Simpsons has been getting of late because of Apu. The Simpsons is still very fun to watch especially while high.

Tom, a gray cat has been trying to catch jerry, a little brown mouse since 1940. This is a kid’s cartoon that’s very fun to watch while high, the Simpsons even have a hyper-violent version of it.

If you get easily offended, stay away from Family Guy. Family Guy is best described as sick, twisted and politically incorrect. It features the adventures of the Griffin family and their talking dog.
Archer or “Duchess” works or used to work for ISIS, not to be mistaken with the terrorist organization that’s chopping people’s heads off. ISIS is a spy organization and archer is or has convinced himself that he is the best agent there.
