Don't fear the reefer: 'The Martha Stewart Show' goes to pot!

M4099_625_2Attention, stoners! It seems somebody has finally given Martha Stewart the right kind of viewer research—you know, the kind that lets her know that plennnnty of you are at home watching her daytime talk show and hittin’ the pipe on a regular basis. At least, that’s my guess after receiving an e-mail this morning that included an announcement that next Monday’s episode of The Martha Stewart Show will be “entirely dedicated to the world of pot.”

I’m not really sure how this will go over with Martha’s dedicated fan base of type-A closet reorganizers and guppies in search of the perfect cassoulet recipe—I mean, do those people even know what pot is?—but the e-mail release had some pretty smokin’ (sorry) teasers. For instance, Monday’s episode will feature Martha talking about her stash of pots while an onscreen crawl highlights every word she uses that includes “pot.” She’ll hang out with some pot-bellied pigs, chat with some professional plant potters, and welcome guest Jimmy Fallon, who brings Martha a plate of brownies upon entrance (while cracking an already-tired Michael Phelps joke) and later cooks his favorite chili in, yep, a Crock-Pot.

Haha. Pot. Get it? You know, this isn’t the first time our Martha has flirted with pot culture—plenty of us recall our jaws hitting the floor when she made her uproarious appearance alongside Busta Rhymes at the 1997 Video Music Awards. For all the times we’ve heard rumors of nasty, cutthroat behavior, Martha’s her own best lampoonist, and it’s pretty admirable that she plays along so well. Or maybe, after all those months in prison, the girl’s just got a need for weed. Weed HUMOR, I mean! (Seriously, Martha, don’t sue me. I in no way presume that you toke up on a regular basis.)

So, stoners and non-stoners alike, does this episode sound like fun to you? Will you be watching?
