Cannabis Makes Family TV Time More Fun, Say Pot-Smoking Parents

Study found 8 out of 10 respondents consume weed before TV time

In unsurprising news, it appears parents occasionally enjoy their children’s company more while stoned, based on a survey just released by NYC-based media and brand consultancy Miner and Co. Studio.

Some key findings from the survey include the fact that cannabis appears to make TV time with kids more enjoyable, and that contrary to popular stereotypes, parents who consume cannabis are actually an engaged, present and mindful audience.

Nearly eight out of 10 cannabis-using parents surveyed said they regularly consume cannabis prior to watching TV with their children, with the majority agreeing it makes TV shows more enjoyable, leading to more time watching the shows and subsequent discussions with their kids.

Additionally, 75 percent of respondents reported they watch more TV while using cannabis, which should pique the interest of networks, studios and marketers.
