    Whether it’s art, design or cooking, a 2011 study that was published in Psychology Today pointed out that “cannabis-induced altered state of mind may indeed lead to breaking free from ordinary thinking and associations, thereby increasing the likelihood of generating novel ideas or associations.”

    Of course, cartoons. And of course we did some digging to find out which cartoon characters have talked about getting lit. Here’s what we found:

    Rick and Morty

    The series has referenced Breaking Bad, much to fans’ delight. And while there are no overt references to cannabis, in the post-credits of the episode “Lawnmower Dog,” Rick and Scary Terry are shown smoking pot.

    Outside of the show, Rick and Morty have inspired a host of cannabis accessories such as Rick and Morty bongs and a rolling tray featuring characters from the show. Karing Kind, a dispensary in Boulder, Col.,has a dedicated ‘Watching with Weed: Rick and Morty Guide’ on their website. There’s also a cannabis strain name, Scroopy Noopersthat, according to Leafly, is inspired by “the fictional environmental activist and son of King Flippy Nips,”

    Hey Arnold!

    The an animated children’s series Hey Arnold! premiered in 1996. In a YouTube clip from the show that currently has over a million views, Grandpa is sitting down to talk to Arnold (in the bathroom, for some reason?) and tells him that he’s too old to go back to school as he has lost too many brain cells. Arnold tries to console him and tells him that he’s not too old, and has plenty of brain cells. “No, not since Woodstock,” Grandpa says.

    Woodstock is legendary for its stories of drug use, so it’s possible old gramps was referring to blazing it up at the festival in his glory days.

    Family Guy

    Aptly titled “420”, the episode follows Brian and Stewie as they set out trying to legalize marijuana. When the two get pulled over by the cops, Brian gets busted for having some pot with him. He is bailed out by his family and placed on probation. One thing leads to another and Brian gets high before a drug test, so he tries to get Stewie to take it for him. Later, he and Stewie lead a campaign to legalize marijuana in the show’s fictional town, Quahog. Eventually, the town’s mayor legalizes cannabis, and everyone is lighting up.
