Proving That Life Is One Big South Park Episode, Weed Prevents COVID

I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again, we are living in a South Park episode. Weed preventing the spread of COVID? Why the fuck not?

The two compounds commonly found in hemp — called cannabigerolic acid, or CBGA, and cannabidiolic acid, or CBDA — were identified during a chemical screening effort as having potential to combat coronavirus, researchers from Oregon State University said. In the study, they bound to spike proteins found on the virus and blocked a step the pathogen uses to infect people.

Suppose this somehow miraculously ends up in the government having to give divy out free weed. In that case, I will forgive the Omicron Variant for prohibiting me from seeing my Grandma on Christmas. There’s a lot of debate going on about the best treatment for a virus that has been around longer than Freaks and Geeks, but this is something we can all agree on. The Biden administration has been trying harder than a divorced Dad to appeal to the youth; could this be next?
