Ilana Glazer on Time Traveling Bong: ‘I like the idea that women carry their own weed’ | The Verge

For Ilana Glazer, smoking weed is all about owning it.

Cannabis is ever-present on Broad City, the Comedy Central series that shot her to fame. In the show’s off-kilter version of New York City, Glazer and her partner-in-crime Abbi Jacobson get into surrealistic misadventures involving apartment hunting, awkward hookups, and melted sex toys. Weed is a normal, given presence on the show, and it’s matter-of-fact about how much the pair smoke and how much they enjoy it. In one recent episode, Ilana hosts a party where one of the centerpieces is a wide spread of exotic pot strains. Like a haze, there it is waiting for you to breathe it in.

Glazer, who writes and produces the series with Jacobson and their team, has long been upfront about her recreational use — just last week she smoked up with Snoop Dogg for his online news network GGN. But there’s a feminist bent to her carefree inclusion of weed in her work, and she takes it seriously. Blazing isn’t something she picked up from a significant other. “It’s my thing!” she told me — and she won’t apologize for it.
