Sometimes I get high and think about Snoop Dogg's short-lived sketch comedy show


Sometimes I get high is a series about the activities you do or things you think about when you’re high, in deep detail, for the fun of it.  If it wasn’t for a few grainy recordings on YouTube, I might think that I hallucinated Doggy Fizzle Televizzle.
