Watch Aubrey Plaza Smoke Weed With the Chillest Nuns Ever

If you want to see something positively delightful, check out comedian Aubrey Plaza’s new video in which she smoked pot with the so-called “Weed Nuns.”

As Plaza and the two Sisters of the Valley light up, Sister Kate tells Plaza how she was inspired to become a nun after hearing that Congress had declared pizza as a vegetable to make school lunches seem healthier than they are.

“I said, ‘If pizza is a vegetable, I’m a nun,” Sister Kate recalls.

Plaza and the nuns also talk about how Jesus Christ probably smoked weed himself, assuming he had access to the delightful bud. The topic is particularly appropriate considering that Plaza and Brie Larson star in an upcoming raunchy comedy in which they play a pair of nuns, “The Little Hours.”

Despite their nickname, the weed nuns do not actually belong to the Catholic Church, according to a report by Reuters. They instead claim that their holy trinity centers around hemp, which they cultivate on their own and they convert into cannabis-based ointments and balms.

As Sister Kate told Reuters, “We’re against religion, so we’re not a religion. We consider ourselves Beguine revivalists, and we reach back to pre-Christian practices.”

She added, “A sister becomes a sister through a commercial relationship and earning a wage or a commission and we want to grow this way because we want to free the women, we don’t want to make them more dependent.”

Sister Kate also said that the group earned $750,000 in sales in 2016, which was the year that California legalized recreational marijuana.

Their message is especially relevant in the Trump era, considering that the president’s attorney general Jeff Sessions has doubled down on the war on drugs and openly stated that “good people don’t smoke marijuana.”
