PETER SAGAL, HOST:
Here's an unaired moment from one of our past shows.
HELEN HONG: Yes?
SAGAL: Helen, with more and more states legalizing pot, the hot, new trend, as I'm sure you all know...
SAGAL: The hot, new trend is cannabis drinks. However, the manufacturers of these drinks are facing a challenge. What?
HONG: A problem amongst cannabis drinks is that you drink one, and then you fall asleep....
HONG: So they don't really sell a lot of them.
SAGAL: No, that's not the problem.
HONG: Can I have a hint?
SAGAL: Well, you may not notice by the third one.
HONG: Oh, it takes a while for it to hit, so you're just blazed.
SAGAL: No, that's not the problem. It's a much more basic problem for people selling beverages.
HONG: You pee the weed out.

HONG: It tastes bad.

SAGAL: I told you.
HONG: I was, like, way overthinking it.
SAGAL: You were, in fact.
HONG: Oh, it tastes like yuck.
SAGAL: It does. It tastes exactly like yuck.
SAGAL: Actually, they do taste terrible. They have flavors described as, quote, "oily grass..."
SAGAL: ...And having notes of, quote, "dish soap and urine."
LUKE BURBANK: I know - I think you're thinking of Zima.
BURBANK: It really gives a new meaning to this Bud's for you.
(SOUNDBITE OF SONG, "DUBOLINE")
PAMA INTERNATIONAL: (Singing) So it's after the show, and we need to relax. We reach into our bags for our favorite snacks. Fresh from the jar - we don't have to look far, so let's break it up, shake it up, buy out the bar. Yeah. I got a (unintelligible) and now I'm grinding, grinding, (unintelligible) picking out the seeds...
SAGAL: When we come back, the bluff game that's a real blast and the great Candice Bergen. That's in a minute on WAIT WAIT... DON'T TELL ME from NPR. Transcript provided by NPR, Copyright NPR.
