Living above the influence?

  Have you seen that new above the influence commercial?  "What has weed done for you?"  There are a bunch of kids and cheesy music.  One of the girls says, "I got straight Ds."  It's actually pretty funny.  I thought it was clever the first time I saw it.  If you don't know what I'm talking about here's the link: What has weed done for you?

After seeing the commercial a few times I started to think of the opposite side.  They very creatively showed the negative sides to smoking, but what positive things have come from weed?  I think it's only fair for people to see the pros and cons before people decide whether they want to smoke or not.  So if i had the resources here's the commercial that I would create.  

In the background "Eye of the Tiger" would be playing or "You're the Best Around."

It would start with Michael Phelps wearing all his gold medals, "I won 14 gold medals!"
Then Lil Wayne, "I sold 3 million records and won 4 grammy awards!"
Then Seth Rogen, "I wrote Superbad!"
Then Allen Iverson, "I'm a 10 time NBA all-star and the 2001 NBA MVP!"
Then Randy Moss, "I caught 23 touchdown passes in 2007!"
Ending with Bill Clinton, "I was the president of the United States of America!"

What has weed done for you?
