    This is a nice change from the last marijuana storyline where Kelly got expelled and sent to prison, and Emma's roommate almost died. Marijuana is just 3 cigarettes' worth of carcinogens and getting goofy. Is it bad for you? Yes. But are there dozens of other things that are worse? Yes again.


    This is how I hope the conversation will go when Becky's parents find out..


    Becky: Please Mom and Dad, he makes me happy, and does the bible not say "Let he who is without sin cast the first stone?"


    Dad: Ok. You have my blessing.


    Becky: I...wha? Just like that


    Dad: Yeah, he seems like a fine upstanding individual who'll treat you like a gentleman should. And if he makes you happy, hten I'm happy


    Becky: I've got to be honest, I thought you'd be up in arms about the transgender thing


    Mom: There are worse things in life; a lot of guys don't care about anything except getting under a girl's skirt on the first date, like your brother


    Luke: Hey...

    There were so many cheesy scenes in this ep. (*Cough*Frenchfryscene *Cough*Mostofbecky'sscenes)

    One thing that I did love about this was Adam's 'Born To Die' poster. Love Lana Del Rey

    Yeah i noticed the LDR poster too. that was awesome. the A plot shoulda been Jake and Eli blazing for like 15 minutes, and had Drianca and Beckdam share the other 5.

    Did anyone else find it just a little rediculous that, just a short time after witnessing the mess that was Claire and her mentor, Eli would succum to being blinded by a mentor? Are they going to have "Eli said" tweets? I'm sorry, but his over-the-top reaction was, to me, just a tad OOC (unless he's off his meds).

    Meh, I think the writers purposely made it cheesy. Plus there were plenty of cheesy scenes in the first few seasons.


    Anyway, my review:


    Adam/Becky: Cute plot. A tad bit rushed, but it was nice to see them get together.


    Eli/Jake: Can someone say worst plot ever? Jake and Eli randomly smoking pot? I mean Jake's supposed to be a treehugger according to his S12 personality and just like Emma, he's getting high off marijuana? Must Degrassi do this to all nature lovers on the show? -___________-


    Drew/Bianca: UGHHHH boring. I am so tired of watching the Drianca show. Seriously Degrassi, just put them on the back burner for the rest of the season. Overall, I felt this was a mediocre start to the fall season and hopefully things get better as the weeks progress.

    I'm glad that the media has finally shaken off its drug-phobia, actually exploring what happens with drugs instead of giving the blanket statement of "drugs are bad period" and scaring kids with the fear of the unknown.


    It was refreshing to have Eli and Jake smoking pot without some tragedy or calamity coming out of it, I mean for serious, the last time they did an episode about pot, it was a freaky cult, and the time before that, someone almost died!
