Actor Jason Mewes Talks "Jay and Silent Bob Reboot" on “About That Time”
Jason Mewes of “Clerks” fame joined MERRY JANE’s 420 talkshow to discuss his weed brand, how he’s kept sober for nine years, and his new movie, “Jay and Silent Bob Reboot.”

On MERRY JANE’s About That Time, host Noah Rubin and comedian Kalea McNeill usually kick back and spark a joint while chatting with a who’s who of 420-friendly celebrities and artists. But this week’s episode snoochie-booched in another direction when Jason Mewes of Clerks fame crashed on ATT’s leather sofas.

Mewes, however, is one of the few ATT guests who did not partake in the crew smoke sesh. That’s because Mewes has struggled with substance abuse, and to remain clean, he swore off all intoxicants (except tobacco). “I know, guys, it’s weird,” he said to both the show’s hosts and to the audience behind the camera. “I’m all about the 420, but I’m sober now. You can’t go to AA meetings and say, ‘I’m nine years sober… but I just smoked a doobie!’”

Although Mewes may be clean these days, he’s remained true to “the 420.” Recently, he and his lifelong bestie, director Kevin Smith, launched their own weed brand based on their characters from the View Askew universe, Jay and Silent Bob. Their latest product line includes packs of pre-rolled joints for three weed strains that are featured in their upcoming flick, Jay and Silent Bob Reboot: Snoogans, Snoochie Boochies, and Berserker. All three strains refer to various inside jokes from the film franchise.
