Bill Nye talks science of getting high

Culture
Bill Nye, you're back. Yes, Bridget. And you're saving the world once again. So in season two of Bill Nye Saves the World, is the world any better off since season one or are we still a hot mess? You'd think that 13 half hours of television on a streaming service would have changed the course of human history. But not, it hasn't been completely effective yet. [LAUGH] No, but it's cool, and we're back on the TV with big budget production, big travel buget. Well in your fist episode, you explore the science of marijuana and I hear that you purchased cannibas. I would like to buy some Marijuana, this is for science. I got, I guess it's called a license to buy Marijuana in California, din't go to a doctors office, din't present any evidence that I was a good or bad person. Just got it on internet then went to a store and bought it. And the woman there recommended a variety, and I gave it to the props department. [LAUGH] Just to tell you guys, I'm not crazy about the smell. Watching this, are we gonna see Bill Nye get high? No. In fact, you'll see me play ultimate frisbee with teamates who are high. That was our agreement So going into this episode, did you have an opinion about marijuana and did anything change when you were done with the episode? How about this, it refined my attitude. Here's the main thing you guys, here's the take away as we say in modern parlance, is nobody's really sure how it works. Marijuana, nobody's exactly sure what it does and so there is a very strong argument that keeping it as a Schedule I drug is not based on any science. Schedule I means that it's presumed to be addicting and it's presumed to have no medical value. But people use marijuana and marijuana extracts for all sorts of medical applications, so you gotta think there's something to it but the upshot of the show is nobody's sure how it works, so we gotta study marijuana more and find our really what the active ingredients are. All right, so let's talk about some other episodes. Yes. You have an episode on time travel? We always all wonder about it could you go back in time, and could you go forward in time ?It's important I think for everybody to understand a little bit of the physics of of the nature of time as far as we can tell it only goes one way for us. There was a Big Bang and the expansion of the universe. That happened. We see the stars moving apart. Why is that? Why does time only go one way? Why do we have the mythic second law of thermodynamics where you cannot build a perpetual motion machine? And it is sobering to think. But really ultimately, deep down all the time travel television shows, movies, stories, science fiction stories about time travel are ultimately about death. That and taxes seems to be the hand we are dealt. And so this show is, I'm really proud of it. Well, you also in your show talk about cyber security, what mysteries are still around about cyber security that you think people need answer on? Cuz I feel like we've all been hacked, we've all had our security breached in some way by now. This year. But how does everybody get hacked. If we're all so aware of it why are there all these troubles. How did the last presidential election get influenced, if it did, if we're all so hip to hacking. In other words the scale of it is what I don't think people appreciate. Most of us are not aware of the significance of the catastrophe that may result if we ignore this threat. It touches on a lot of topics that sometimes can feel like doom and gloom is there hope like when you're done watching Bill Nye Save The World. Are we left with hope that things can be better? You got to be optimistic, people, or you won't get anything done. You've got to think you can save the world or you won't. No, with the whole thing is optimistic, let's do something about this. But the first thing you wanna do in problem solving is? Identify the problem. Hone in on what it is you wanna fix, change, improve. I like that message, thank you Bill. Thank you Bridget, carry on everyone. [MUSIC]
