Posted to Twitter in the summer of 2014, "Marijuana Simpson" is a Script Fic describing an Alternate Universe wherein Homer Simpson, his family, and the whole population of Springfield are massive stoners. Homer enjoys a comfortable life smoking the finest kush with his wife and children until 19 year-old Bart is suddenly drafted to fight in the Iraq War, setting off a chain of events that threatens to make Springfield a pot free town for good.
Marijuana Simpson contains examples of:
- Blue and Orange Morality: Springfield's culture is weed-oriented to the point of being bizarre.Flanders: My worth is not tied to how much weed I haveLisa: That's where you're wrong
- Canon Foreigner: The Simpsons now have a younger son, Ken, although he is quickly relegated to Butt-Monkey status.
- Catch-Phrase: Lisa constantly grouses that the family "used to smoke an ounce a day" after Homer and Bart's absence forces them to smoke increasingly lower quality bud.
- Cerebus Syndrome: Begins as a series of barely comprehensible tweets and quickly sprawls into a massive stoner epic, filled with character development, tragic events, and soliloquies.
- Crossover: Sonic the Hedgehog and Bender are inexplicably characters, among others.
- Downer Ending: Ken is murdered in prison, Maggie and Lisa are doomed to get hooked on crystal meth, Bart heads back into combat utterly broken, and Marge retreats into a a cannabis induced haze. Only Homer makes it out with any semblance of a happy ending, partly due to his embrace of Swisher Sweets cigars.
- Drugs Are Bad: The unlikely Aesop of the fic; Homer realizes that marijuana dependency is holding him and his family back and subsequently burns all of his pot and embraces the Roman Catholic Church.
- Greek Chorus: Lenny, Carl, and Moe serve as this.
- Replacement Flat Character: Like Lisa in the show, Maggie is politically conscientious, albeit a pothead, while her older sister is almost entirely concerned with smoking weed.
- Running Gag: "I fucked up."
- Shell-Shocked Veteran: After he returns from Iraq, Bart ultimately cannot readjust to the opulent, weed-centric lifestyle of the Simpsons.
- The Stoner: Absolutely everyone. Marge at one point gets so high she forgets Homer is her husband, not her father.
- Troubling Unchildlike Behavior: Maggie can't be older than ten, yet she still tokes with the rest of the Simpson Family.
- The War on Terror: Lisa identifies 9/11 as the beginning of the Simpsons' woes, and Bart is drafted to fight in the Iraq War (a conflict which Homer eventually ends after smoking with George W. Bush.)
