Gone To Pot American Road Trip
 
Episode 2
 
The magical marijuana mystery tour continues and this time Los Angeles, California and Colorado, home of the Rocky Mountains, play host to five household names as they eat, sleep and breathe cannabis culture…just who will put their marijuana where their mouth is? 
 
After apparently positive experiences using medical MJ for their various ailments, Biggins and Bobby are feeling the full effect of a little over-indulgence after a few too many medicated mouthfuls at Nonna Marijuana’s kitchen table, but as Biggins would say…the show must go on. 
 
Our gang of national treasures, Linda Robson, Pam St Clement, Christopher Biggins, John Fashanu and Bobby George, arrive in the City of Angels and settle into a suitably divine L.A. mansion before temporarily swapping the tour bus for Segways and taking in the famous Venice Beach
Boardwalk. 
 
While there, they spot yet more businesses trying to secure a slice of the ‘pot’ pie.
John Fashanu and Linda Robson, both parents themselves, meet a mum who claims medical marijuana has transformed her daughter’s life. It’s an emotional and opinion-changing experience for staunch drugs critic Fash. 
 
Later the group entertain at their Hollywood base where they meet a chef who uses marijuana in cakes. Will any of the celebrities be tempted to try them? And is that heavyweight boxer Audley Harrison helping with the BobbyQue - Bobby's very own brand of BBQ?
 
Finally, the Gone to Pot party make for their next destination, Colorado, the first state in the United States to legalise recreational use of marijuana, and where medical MJ is also perfectly legal, but they find that legalisation doesn't mean problem free as they don bullet-proof jackets and join a high-stakes high-drama Drug Enforcement Agency raid on a super-sized illegal marijuana grow worth a mind-blowing $3.9 million.
