Puppet Advisor Pulls Strings At Medical Marijuana Company

NEW YORK (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Lots of corporations have puppet bosses but only Amigula, a New York-based medical marijuana company, is actually broadcasting that fact.

Amigula – which has patents on various products using marijuana for medical use – has just finished 15 episodes of a reality comedy series called Monkey Biz that centers around the company’s real-life CEO, W.B. Eugene, and his supposed business advisor, a puppet named “Montello.”

The show spoofs the problems of marketing medical marijuana, such as an episode about a cannabis cooking show that goes awry.

Eugene – who prefers to be called “Monkeypoo” – admits the show is off-the-wall but figures satire is necessary to take away the “sting” and controversy surrounding the subject.

Nevertheless, Monkey Biz does depict serious moments featuring real-life patients who need medicinal marijuana to survive.

Monkeypoo is hoping to sell his show to HBO or Cartoon Network but if those plans go up in smoke, he’ll run all 15 episodes as a series of infomercials.
