Dr. Drew opens the show sans Adam, he uses the “Get It on” intro and Chris steps in with the assist, and Bert Kreischer ‘The Machine’ himself chimes in asking how many books Adam has written now.
Finally Bert is on the ADS, now get him on ACS with Adam!
See Bert, Adam doesn’t give a shit about any old “this show, that show” drama, man he should’ve been on so much sooner.
Drew struggles to point out that Adam hasn’t included him in this book much like his movie ‘Road Hard’ and he then praises ‘Winning’ after lamenting that he was forced to sit through it “3 times.”
Bert brings up how busy Adam is and asks how someone like that manages, he shares his own reaction to Adam having so many shows and cites ‘PO’dcast with Dennis Miller’ Chris says the show is merely on hiatus.

So in reality Drew’s public/media take on pot had evolved before Rogan’s so it is total BS and a complete waste of time, Rogan is simply misunderstanding mechanisms of addiction that Drew studied in school and then essentially rewrote via his years of practice and specific approach to medicine.
Adam is describing the marijuana addiction patterns he’s seen maybe 4k or 5k times in various cases, He’s walking Bert through the process and the brain triggers that lead to this specific addiction.
