The newly released Episode 2 of "Medicare Mermaids," a satirical new political web series which debuted earlier this month, deals with medical marijuana -- as in, the mermaids get blunt about Republicans out to kill their buzz.
LB Zimmerman stars as "Rozzie Mendlebaum" and Susan J Sommer stars as "Sheila Rabinowitz" in "Medicare Mermaids." Each episode runs under 4 minutes and addresses the issues from a progressive perspective with humor and insight.
"We're thrilled that over 10,000 people have watched Episode 1 on Facebook and YouTube and would like to thank all our viewers and supporters," said LB Zimmerman, creator/writer/"Rozzie Mermaid. "I think Episode 2 will strike a chord with many Americans who think our country's laws about marijuana need to be changed, despite what Trump-supporter, Governor Chris Christie says and thinks.
Episode 2 takes on the issue of legalizing Medical Marijuana and addresses the absurdity that it is considered a Schedule I narcotic by the DEA. Episode 3 will debut on April 11, and it deals with Climate Change, which greatly affects Mermaids and Humans alike.
On "Medicare Mermaids" Mondays (every other Monday) there will be a new episode with Rozzie and Sheila tackling the political issues in their unique way, with humor and intelligence.
Progressive and liberal, Rozzie and Sheila tackle big issues like protecting Medicare, gun control, marijuana legalization, climate change and a Mermaid's "right to choose."
