Doonesbury by Garry Trudeau for March 26, 1993
Zonker: Hope you like the brownies, Ed. I baked them myself. Ed: Thanks, "Zonker". You're a life-saver. Zonker: Well, what exactly does marijuana do for you, Ed? What's the deal? Ed: Well, I'm on AZT, which has some vicious side effects. The pot reduces the intense nausea and vomiting. It also helps prevent the wasting syndrome associated with AIDS, stimulating the appetite and hopefully extending life. Zonker: Wow...you think you know a drug... Ed: I can imagine, "Zonker".
