The Simpsons seems to have a serious eye for the future.
In 2005, the show released an episode called Midnight RX that dealt with the rising cost of prescription medication in the USA. Homer and company cross the border from Springfield into Canada (exactly where is Springfield, anyway?) and meet a Canadian counterpart of Ned Flanders, who offers the group a hit of his “reeferino.”
“It’s legal here,” he says.
Either the Simpsons is the government or the world just loves them so much that we actually follow their footsteps https://t.co/9RWnVekDxt

In news that continues to surprise, but probably shouldn't, The Simpsons has been outed as correctly predicting the future once again – this time relating to Canada's recent law change involving the recreational use of cannabis. https://t.co/vphgeDnvA6

One of the other major Simpsons predictions that has come true? None other than the prediction that Donald Trump would be the United States President.
It’s a little scary how prophetic The Simpsons is.

Everyone says the Simpsons predict the future…my girl is watching an old episode with Homer and guest Ray Romano, and Homer says they finish each other’s sandwiches. Hello, Frozen.
