'Deepfake' is the name given to videos that have been created using artificial intelligence that are manipulated to show someone saying or doing something that never happened. Think of it like photoshopping someone’s face onto another picture, only in this case it's for videos.

Reefers.... Not so innocent as many believe them to be, though. I used to smoke them regularly for a time, when I was a college student. They ended up giving me two very nasty fear attacks. Never touched them again after the second.
