Videos of the Day: Saturday Night Live, Letterman bust on Colorado over weed

denver.post.marijuana.editor.saturday.night.live.jpg
Thank goodness Colorado voted to allow adults 21 and over to possess small amounts of marijuana. Otherwise, what would late night comedy shows do for material? In recent days, both Saturday Night Live and The Late Show with David Letterman featured prominent pot jokes aimed at the state we're in, with the former riffing on the Denver Post's search for a weed editor and the latter working the theme into a bit about a local dog signing up for Obamacare. On behalf of Colorado citizens: You're welcome, comedians! Check out both clips below: The SNL line is at about the one minute mark, whereas the Letterman item starts 28 seconds in.

Send your story tips to the author, Michael Roberts.

Aaron = lard assed pantywaste whose "rule" reigns supreme in some computer-simulated environment in some very obscure MMORPG fantasy world. Fucking DWEEB.

"You, the sheeple" didn't decide jack shit. Instead, "you, the sheeple" merely followed trends. Not too long ago, most of "We, the People" were against decriminalization. It wasn't until a mass marketing campaign by self-proclaimed "defenders of liberty" (the Mason Tverts of the world who actually support the WalMartization of the marijuana industry at the expense of local growers/distributors) coupled with the popularity of Mr. Hope & Change (who is actually one of the 21st century's biggest drug warriors) that finally shift the political winds into a different direction (though not necessarily more favourable), culminating with this otherwise pathetically weak version of decriminalization. Suckers.

....and you also voted for the schmucks that opposed it and continually attempt to undermine it. Hypocrisy: thy name is the American pseudo-left. Deal with it.

It's definitely funny... but only because the rest of the country makes a big deal about an issue that really isn't. Cheers Colorado.

Jeff Iddings = FB drama queen. Don't "threaten" to do it; just fucking do it, you little DWEEB.

It was a dumb joke.. seriously... It will still take some years before the overall opinion that weed is less harmful than booze is a reality...

Well..... We voted for it. Deal with it.

The jokes are as lame as Westword making us click through 5 pages for something it can post in one.

I don't know about the jokes, but this post is a bit repetitive and excessive. Cheers

When your governor references cheetos and goldfish when the amendment passed its hard not to get the stereotypes that come with this historic event.

It seems like both shows made jokes, like they always do. What do you think the writers are doing to make the jokes so funny?

@Sterling Meeks Cleary the mind set from smoking entirely too much for too long.

When you've has something to eat and clear up , please tell us who the pseudo-left is
