Colbert Talks About D.C. Legalizing

Stephen Colbert, host of the popular Comedy Central show The Colbert Report, offered his advice to President Obama now that the District of Colombia has voted to legalize marijuana.  Last Tuesday, 69 percent of voters headed to the polls to vote yes to legalizing cannabis and revamp the nation's capitol's marijuana laws.  Colbert took it upon himself to share his thoughts and opinions about the coming future now that cannabis is legal.

“You’re looking at two years of a Republican House and Senate,” Colbert said. “What’s the worst that could happen?  You get high, and nothing gets done.”  The audience laughed as he suggested that Obama and his family start growing marijuana plants in the First Garden.  According to Colbert, D.C. should now stand for "Dank Chronic."
