CNN Reporter Rings In The New Year Aboard The 'Cannibus'

Ringing in the New Year by smoking lots of weed is nothing new. But smoking lots of weed live on CNN? That's quite a bit rarer.

That was the case during this year's CNN New Year's Eve Live 2018. Hosts Anderson Cooper and Andy Cohen - located in New York City - checked in with reporter Randi Kaye as she took a "canni-bus" through Denver, Colorado. Kaye, decked out in a very fitting pair of weed-leaf earrings, doesn't actually consume on camera. But she does seem to be....well, let's just say she seems very happy to be there. Take a look:

Fun fact: This wasn't Kaye's first time on the cannabis beat. Check out this report from Anderson Cooper 360, featuring Kaye reporting on a newly-legal Colorado.


Derived from the part of the cannabis plant that doesn't get you “high” like THC, cannabidiol (CBD) is typically used for health reasons instead of for recreational purposes, and has been found to be especially useful for treating symptoms of Parkinson’s disease. A challenging neurodegenerative disorder, Parkinson’s causes a combination of motor and non-motor symptoms — such as tremors, weakness, stiffness, dizziness, anxiety and sleeplessness — that affect daily life. CBD, typically taken in oil form, has the potential to relieve these symptoms, improving sleep, reducing inflammation and more, which can profoundly help the more than 10 million people across the world suffering.
