SNL Reveals New Head Of The DEA: Breaking Bad's Walter White

President-elect Donald Trump has appointed Walter White as head of the DEA - on Saturday Night Live, at least. Last weekend, Bryan Cranston dropped by NBC's Studio 8H to reprise his Breaking Bad role as a high school chemistry teacher turned meth dealer. And now turned drug enforcement czar on SNL.

"Trust me: I know the DEA better than anyone - inside and out," Cranston said during Saturday's sketch. And while the actor doesn't know as much about drugs as Walter White, he did learn a lot about drugs based on studying for that role. Producers brought in DEA agents to give Cranston a crash course in meth - including how to cook the illegal substance.

That means Cranston would probably be one of the more knowledgable members of the Trump Administration if he were offered a position. And he would arguably be a better choice to lead the DEA than current chief Chuck Rosenberg, who angered thousands of patients and advocates in November 2015 when he said that medical marijuana was a joke.

"What really bothers me is the notion that marijuana is also medicinal - because it's not," Rosenberg told reporters. "We can have an intellectually honest debate about whether we should legalize something that is bad and dangerous, but don't call it medicine - that is a joke."

Meanwhile, Cranston has joined the growing ranks of celebrities calling for marijuana legalization. So there you have it: reality is often more ridiculous than sketch comedy.
