Watch Stephen Colbert Mock Jeff Sessions' Marijuana Rhetoric

Attorney General Jeff Sessions rankled the cannabis community last week by saying that marijuana was "only slightly less awful" than heroin. So Late Show host Stephen Colbert tore into Sessions' cannabis rhetoric during his monologue on Tuesday.

"Sure, marijuana's only slightly less awful than heroin - like how burning your tongue on hot cocoa is only slightly less awful than being set on fire," he said. 

Check out Colbert's prescription for helping Sessions mellow out on marijuana.


Rep. Tim Ryan (D-OH) isn't the most vocal cannabis advocate on the 2020 presidential campaign trail, but you shouldn't take that as a lack of support for marijuana legalization. Unlike many of the top contenders for the upcoming Democratic primaries, Ryan hasn't filed any of his own cannabis legalization bills.
