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.


Ever since recreational cannabis was legalized for adult consumption across Canada in mid-October the industry has been struggling to meet demand. And that's not going to change anytime soon, according to Prime Minister Justin Trudeau. In a recent interview, Trudeau admitted that the chronic cannabis supply shortages have been the biggest challenge the newly legalized industry has been facing.
