In an interview with Rep. Rick Larsen (D-Wash.), Stephen Colbert noted that Washington is one of the few states that has a medical marijuana program.
“Your state is one of the few that has a medical marijuana program,” Colbert said to Congressman Rick Larsen, from Washington.
Larsen: Uh-huh, that’s right.
Colbert: Are you high right now?
Rep. I am not, nor have I ever been.
Colbert: I didn’t ask that part. You jumped to that pretty quickly. Seems like he doth protest too much. Are you going to tell me you didn’t kill anyone next? ‘I don’t know where the murder weapon is.’ That’s what that sounded like to me.
Larsen: I can understand what you’re saying.
Colbert: Can you? Because sometimes it can impair your hearing if you smoke dope.
