Late Show: Stephen Colbert spoofs Colorado pot bars

Posted on

In light of Denver, Colorado, allowing citizens to enjoy marijuana in bars and restaurants under restrictive circumstances, Late Show host Stephen Colbert offered the state’s tourism bureau a hypothetical (and totally fake) ad to promote the new law. 

According to the Associated Press, patrons can use pot in these kinds of public spaces — including art galleries and yoga studios — as long as the marijuana isn’t smoked and the location receives the consent of the neighbors. Though, certain locations will be allowed to permit smoking under certain circumstances. 

“Waiters at Denver restaurants will now say, ‘Uh, do you want fries with that?’ and, ‘Do you wanna get fried with that?'” Colbert joked before screening the fake ad for “Chronic.” It even comes with a catchy tune, beginning with, “Making your way in the world today takes everything you got. Take a break from all your worries, relax, and smoke some pot.” 

Watch the spoof in the video below.
