CNN Promotes the Use of Marijuana during New Year’s Eve Broadcast

And the folks at CNN wonder why their ratings continue to slide, why Fox News continues to be dominant, and why more Americans than ever before see the original cable news network as “fake news.”

CNN’s head honchos need look no further than their recent New Year’s Eve broadcast if they really want to understand why America is tired of their ridiculous behavior.

CNN correspondent Randi Kaye was covering the New Year celebration from Colorado, where marijuana seemed to play a central role in the celebrating.

Reporting live from the Mile High City, Kaye joined denizens of the Cannibus, a party bus loaded with marijuana enthusiasts, and showed off a gas mask bong to hosts Andy Cohen and Anderson Cooper via satellite.

After explaining how the bong worked (without partaking), Kaye handed it off to a local Denver citizen who showed the smoking apparatus in action, taking a mighty puff from the mask as Kaye lit the bowl. 

Kaye reminded host Anderson Cooper, and everyone watching, that marijuana was perfectly legal in Colorado (though still illegal federally) so technically she wasn’t engaging in anything illegal. But the legality of what she (and those around her) was doing wasn’t really the big question that should have been on CNN’s mind.

The morality, and the propriety of showcasing drug use (and even explaining how to partake) on a family broadcast of a New Year’s Eve celebration should have given the folks at CNN pause. But it didn’t, and they kept bringing Kaye back onto the broadcast to promote the use of marijuana… something that is illegal in most of the country.

Thankfully, some American still understand why CNN’s embrace of marijuana should have been offensive to most Americans… particularly parents.
