Somehow, CNN managed to top Don Lemon’s drunkenness on last year’s New Years Eve telecast. To ring in 2018, they showed people at a Colorado pot party live on national television! Should CNN be punished for this? Watch the video and vote in our CBC reader poll below!

Roger, I agree with you 100%. If history is honest, Obama will go down in history as one of, if not the worst president in history. Thank GOD Trump is in the process of correcting the damage done during the past 8 years.

Beth G. Seriously, your ignorance astounds me. Steve Bannon could not stand that he could not push his extreme right-wing agenda on Trump and Kushner. This is what this is about. GOD does not make mistakes. He put Trump there. All you Never Trumpers will get real and realize that one day. I will call Trump out when I think he is wrong just as I am calling you and your Never Trumper friends out now! Oh and BTW, I am just absolutely crushed by your sarcasm. LOL

I do not like to lecture people because that is not my job. I do like to inform people of correct information. Let’s get down to the real crux of this matter. There are two different types of people who smoke marijuana or do drugs in our society. Although, I think the medicinal benefits may be there for some people, the truth is that marijuana is NOT a harmless drug. It can damage brain matter especially in children over time. Although the data and studies are not finished, they are leaning in that direction. When CNN normalizes this behavior they are giving children the ok to engage in this dangerous behavior and causing irreparable damage to their precious brains. Remember they are our future.
The first group of people who do drugs are the elitists, spoiled rotten brats who have nothing better to do. Their parents could have gotten them into this or not. They should go to the Ukraine and do missions where they will discover thousands of homeless children of drug addicts who choose to live by the warm steam pipes of the underground sewer system than live with their drug-addicted, abusive parents. I do not have sympathy for this group of idiots.
The second group in our society I do have great empathy for. There is an epidemic of anxiety, depression, bipolar disorder, and many other mental health defects in our country today. Marijuana can exacerbate the situation ten fold. The marijuana of today can be laced with very dangerous chemicals that cause psychosis in some people. I do not wish to be on the road with these people as many fatalities will occur because they are behind the wheel stoned out of their minds. The stats are not in on this yet, but they are leaning this way where marijuana has been legalized as well. The real problem is that these people are using the drugs to numb themselves from the realities of their personal lives. This is sad. Every child should learn coping mechanisms when they are young to help them deal with the many difficulties of life. I have never needed drugs to help me cope with the many difficult times in my life. I learned at a very early age to turn to Jesus for my comfort in the tough times. He helps me through every situation. People need to seek counseling to cope with life. Parents need to learn how to teach their children coping mechanisms early in life. This will eliminate quite a few of the suicides and drug use in our society. Take them to homeless shelters and food pantries to let them know that life is harsh. Teach them to volunteer from an early age. This will help them to obtain a reality check at a very early age. It will also help them to cope with their own issues.
There is a third component to this story. The liberals in the government see the drug legalization as a very lucrative tax revenue for their states. They are willing to overlook the dangers to the American citizens to obtain this dirty money. What is the difference in the cigarette industry, which has killed millions of people through various diseases, for profit? This is wrong on every level and anyone trying to justify it is not being honest with themselves or any one else. They are clearly motivated by money or their own desire to escape from the harsh realities of life.

Yes they should be punished exposing our children to such irresponsible behavior. DUI IS DUI, wether alcohol or pot. Hopefully no one I know is harmed because stupid people made a drug legal.

Laura, wrong. Obama was not a terrible president. He was the most corrupt, UnAmerican, terrorist loving president ever! Muslim brotherhood, the Cuba scum brothers, prostrating himself at the Iran meeting(so hilarious all the networks covered it up and did not show the meeting). Giving them 150 BILLION IN CASH to fund Hezbollah.
Then there is his oppressive America hating regulations. He was anti Military, anti business, anti energy, anti police. Just plain anti American. Trump FIXED the regulations-GONE. Strong leadership AGAIN around the world. 25% rise in the stock market, lowest unemployment in 20 years, highest business confidence in 20 years, highest consumer confidence in 20 years. And all these chicken littles saying the sky is falling? No, it fell for 8 miserable, horrible years. It is now stopped and anyone with a brain can not say different. MAGA!!!!

Laura , Trump should give you a cabinet position. Sounds like you’ll be his last big fan after the Russia thing goes down. Even crap bag Bannon jumped ship.
We Republicans just need to admit we made a mistake and start grooming our next candidate.
January 3, 2018,4:16 pm
No. I’m a republican that still believes in the 1st amendment. I don’t care what the left liberals think. They should legalize and reap the benefits of it. It would also cut down on jail cost.
January 3, 2018,11:58 am
Dave, your party has taken a major commie left turn. Get your head out of the sand. Obama would have taken every one’s guns if they allowed him too while he is protected with guns. He was a terrible president. I don’t like all of Trump’s tweets either, but at least I am capable of being honest. You people are so blinded by your hatred of Trump that you don’t know what is going on in the world today. It is o.k. GOD is making his children aware of what is occurring in this country right now. Obama’s disciples will never be honest about what a terrible president he was. They are not capable of doing that. It is sad and pathetic.
January 3, 2018,11:12 am
I’d like to see all of Trumps tweets posted for comment too! Now that’s worth commenting on. He’s lost his marbles. He doesn’t even make sense. And he tweets about unimportant things way too much. And please stop fighting with North Korea like s child on Twitter. Drop the “rocket man” reference it makes you sound like s name calling child.
Colorado just needs to crack down on pot related driving ( and measure it at the time) – just like every state had to do with alcohol- before the 80’s no one even talked about drinking and driving or wore a seatbelt for that matter.
Some Democrats support communist views , some support socialist views, many don’t support either. Lumping all into the same category is not accurate. Just like lumping all Republicans the same is not accurate. We all have varying opinions to varying degrees on different subjects.
Commies never took over America and Obama never tried to take our guns.
Policies aside At least Obama could communicate appropriately and with dignity, Trump is a train wreck. What a joke.

Catherine, the statistics are not in on the marijuana craze quite yet, however, the traffic fatalities have so far increased dramatically since marijuana was legalized in Colorado. Make sure you speak from an informed point of view before you make yourself look silly. Bill, there is just no hope for you dude. Wake up! The American people ARE taking their country back from the commies as we speak.
January 3, 2018,8:46 am
Ty, grow up, CBC can do anything they want. It is still a free country in spite of people trying to turn it communist (Democrats). I dare you to step up and be honest for the first time in your life. The left are MAJOR lunatics who need to be in counseling and on lithium treatments.
CNN has proven by its cop bashing stories and B.S. reporting that it has no respect for the law. Even if it is legal where they did the story to smoke marijuana, it does not make it right. They have had Kathy Griffin flashing Anderson Cooper in previous years. There are no bounds to their total disregard for normal human behavior. I would have never let my children watch their network when they were little. They are just so idiotic. There is no couth there whatsoever. People should call them the no-class network. Wow, they are amazingly despicable and depraved. Anyone defending them must subscribe to the same mentality and you need serious help.
January 3, 2018,8:42 am
CBC I dare you to stop posting small silly stories and put Trumps tweets up – all of them, don’t cherry pick- for discussion on this site.
For example today he tweeted that under his watch there were no commercial aviation deaths. There hasn’t been a commercial aviation death for years ! But he is the master of selling people the idea that he is doing something .
He’s an absolute lunatic – look at his tweets he makes no sense at all
Nut job Trump
January 3, 2018,2:19 am
It is legal in Colorado. What the problem?
Alcohol is far worse than pot.
Research all the types of weed including CBD oil that helps people get in pain etc.
I don’t use it, I’m in Colorado. I know several people who use it for medical reasons.
CBC get a life you squares
January 3, 2018,1:33 am
Let’s deal with something important like returning the power to the American People by wresting it from our evil masters.
January 2, 2018,8:01 pm
Punished? How? Why? For reporting on the fact that marijuana is legal under state law in Colorado? For showing that people get together and party on New Year’s Eve? Are you people serious?
The federal government made marijuana illegal based on lies as to its effects. The war on drugs was primarily done as a tool to go after the “colored folk” and the hippies (check the Nixon tapes).
You CBC folk really ought to rename yourselves. You are not conservative in the political sense at all. States’ Rights People! Perhaps you should be called the OPA Old Prudes of America, you have no appreciation for the First Amendment or for States Rights.
January 2, 2018,7:34 pm
The absolutely BEST way to punish these unprofessional idiots would be for everyone to simply stop watching. They’ve proven AGAIN that the lowest know no limits to their depths. This is waaaaaaaaaaaay beyond pathetic. I’m almost ashamed to admit I’m a transplant to Colorado. All that keeps me from puking is that I voted against that pot law and I know it wasn’t just those here in state, but those bussed in from out of state as well.
January 2, 2018,7:12 pm
CNN should be punished every hour of everyday until infinity!!!! Got that.
January 2, 2018,6:34 pm
CNN has gone too far. They should be banned from the air. Children should be allowed to have a childhood and not be subjected to any immoral or harmful pastimes or lifestyles. Let them have a carefree childhood like you had. Stop trying to foist your crazy beliefs and actions on them until they are old enough to make an educated choice.
January 2, 2018,6:14 pm
Well funny it’s ok for all the Alcohol commercials, And all the Transgender and Gay shows on Television today that’s telling our children hey it’s ok, Why not be Gay as these people are. Marijuana isn’t man made! This should be legal in all 50 States. There’s plenty of benefits to be used and the big Pharmaceutical industry doesn’t want to have this and Its been around longer than anybody alive today and will be for eternity, It was put hear and has been used for thousands of years and when it was marked as illegal in 1937, Because it was described as a drug that made people crazy, Perhaps the person who declared that would benefit from this, Its something that should not be filling up prisons, And this could be Taxed and the Police could worry more about the hard drugs, The Man made ones not God made, It will eventually be legal so why not now, I’m not a smoker but if this can lower crime rates and lower my Taxes then I’m all for this.
January 2, 2018,5:40 pm
CNN has become a place of silly trivialities all driven by its Trump derangement syndrome. Trump lives rent free in the heads of CNN
January 2, 2018,5:14 pm
Hey Suzanne I agree. And I can attest that CNN will get much worse…..
January 2, 2018,4:52 pm
maybe not punished, but it does not seem appropriate given its illegal status under Federal law. I was not watching this on New Year’s Eve anyway and glad I did not see this
January 2, 2018,4:49 pm
Sorry, nothing wrong, or unhealthy about weed. Exponentially better for you than the poison Big Pharma shoves down people’s throats.
January 2, 2018,4:38 pm
They should be kicked off the air and closed down.
January 2, 2018,4:25 pm
I never saw her use the pot, did I miss something
January 2, 2018,4:23 pm
Is “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri” worth the Oscar hype — or is it being promoted to spread an anti-conservative, anti-police message?
“We want immigration. But we want to vet these people. We want to know who they are and make sure they are going to be productive people. People who are flourish in America, who are going to not be terrorists, not be criminals.”
“It’s unconscionable, to watch the mob media do what they’re doing. Last week we were told the president was mentally unstable. For months before that we’re told he’s colluding with the Russians. Today we are told he’s a racist.”
DHS is considering charging sanctuary city leaders for flouting deportation laws. Should sanctuary city leaders face criminal charges? Vote now in our poll!
