WELCOME BACK, THANKS SOMUCH.

LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, MYFIRST SHOW OF 2014, AND IN

THIS NEW YEAR ALL OF US AREMAKING NEW AREA'S

RESOLUTIONS.

PERSONALLY I JOINED AGYM-BORE.

I USUALLY DO SIX REPS OFPARACHUTES AND TWO SETS OF

BOUNCEY BALL FCHLOE IS NOTHOGGING IT.

I'M COOLING DOWN HERE, CHLOE,LET ME WORK IN.

BUT FOLKS, WHILE I'M OUTTHERE GETTING SKINNY,

AMERICA'S DEVIANTS AREROLLING A FATTIE, JIM?

>> SOME COLORADOANS HAVE ALOT TO CELEBRATE ON JANUARY

1st.

COLORADO BECAME THE FIRSTSTATE IN THE NATION TO ALLOW

THE SALE OF MARIJUANA FORRECREATIONAL USE AND

HUNDREDS LINED UP TO GET IT.

>> $1 MILLION OFRECREATIONAL MARIJUANA

REPORTEDLY SOLD THERE ONWEDNESDAY ALONE.

>> Stephen: A MILLIONDOLLARS OF POT IN ONE DAY.

OTHERWISE KNOWN AS A FULLNELSON.

NATION, THIS NEWS, THIS NEWSNAUSEATED ME SO MUCH THAT I

MIGHT QUALIFIED FOR MEDICALMARIJUANA.

CAN SOMEONE CHECK ON THAT.

YOU CAN GET ON THAT.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

AMERICA'S MORAL CORPS ISBEING GUTTED AND THE REST OF

OUR MORAL APPLE IS BEINGMADE INTO A BONG.

HOW DARE, HOW DARECOLORADOANS SPEND JANUARY

1st RUINING THEIR BODIESWITH WEED WHEN THEY SHOULD

BE AT HOME VOMITING ALL THEBOOZE FROM NEW YEAR'S EVE

LIKE GOD INTENDED.

AND THANKFULLY-- (APPLAUSE)

YES.

WE HAVE SOME VOMIT FANS HERETONIGHT THANKFULLY SOME

PATRIOTS ARE STANDING UP ANTHEY'RE NOT JUST IGNORANT

BUZZ KILLS THEY'REEXPERIENCED BUZZ KILLS LIKE

"NEW YORK TIMES" COLUMNISTDAVID BROOKS WHO WROTE FOR A

LITTLE WHILE IN MY TEENAGEYEARS MY FRIENDS AND I

SMOKED MARIJUANA.

IT WAS FUN.

I HAVE SOME FOND MEMORIES OFUS ALL BEING SILLY TOGETHER.

I THINK THOSE MOMENTS OFUNINHIBITIED FROLIC DEEPENED

OUR FRIENDSHIP.

YES.

DAVID BROOKS GOT HIGH.

WHICH LEAD TO UNINHIBITIEDFROLIC.

SOMETIMES IT BORDERED ONUNSTRUCTURED MERIMENT, EVEN

UNFETTERED JOCULARITY.

BUT THIS COLUMN WAS MORETHAN JUST ESTABLISHING HIS

STONE-COLD STREET CRED.

HE ALSO RAPPED SOME POSITIVEYOUTH MESSAGING ABOUT THE

DANGERS OF LEGALLIZATIONSAYING I THINK BEING STONED

IS NOT A PARTICULARLYUPLIFTING FORM OF PLEASURE

AND SHOULD BE DISCOVERAGEDMORE THAN ENCOURAGED.

AND THAT COLORADO ISNURTURING A MORAL ECOLOGY IN

WHICH IT IS A BIT HARDER TOBE THE SORT OF PERSON MOST

OF US WANT TO BE.

SO LET THAT BE A LESSON TOYOU KIDS.

YOU KEEP SMOKING WEED, YOUKEEP RAPPING WITH YOUR

FRIENDS, YOU'LL NEVER GROWUP TO BE DAVID BROOKS.

AND DAVID'S NOT THE ONLYFORMER POT HEAD WHO WANTS TO

KEEP WEED ILLEGAL.

SO DOES "THE WASHINGTONPOST" RUTH MARCUS WHO WROTE

IN AN OP ED, OUR KIDS WILLNOT BE BETTER OFF WITH

ANOTHER LEGAL MIND ALTERINGSUBSTANCE.

WELL SAID.

KIDS DON'T NEED ANOTHERLEGAL MIND ALTERING

SUBSTANCE, IN SCHOOL WITHTHEIR ATEROL.

AND LIKE BROOKS, FOLKS, RUTHADMITS TO BEING MORE THAN

JUST ROOMMATES WITH HERFRIEND MARY JANE CONFESSING

I HAVE DONE MY SHARE OFINHALING.

NEXT TIME I'M IN COLORADO IEXPECT I WILL CHECK OUT SOME

BUBBA KUSH.

WHY NOT.

WHY NOT.

OTHER THAN THE COLUMN YOUJUST WROTE.

I APPLAUD MARCUS AND BROOKSFOR TAKE A STIRM STANCE

AGAINST LEGALIZING THE POTTHEY SMOKED.

I ASSUME THEY'RE GOING TOTURN THEMSELVES INTO THE

POLICE NOW AND SERVE THEIRKIND HOPEFULLY THAT WILL

KEEP THEM FROM EVER SMOKINGAGAIN BECAUSE THEY MIGHT GET

HIGH AND WRITE SOMETHINGREALLY CONFUSING.

WELL AN RIGHT BACK
