Giggling CNN correspondent gets ‘contact high’ while reporting on pot

contact-highAs the media continues to celebrate the legalization of recreational marijuana in Colorado, CNN took it to a whole other level when a giggling reporter, feeling the effects of a self proclaimed “contact high,” touted the effects of getting stoned.

In a series titled, “Gone To Pot,” host Anderson Cooper spoke of “gonja-preneurs” looking to cash in on the “ground breaking experiment.” He introduced reporter Randi Kaye, who was highlighting “Cannabis Tours,” a marijuana limo tour of dispensaries in Colorado.

Her report found her in the back of a limousine while several people smoked marijuana, and Kaye can be seen getting increasingly silly as she reported.

Cooper asked her how extensive her research in the back of the limo was, and Kaye, grinning ear to ear, said, “My brain was a little fuzzy by the time I got out of there.”

Anderson interjected to ask, “Really?”

“Oh yeah, I wasn’t thinking right, Kaye responded. “I couldn’t remember even some of the questions that I wanted to ask in the interview, which has never happened to me when I’m reporting in the field.”

“And I found things to be really funny, much funnier than I normally do, so I think we got a little bit of a contact high there,” she added.

Watch the video and see if you agree that CNN has certainly “gone to pot.”
