“I just want to point out, that this is all legal in Colorado,” host Anderson Cooper told co-host Andy Cohen.
While Kaye did not appear to partake in any drug use herself, Twitter users provided commentary as she rode a pot bus, which took revelers to various pot-related stops, including a marijuana grow house.
Not everyone was loving CNN’s cannabis-friendly coverage. Some people online noted their distaste of the report.
Our society is doomed… Randi Kaye is presumably smoking weed on live tv at a Pot & Paint party in Denver to celebrate legalized recreational marijuana…
But at least Kathy Griffin isn’t on… #CNNNYE

Can someone explain why CNN is showing people smoking weed with a bong??!! My kids are watching this for the ball drop and I had to turn it all off! Obviously, they have no idea what to do with the show without Kathy Griffin.
