NOT EVERYONE in Chitown likes the idea of legal marijuana.

The only Mary Jane I like to see is the 👧 in Spider-Man.

USA Yesterday: Weed will kill you
USA Today: Weed cures cancer

P.s That sketch was the dumbest thing I've seen this year

Finally, Chicago can chill out.

judyxo · January 8, 2020 at 11:42 am

We are going to need weed, lots of it, to get through this tRump presidency. VOTE the corrupt GOP out of office

Igor Schmidlapp · January 8, 2020 at 12:12 pm

This episode was taped after the Lincoln assassination… we note that because it's still "too soon"…

Frank Advice · January 8, 2020 at 12:14 pm

A weed joke without some bs drug war propaganda? Steven must have let that one slip through.

ignacio meteors · January 8, 2020 at 12:30 pm

What about the Black"high flying"hawks?

Concerned Citizen · January 8, 2020 at 12:41 pm

Too bad dispensary prices are 200% of black market.

Mich V · January 8, 2020 at 12:47 pm

Even if you immigrate to Chicago from another country, you end up with our wonderful accent "Chicawgo" 🤷🏻‍♀️

Varler · January 8, 2020 at 12:51 pm

I'm from Chicago, and that was hilarious.

robert lavedas · January 8, 2020 at 12:53 pm

so you get to pay 300+$ a oz now too, for cbd dope that don't get your dog high, congrats, lol.

MagnuMagnus · January 8, 2020 at 1:50 pm

I wish people would stop calling it "marijuana."
It's a derogatory term designed to demonize it.
It should be called "cannabis."

Sewer Daddy · January 8, 2020 at 1:56 pm

Joke all you want but this is a serious move against crime and violence. Wonderful news and i am happy to hear that we are closer to having peace in Chicago.

Why do they sound like there from the Bronx lol

Clay Loomis · January 8, 2020 at 2:36 pm

The ad that played before this clip was for Round Table stuffed crust pizza. That's a well-targeted ad. Hit the stoners with ads for munchies.

Dave Gordon · January 8, 2020 at 2:49 pm

You know I'm from Chicago my whole life and I don't think I've ever heard anybody talk like that ever! LOL it must have been from back in the day or something where maybe you don't win Babe Ruth was around people talked like that but hell no not now not even close. I think the only thing is the way that we pronounce our A's a little more high and pronounced then any other area in the country but its a very typical midwestern accent

Slow&Low · January 8, 2020 at 3:06 pm

Pot Dog…lol

Matti F · January 8, 2020 at 3:29 pm

Brian Stack’s writing is dated and unfunny, this show would be better without his greasy fingerprints all over it

Asa Coe · January 8, 2020 at 3:44 pm

Colorado proud here. Welcome to the club.

Fun Fact: There is actually a Portillo's on South Pulaski Road

Trogg · January 8, 2020 at 4:16 pm

Congratulations Illinois ! Enjoy what should have been done decades ago.

James Harris · January 8, 2020 at 4:22 pm

I hear pot sales are tanking mainly because the commercially legal stuff is about twice the price of the black market stuff. Did politicians not realize people can just grow their own?

M M · January 8, 2020 at 4:29 pm

Happy Pizza in Cambodia led the way….

Hehe.  Looks like Vienna Beef just got some serious competition!  😀

I am now officially surrounded by legal states here in Communist Indiana a seed or a stem gets you thrown in jail. F#cking bullshit. Im happy for everyone else that is aloud to legally get it. Legal or illegal I'll still do it till the day I die 420 for life.

Never thought I'd worry about weed being too high in cholesterol and sodium.

No one in Chicago talks like that. Not anyone born in the last 50yrs anyway. 😂

Anthony M · January 8, 2020 at 5:45 pm

so cool that you make fun of working class people.

Raditude · January 8, 2020 at 5:53 pm

I don’t think the writers of this skit realized that primo chronic is weed with cocaine on it.

Fauler Perfektionist · January 8, 2020 at 6:01 pm

People waiting in line in the cold? Goodness. You would almost think it's tobacco or something.

better.øff'd · January 8, 2020 at 6:11 pm

16 hours in the cold though?! Is there no black market in Chicago???

Jacob Oakley · January 8, 2020 at 6:24 pm

I’m from Chicago. I hope I don’t sound like that? Do I sound like that? Oh no 😟

Mellie036 · January 8, 2020 at 6:26 pm

The 11th state already? Here in the Netherlands we're soo behind on you guys. Despite what everyone thinks, it's still illegal here.

dizolv R · January 8, 2020 at 6:31 pm

Dumb

Rik Marston Official · January 8, 2020 at 6:34 pm

Perfection! I love it! A+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Rae Lynn · January 8, 2020 at 6:37 pm

I keep wondering how much of this was from Stephen's years of living in Chicago, and how much is from Saturday Night Live skits, because I spent a lot of time in Chicago in the 70's and 80's and back then this would have been a fairly accurate rendition of a typical commercial with some minor obvious differences of course. 🙂 Thanks for the memories!

Willie Growit · January 8, 2020 at 7:04 pm

TheRanugad · January 8, 2020 at 9:21 pm

my friends and I came up with this little ditty back in the 70s. no copyright as far I know – you should know what tune to sing it to:

Roll Roll Roll a doobie, twist it up at the ends

Spark it up, toke it up, pass it to your friends

Leather Pants Guy · January 8, 2020 at 9:53 pm

OK boomer

Steve Andrews · January 8, 2020 at 10:05 pm

Holy shit this is stupid, it’s like it came straight from the early 90’s.

J · January 8, 2020 at 10:22 pm

Chicago / Illinois really needed this shit. Way too much pointless death. Let's see what the next 5 years bring for the State.

Herb Nichols · January 8, 2020 at 11:09 pm

This is particularly hilarious to us old displaced Portillo's fans!! 😂🤣😂🤣

Benjamin Dupuis · January 8, 2020 at 11:18 pm

GravitySloth · January 8, 2020 at 11:46 pm

Portillo's is great when you're high, appropriately enough

Muddy Ruckus · January 8, 2020 at 11:57 pm

Pot has always been legal, it is your government that has been illegal.

Andrew Zegel · January 9, 2020 at 5:21 am

As a Chicagoan, medical patient, and Colbert fan. I could not approve more of this very official message! 😂 I was hoping he’d mention it.

Jane Guarnera · January 9, 2020 at 6:08 am

Illinois., now that it is providing to your tax base..Gonna pardon the folks sittin' in your prison system for growin', distribution and the use of…? Just wonderin….

It's a good thing we're open late 😉

Ok that super fans reference killed me.

Fred Rogers · January 9, 2020 at 4:29 pm

evanston is putting on a tax and the revenue goes exclusively to blacks i urge people to not buy any herb from evanston unless it on the black market.

Mario Godoy · January 9, 2020 at 4:40 pm

hilarious!!

SuperKing604 · January 9, 2020 at 5:03 pm

Druggies finally get there little drug legally now

Juicexlx · January 9, 2020 at 6:29 pm

I've had the privilege to get a ''feel-around-pat-down'' by TSA at the Chicago's airport, because I went, outside to smoke a cigarette (my next plane to California was delayed for about 4 hours), because I could have been ''presumably'' smoking weed even though I don't & never will. The poor TSA woman was just doing her job, but the kicker is that I insisted on having her pat me down in public while she was insisting that we go in some back office. She was obviously nervous and I was quite amused with my own joke of welcoming the whole process with open arms…Lolll! Yeah, those French Québécoises have no shame! Lollll! Anyway, good on ya'all Illinois! Congratulations from the True North! ;P

apathy2673 · January 9, 2020 at 7:40 pm

Brian Stack will always be Artie Kendall to me 🙁

eliotno3 · January 9, 2020 at 8:08 pm

Deep down Stephen will always look back with fondness on his years spent in Chicago 😎

Don't Bogart that dog!

Dale B · January 10, 2020 at 3:31 am

As a lifelong Chicagoan, lover of Portillo’s and other Chicago good and bad moments. This Stephen Colbert Show skit about Illinois’ recently legalized marijuana is absolutely roll on the floor laughing funny. Nice job guys.

Randall Chase · January 10, 2020 at 4:26 am

I grew up in Illinois. This is so spot on!

bernadette lettner · January 10, 2020 at 5:33 am

This is wonderful. That jingle is perfect also. Already stuck in my head and I've only heard it once.

Stan Current · January 10, 2020 at 7:58 am

At least it's legal, even for those who live in rural areas where it grows by the side of the road.

EloquentTroll · January 10, 2020 at 8:05 am

Cannabis infused bratwurst would make me the mom from "What's Eating Gilbert Grape".

Olga Rhodes · January 10, 2020 at 9:00 am

😎💞✌🚬🌿

TheCircle000 · January 10, 2020 at 9:02 am

It cracks me up seeing how non-Chicagoans see Chicago. Portillo’s doesn’t even sell brats (except for its Wisconsin locations) or pizza. That run at the end was very reminiscent of tacky local CHICAGO area commercials of the 80s and 90s. Good material.

Peter Pinto · January 10, 2020 at 4:02 pm

chicago chasing all of canada for legalization of MJ…

Hate this Liberal guys show, but this skit is funny. Grew up with the Portillo family. They were great people. Went to school with their oldest son Mike.

Mr. Bong · January 12, 2020 at 8:30 am

They need to legalize it in Texas

I love Lasagna · January 13, 2020 at 4:17 am
