Talk about a kushy job.
Anderson Cooper dispatched Randi Kaye to Colorado to file a report on how Colorado's recent legalization of marijuana is working out.

Suffice to say her story is a feel-good one. Kaye, a longtime WCCO correspondent before going national with CNN in 2004, rides around town in some kind of pot party-limo with a 72-year-old named Barbara while she and her stoney-for-decades friends smoke joints "the size of small cannons," as Randi later described them to Anderson.

Here's a transcript of Cooper's ensuring line of questioning, followed by the raw video (fittingly, the transcribed portion begins right around the 4:20 mark):
Anderson: So Randi I gotta ask, um, how extensive was your research in the back of that limo?

Randi: You know, Anderson, it was top-notch. We did very extensive research. I have to tell you, my brain was a little fuzzy by the time I got out of there.

Anderson: Oh really?

Randi: Oh yeah! I wasn't thinking right. 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, um, much funnier than I normally do, so I think we got a little bit of a contact high there.

Anderson: But it was just a contact high, I just want to make that clear -- is that correct?

Randi, hesitating, with a stoned-looking smirk: Yes, it was just a contact [high], because they don't have vaporizers yet even though a lot of the companies want to use them... as you could see in that video there was a lot of smoke. So I don't know how those people did it, I really don't.


Randi saved her best for last. While signing off, she alluded to her CNN bosses and, with a mischievous smile, asked Anderson, "do you think they'll know?"
