Ross and Burbank Show staff member to try pot now that it'll be legalon November 7, 2012 @ 10:10 am (Updated: 3:42 pm - 11/7/12 )
Ross and Burbank Show staff members says he's going to give it a try.
Host Luke Burbank thought this was something that would never happen.
"People, I don't think, start smoking pot because it's legal," said Burbank, in an early morning discussion of Tuesday night's election results.
But co-host Dave Ross said indeed one of the show's own staff members is now going to try it simply because it will soon be legal to do so.
"I have a source that tells me that somebody who has never smoked pot before is now going to try it for the first time," Ross said, introducing Associate Producer Nick, aka "Young Jeezy."
"Because it was illegal I never tried it," said Nick. "But now it's legal, I'm feeling, 'let's give it a shot.'"
Luke said he didn't think people like Nick, choosing not to smoke simply because it was illegal, existed.
"We all figured that everybody who is going to smoke pot would have smoked it already except for a bunch of rule-bound people who are probably so straight-laced they're too afraid to try it," said Dave.
Even now that it'll be legal, self-identified straight-laced Dave, said he won't be lighting up anytime soon.
"It messes with your brain man."
After explaining to Dave that he once didn't know the effects of alcohol until he tried it, Luke said he hopes pot use won't have any negative effects on Young Jeezy.
"If we lose our Associate Producer down a black hole of reefer madness off of this, I am really going to regret advocating for it."
