In this case it’s Cheech Martin and Tommy Chong, long-time marijuana advocates who can’t afford sage seeds now that need for their work is diminishing.

Pot “used to be rebellious,” laments Cheech. “This news sucks.” Chong complains that even “John Boner” (Boehner) is no longer a convenient comic foil. But don’t worry. Martin, Chong and Colbert find plenty of other ways to be funny…as you might imagine.
