Journalist Randi Kaye joined marijuana enthusiasts in Denver during this year’s annual coverage.

CNN anchor Randi Kaye rang in the New Year from Denver on Sunday’s NYE coverage on the news network.

Reporting live from the Mile High City, Kaye joined denizens of the Cannibus , a party bus loaded with marijuana enthusiasts, and showed off a gas mask bong to hosts Andy Cohen and Anderson Cooper via satellite.

After explaining how the bong worked (without partaking), Kaye handed it off to a local Denver citizen who showed the smoking apparatus in action, taking a mighty puff from the mask as Kaye lit the bowl.

Kaye was quick to assure Cooper and Cohen that marijuana use was legal in Denver.

Later in the broadcast, Kaye reported from a “puff, pass and paint party” where she appeared on-air holding a burning joint, though she did not take a pull from it. Kaye traversed the party, chatting with smokers painting their works and holding her own joint.

CNN Rang in the New Year with a Ton of Weed

CNN went hard this New Year’s Eve. Not only did the news channel turn up with reporters Don Lemon and Brooke Baldwin during its nationwide New Year’s Eve coverage, but it added another substance to the mix.

To celebrate legal weed in states across the country, CNN sent journalist Randi Kaye to Denver to see how stoners get down on NYE. Donning some pot leaf earrings, the reporter was passed endless joints and bowls during a “cannibus” ride, discovered gas mask bongs, and may have contacted a nice secondhand high at a pot and paint party (since she didn’t partake on camera).

To ring in the new year, Desus and Mero tuned into the coverage and wondered if CNN was changing its name to the “Cannabis News Network.”
