Colo. Senate pres.: 'Please douse doobies'

Feb. 13, 2013 at 6:41 PM

DENVER, Feb. 13 (UPI) -- The entire Senate chamber in the Colorado Capitol smelled strongly of marijuana Wednesday, lawmakers said.

John Morse, the Senate president, asked during the session, "Do you smell marijuana in here, or is it just me?" thereby cracking up his fellow lawmakers, KMGH-TV reported in Denver.

The TV station did not report whether the legislators' giggling was due to a collective contact high.

"If the sergeants would please douse all the doobies in the area," Morse's voice was heard asking on a recording of the morning's session.
