Stephen Colbert Gets Playful with Michigan's Pot Vote

Michigan is the 10th state to legalize recreational marijuana.

And that wasn't lost with Stephen Colbert, who remarked during his CBS opening monologue Wednesday night: 

"And in Michigan they voted to legalize recreational marijuana. Now, to celebrate Michigan turned their mitten into a bong. The new state slogan: Hittin' the Mitten." 

The comment is accompanied by a clever graphic. Watch the video (It starts around the 3:06 mark).

Over at "The Tonight Show," NBC host Jimmy Fallon quipped:

"Yesterday, Michigan, Missouri and Utah all legalized weed. When they heard that, Michigan and Missouri were like: 'Damn, Utah, I didn’t know you partied like that.'"
