Jimmy Kimmel Addresses Marijuana Legalization at White House Correspondents' Dinner

Jimmy Kimmel sparked the most appropriate dinner table conversation while at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner Saturday night: the legalization of marijuana. “What is with the marijuana crackdown? Seriously, what is the concern? We will deplete the nation's Funyun supply?” Kimmel joked. “Pot smokers vote too. Sometimes a week after the election, but they vote.”
Kimmel continued to steal the show, asking everyone in the room to raise their hand if they had never smoked weed before. When only a few hands when up, Kimmel spoke directly to President Barack Obama and said, “Marijuana is something that real people care about.”
While there’s been a recent nationwide crackdown on medical marijuana producers, President Obama says he would entertain a debate about drug legalization. Following Kimmel’s speech, a deputy for Attorney General Eric Holder said that there’s no designated war on medical marijuana, but individual clinics were breaking state and federal laws.
Between Kimmel’s speech, Obama’s Jeezy shout out, and the numerous Instagram pics, it appears as though the "nerd prom" was pretty poppin’.
