Sarah Silverman: 'Pot Makes You Really Funny'

Sarah Silverman explained the recent controversy on the Emmys red carpet when she showed off her vape pen last night on Jimmy Kimmel Live.

'I have no shame about it. It's not a big deal to me. Pot is legal here and I like to have a little pufferooni at the end of the night. It's so crazy that it was some big bananas big deal that I had a little pot thing, and meanwhile you have to walk around the Emmys in a sea of drunk and terrifying scary people. You know I'm afraid of drunk people. I don't like it, but I have a little puff at the end of the night like a lady. Plus, I have a prescription. I have a serious medical condition. I have a condition that makes me not realize how delicious Pop Tarts are. And also that reruns of The Nanny are funny. Pot makes you really funny.'

"Do you really think that pot makes you funny?" Kimmel, Silverman's ex-boyfriend, asked,

"No no," she clarified. "Pot makes you funny."

Silverman won the Emmy for Outstanding Writing for a Variety Special for We Are Miracles.
