The telecast for the Primetime Emmy Awards this year has already come to a close, but comedian and host Sarah Silverman isn’t out of the spotlight just yet.
Everyone who tuned in to the pre-awards red carpet show saw the stand-up comedian being interviewed by E! host Giuliana Rancic about the contents of her purse. Silverman then proceeded to empty out her clutch to expose a marijuana vaporizer pen. “This is my pot. It’s liquid pot,” Silverman said to Rancic.
Since then, the topic burned up social networking sites to discuss the controversial marijuana device. Vape pens have been in existence for quite some time now, and have become the go-to tool for people who want to use marijuana without taking it through traditional procedures. Vaporizers have been used by people who have a prescription for medical marijuana, based on some reports that vape pens lessen the adverse effects of the other compounds in marijuana as compared to simply smoking it.
Silverman admits to have a legal prescription of medical marijuana, and she chose to administer the drug through a vaporizer pen. In fact, she’s not afraid of using her Twitter account to declare her use of medical marijuana.
It’s silly that having a puff of legal pot at the end of the night is news amongst a sea of scary drunk people
