The pro-marijuana crowd is having a lot of fun tonight at the expense of former Congressman Tom Tancredo. Apparently, the arch-conservative made a pre-election bet with comedian Adam Hartle, stipulating that he would smoke weed if Colorado voted to legalize cannabis. The bet was made public in a recent promotional video for Hartle’s documentary about the passage of Colorado’s Amendment 64, and Tancredo says he will keep his word. While he personally supported legalization, we’re guessing that Tancredo wasn’t anticipating to be among those lighting up.

We at Twitchy might disagree with our pro-pot friends on this issue, but thanks for giving us a chuckle. Just don’t let Tom eat too many Cheetos, OK?

    He’d get a bigger buzz if he smoked his rug.

    ironically the original bet was that they couldn’t get him to smoke marijuana

    I submit that all of our politicians, should take a toke once in a while.

    Dumb bet…he needn’t honor it but should not have made it in first place.

    I’m an Independent Conservative Libertarian, and I SMOKE MARIJUANA, TOO! I’m proud of Mr. Tancredo for keeping his promise, even if he is against it (in a sense); Heck, I’d even tutor him on some of the finer points of “blazing up,” that I’ve learned over the years… Jawamax 8<{D}

    We in this comment would disagree. Malkin could stand to join in on Tancredos 420 break.
