Gayle King Outs Oprah, Plans to Try "A Marijuana Cigarette" with Amy Schumer

Gayle King, guesting on The Ellen Show, mimed smoking pot when the subject of Ellen's recent birthday party came up. Turns out the party smelled strongly like pot, and although Ellen said she doesn't like smoking it, she joked that her writers have it on hand. It had come out that Amy Schumer told King at the party that she wants to get her high, and King says she's planning to try it.

King also said she wasn't telling tales out of school when she told Ellen that Oprah "has smoked a little marijuana too."

In a separate interview on the show, Oprah herself declared Ellen's pot-infused party "the most fun I ever had. I don't even know what happened to me." I wonder if she got a contact high (at least).

Oprah told Andy Cohen on Watch What Happens Live in 2013 that she hadn't smoked since 1982, but would be willing to "hang out" with him after the show, because "I heard it's gotten better."

It's been reported that the cannabis-infused tea company Kikoko has been covered in O Magazine.

Watching Schumer's new film I Feel Pretty is as much fun as going to a party (though there is no pot smoking in it). Schumer picked out a pretty pink bong in a headshop window during her appearance on Jerry Seinfeld's Netflix show "Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee."

Miley Cyrus: Marijuana is My First and True Love

Miley Cyrus, who has famously taken a break from smoking weed, was asked about her hempen hiatus on Jimmy Kimmel's show last night. The exchange went like this:

Kimmel: "You are no longer smoking I understand."

Cyrus: "I want to be, but no."

Kimmel: "Now that it's legal here in California, you've decided...."

Cyrus: "That's the way I...I'm a rebel!"

Kimmel: "Why aren't you smoking anymore?"

Cyrus: "Because I am very focused on what I'm working on right now." (Apparently that's either on designing clothes and shoes for Converse, or being back together with Liam Hemsworth. You can hardly blame her for the latter.)

She raised her hand as though taking an oath when she added:  "I also think it's the most magical,'s my first and true love. It's just not for me right now at this time in my life, but I'm sure there will be a day I will happily indulge. "

Cyrus also talked about feeding her pig Doritos, and revealed that her Grandma unknowingly baked Snoop weed brownies (via CG) before the VMA awards last year. She says that her "favorite thing in the world" is to smoke pot and play UFC video games, adding, "It's not very productive." Apparently, the addictive thing in Cyrus's life was the video games.

Miley took a selfie with Kimmel's other guest, Senator Elizabeth Warren, who has been crafting a bill with Republican Sen. Cory Gardner to give states the power to fully legalize marijuana.

As another May Day present to potheads, California Senator Dianne Feinstein, who has assiduously refused to support even medical marijuana 22 years after her state voted to legalize it, has finally said she supports keeping the federal government out of California's business. The fact that she was unable to win her party's endorsement in her re-election campaign against the more progressive Kevin de Leon is considered to have been a factor in her sudden enlightenment. Had Feinstein made the announcement on April 1, it would have been more believable.
