It appears that Saturday’s final episode of CNN’s “D.L. Hughley Breaks The News” included the legalization of marijuana controversy.

The segment takes viewers on a tour of some of the stores in Cali where you can purchase the herb with a prescription, but something about it was a bit too uncomfortable for the news network.

Apparently CNN higher-ups reportedly forced the show’s producers to edit out Hughley, who suffers back problems and has a prescription for medicinal marijuana, making a purchase for the finale. A CNN spokesperson said, “We always edit pieces to conform to our editorial standards.

Admittedly, the show had a lot of weed in it, but you have to see for yourself why they cut the purchase portion out.  I don’t know … this whole thing with him losing his show feels like Farrakhan on Arsenio.

Watch below to check out the marijuana segment.

  1. this was the best clip i’ve seen of his show. when he first came on, they really wanted him to just be a coon, but d.l. played the role for a while, till he started to get some reign and voiced some things. too bad for CNN, maybe d.l. can do something less mainstream and more realstream.

  2. i watched a couple episodes in the beginning and didn’t really care for the show (i’m not a fan of dl’s comedy), but i watched it again a couple of weeks ago and was pleasantly surprised…he was really tackling the issues instead of just crackin’ jokes. i’m sorry to hear his show was cancelled.
