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.
