WATCH: CNN Promotes Using Drugs On Live TV During New Year’s Eve Celebration

CNN’s Randi Kaye promoted drug use on live TV during CNN’s coverage of the New Year’s Eve Celebrations taking place on Sunday across the United States.

Reporting from Colorado, CNN featured Kaye in two separate segments, once on a party bus that showed people using marijuana, and another at a “puff, pass and paint party” where she was seen holding a joint, The Hollywood Reported noted.

Kaye held up the joint to the camera at the “puff, pass and paint party” and said “this is for Andy,” referring to Anderson Cooper’s new co-host, Andy Cohen.

Though she demonstrated for the audience how to use a bong and gas mask, even helping light one for one partier, and made a show of holding a joint, she did not appear to partake on camera.
