Joan Rivers smokes pot on reality show
Thu, 02 Feb 2012 8:26a.m.
Comedienne Joan Rivers stunned TV viewers in the US on Tuesday by smoking marijuana on her reality show.
The veteran funnywoman was shown obtaining medicinal cannabis from a dispensary in California before puffing it from a pipe while sitting in her car with a pal.
As the effect of the drug takes hold, she then dissolves into fits of giggles and has to be driven home by a friend - stopping on the way to pick up burgers and fries.
But Rivers' pot-puffing antics infuriated her daughter Melissa, who told viewers, "My 78-year-old mother has now become 17, and I have become a soccer mum yelling at her teenage kid."
The scenes were broadcast on network WETV's reality show Joan & Melissa: Joan Knows Best.

Seriously things could be worse she could be hitting the booze hard and getting abusive and accident prone like my gran.
I see no real crime being committed so long as she moderates her drinking and smoking pot.
Ditto shes not got long on this planet people at that age should be allowed to have a bit of fun so long as they are careful.
btw there are ways to smoke pot where you have reduced chances of getting cancer.
