Watch Conan O’Brien Visit a Dispensary and Fill a Piñata Full of Cannabis

Red-coiffed late night talk show host Conan O'Brien recently "helped" one of his staffers practice for her driver's license test, with Ice Cube and Kevin Hart joining in on the shenanigans. Their sage words of wisdom to new drivers include the following gems:

  • Shout "You're my bitch!" to cars that you pass.
  • Fling pennies (or batteries, if you're Ice Cube) at bad drivers.
  • Wear your seat belt (even Tupac, one of the "biggest thugs" Ice Cube's known, always wore his seat belt).
  • Driving a car without power windows is, according to Kevin Hart, "a big mistake," because you look too stupid hurling expletives at someone before having to hand-crank the window back up.

The 6 Best Cannabis-Inspired SNL Skits

With these essential driving basics out of the way, Conan purchases a piñata that is, appropriately, shaped like a car. His student, Diana Chang, spots a nearby dispensary so they pop in to check out what's in stock. Kevin Hart instructs Conan to get some cannabis-infused Sour Patch Kids (Conan demands "two kilos," which I'm pretty sure would erode the inside of his mouth), and Conan demands the budtender fill his piñata with jars of cannabis (including Green Crack). The group then absconds with a duct-taped piñata full of bud and a medical marijuana tapestry that they drape across the front of their car. 

After Diana appears to hot box the car from the back seat (although I suspect that's actually a prop, 'cuz illegal), the group gets chided by a bicycle cop for blocking the intersection before finishing the segment at a Popeye's parking lot while they chow down on fried chicken. Basically, Conan looks to be the best worst driver's education instructor ever. 

The entire segment is 11:38 long and well worth the laughs, but the dispensary portion starts at about the 9:00 mark. Click on the screenshot to head over to Team Coco for the video (sorry folks, their embed seems wonked):
