Colbert To Denver Post's Marijuana Editor, Ricardo Baca: 'Are You A Cop?'

Posted: Updated:

Stephen Colbert had one question for the Denver Post's infamous marijuana editor: "Are you a cop?"

No, Ricardo Baca is not a police officer. "I've been a journalist for over 20 years," he said on Thursday's "Colbert Report." As Colorado has become the first state in the U.S. to legalize recreational pot use, the capital city's newspaper made the very unorthodox hire to keep tabs on news about the drug and its users.

Watch his interview with Stephen Colbert, as he divulges his own marijuana use, how highly the drug will be taxed and the hires he's looking to make at the Denver Post to help him with his coverage.
