On Thursday, Stephen Colbert took stock of Sanjay Gupta changing his mind on pot.

Gupta recently revealed that he has reversed his opposition to pot. In an interview with Piers Morgan, he apologized for helping "mislead" the American public about the effects of marijuana. He also wrote an op-ed called "Why I Changed My Mind On Weed," in which he said that pot did have beneficial effects.

Colbert could not believe what he was hearing on Thursday. "Wait a second, we were misinformed by a cable news doctor?!" he exclaimed. "Next you'll tell me i cant get directions to my cousin's house from Fareed Zakaria 'GPS!'"

He lamented that Gupta "has gone over to the dank side," and went on to give viewers a glimpse of what Gupta is like when he has the munchies.
