Stephen Colbert loves to take the piss out of the Canadian cannabis industry and his monologue last week was no exception.

Colbert then went on to talk about a new study that revelated more elderly are using medical marijuana. After listening to the audience erupt in applause at the news, Colbert went on to say, "At least old people are going to smell weird for a cool reason."

Ouch.
