A local TV reporter from Colorado went on a bit of a rant in a video about people buying legal marijuana without wearing ‘pants’.

Jeremy Hubbard, a news anchor for KDVR-TV, said he witnessed a young lady walking into a cannabis dispensary in her underwear and said she was giving the state a bad reputation.

“We gotta start putting on pants when we’re going to buy marijuana,” Hubbard said in the video. “Do your thing, knock yourself out. I see a woman hurriedly get out of her car and rush towards the door of the dispensary wearing nothing but underwear.”

Though he clarified that the woman had a shirt and jacket on, he stated that “she didn’t take the time to put on pants” before collecting her cannabis.

“Now look,” he continued. “The eyes of the world are upon us. Everybody is watching how we handle legal marijuana and the last thing we want to do is add to the perception that we’re a bunch of stoners who don’t have the energy to get out of bed.”

“So when you’re going to buy marijuana, at least, please, put on pants,” Hubbard concluded.

Carrying up to an ounce of cannabis for people aged over 21 has been legal in Colorado since voters passed Amendment 64 in November 2012 and commercial sales started January 1, 2014.
