The Los Angeles City Council voted this week to ban medical marijuana dispensaries throughout the city. This left Jimmy Kimmel wondering how someone who has a serious medical issue that requires marijuana (or someone pretending to have a serious medical issue that requires marijuana) is supposed to get their medicine.

And so last night he presented the Chia Pot, which is just like a Chia Pet, except with pot. Or Cheetos. And it doubles as a water pipe. Okay, so it's a half-baked gag that might be better to watch if you're fully baked.
