Bernie Sanders wants to know if cannabis reporter is 'stoned' right now

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) has a few burning questions.

When Politico's Natalie Fertig introduced herself to Sanders as the publication's cannabis reporter, Sanders asked, incredulously, if she was "stoned" right now. The senator then wondered out loud if being stoned was a job "requirement," to which Fertig replied, "It's actually not."

He's probably just asking for a friend.
