You're going to love the way your feel on weed, he guarantees it.

Men's Warehouse founder George Zimmer has come out in favor of marijuana legalization in a big way, admitting that he regularly partakes of the drug that has seen sweeping support over the past few years.

He called the war against marijuana "the biggest con ever perpetrated" in an interview with CNBC:

"I've been smoking marijuana on a regular basis for about 50 years," Zimmer said to CNBC, before joking, "As you can see, it's really impacted me in a negative way."

Zimmer gave the keynote speech Friday at the Cannabis World Congress & Business Expo in Los Angeles, pushing for legalization. "Everybody in the country knows what the truth here is, except the 535 people we elect to make these decisions in Washington, D.C.," he told attendees. "It's astounding."

He's throwing his support behind an initiative to legalize recreational marijuana in California next year, just as he supported the proposition that failed in 2010. No matter what form legalization might take, Zimmer said, "I think it's important that we protect limited home cultivation without any government licensing, so whether it's one plant or 10 plants, I don't know, but I think that's very important."

Who knows how much leverage he can throw in the ring for the issue as a living meme, but he'll surely give it all he's got. Unless he gets distracted by some mild psychoactive drug.

This is not the way to promote world peace.

Some poor, poor guy over at Gawker had his life's dreams put on hold when the Pope came to town. And he is surely not alone.

With the Pope's parade into America came enormous traffic blockages that put the kibosh on iPhone 6S deliveries. As the writer says:

The monstrous traffic congestion caused by the arrival of Pope Francis is expected to be so bad that UPS and Apple are already warning customers against the worst: missing the promised Friday arrival date of our new aluminum and glass idols. I received this email yesterday, and renounced my faith in the Catholic Church:

We know the Pope spreads an anti-capitalism message, but shouldn't it be one that doesn't involve the delay of new technology? Think of the children!

Well, we need our iPhones. How else are we supposed to use those cute little emojis that Twitter created for your visit?

iPhone owners wept.

After launching his new show with a bevy of jokes on Donald Trump, Stephen Colbert decided it would be a nice idea to invite the GOP front running candidate for the presidency on The Late Show.

So, Sept. 22, it happened.

It certainly wasn't the best interview Colbert has had on his show so far, that honor goes to the the emotional chat with Vice President Joe Biden. But still it was a civilized conversation in which Trump still would not say whether President Obama was born in America.

Then they played a little game:

All in all, a solid night at The Late Show.
