U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders made history last week at a Democratic primary debate by becoming the first major presidential candidate to indicate he’d vote in favor of legalizing marijuana if given the chance.
But now, thanks to Jimmy Kimmel, Sanders might have a way to use marijuana to save the U.S. Postal Service from budget problems that have plagued it in recent years.
“Would you be open to the idea…maybe have postal carriers deliver marijuana to people?” the ABC late-night talk show host asked Sanders during an interview on Wednesday.
“That’ll get rid of the federal deficit pretty quickly, won’t it?” quipped the senator from Vermont.
