UNDATED (CNN) -- Ever since voters in two states approved the recreational use of marijuana last week, overjoyed pot smokers aren't the only ones smiling. Some news people can't keep a straight face.
You know all those faceless, joint puffing shots you see on the news? Well now they're mugging for the camera without fear of ending up in a mug shot.
Thanks to ballot victories in Colorado and Washington state, some are contemplating a future of legalized pot.
The Daily Show showcased the happiest stoner who said, "It means I'm gonna smoke a lot of weed tonight."
But newspeople also seemed unable to suppress a grin. It's a phenomenon first noticed by Jon Stewart. He said, "How much just talking about a marijuana story gives news anchors the giggles."
From Brian Williams talking about the munchies, to CNBC passing the bong, though Fox and Friends stayed stern.
Stewart protected his ears with headphones from all the cheers, and Leno did a bit on the media's appetite for this story.
