Last Week Tonight with John Oliver is back after a brief hiatus, and dedicated its big segment Sunday night to marijuana. It's a must-watch if you're not high right now and have the attention span.

"Marijuana is something we've gradually all decided is okay...like Mark Wahlberg as a serious actor," he jokes (Side bar: Mark Wahlberg could certainly use some marijuana. Maybe it'll chill him out so he doesn't commit assault, and it'll make his burgers edible).

It's time for "our federal laws desperately need to be brought up to date," John Oliver argues, which is, like, totally dank, right? Right.
