You have to give credit where credit’s due — Sarah Silverman, 43, does and says exactly what she wants at all times, haters be damned. At the 2014 Primetime Emmys, she nearly gave Giuliana Rancic, 40, a coronary when she revealed that she was toting around a vaporizer and some pot on the red carpet. HollywoodLife.com spoke to Sarah after the show, where she revealed the thought process behind bringing pot to the Emmys.

“I wasn’t stoned,” Sarah told HollywoodLife.com. “I had pot for later in my purse. If it’s in your purse, it’s legal. I mean, I don’t drink. I like to have puff as a treat at appropriate times.”
Sounds reasonable enough, quite honestly, considering she probably has a medical marijuana card, making it totally legal in California for her to be toting around her new accessory. However, it definitely made for a headline-making red carpet moment!
