Strong smell of marijuana reported inside Colorado Capitol Wednesday morning

DENVER - A strong smell of marijuana was reported inside the Colorado Capitol Wednesday morning, 7NEWS Reporter Russell Haythorn confirmed.

The entire Senate chamber smelled like marijuana, said Doug Schepman, communications director for the Senate Democrats.

"It wasn't like a car just passing by and catching a whiff," said Schepman. "It was bad."

Senate President John Morse cracked up fellow lawmakers during the session by asking:  "Do you smell marijuana in here, or is it just me?"

On the recording of the morning's proceedings, Morse can be heard asking, "If the Sergeants would please douse all the doobies in the area."

There's still no word on the source of the smell.
