Sarah Silverman shocked many when she said he was carrying a bit of pot in her purse at the 2014 Emmy's, but her response to it all has been a lot more nonchalant than the media attention she received.

"It's silly that having a puff of legal pot at the end of the night is news amongst a sea of scary drunk people," tweeted Silverman.

"As of January 1, 2011, possession of one ounce (28.5 gms) or less of marijuana is an infraction, punishable by a maximum $100 fine (plus fees) with no criminal record under Ca Health & Safety Code 11357b," according to

So Silverman's "legal pot" may have been under the amount but the fact that she even had it was what sent social media in a frenzy.

"'This is my pot,' she said. 'Liquid pot,' said Silverman according to "With that the internet exploded. "Live your life girl!" tweeted actress Anna Kendrick to her nearly three million followers."

Silverman, however, motions toward drinking as being worst than her vape pen according to her tweet raising a whole new argument as to which choice brings more consequences.
