The strong odor of marijuana wafted through the Colorado capitol building on Wednesday morning, and was apparently so pungent that the state senate's president asked members over the intercom to "please douse all the doobies in the area."

Video of state Sen. John Morse's (D) comment was lifted from the chamber's recordings by ABC 7 News Denver reporter Anica Padilla.

It's not clear who in the Capitol had the marijuana, or whether any was being smoked nearby.

This video is from ABC 7 News Denver, published Wednesday, Feb. 13, 2013.
