Sarah Silverman showed off her “liquid pot” pen on the Emmys red carpet, catching E! host Giuliana Rancic off guard.
First, Rancic said to Silverman as a compliment, "Hey, you're dressed like a nominee."
Silverman replied, “Why did you put the microphone in front of me, you didn't say a question, you’re just like 'hey you're a nominee.'”

Rancic then looked through the comedienne’s clutch and discovered the pen.
"This is my pot. Liquid pot," Silverman said.
“OK, moving on,” Rancic said.
Marijuana is legal in California with a valid medical marijuana prescription.
Silverman later told reporters that she was not stoned at the Emmys, saying she had "pot for later in my purse," Bloomberg News reported.
On Monday, Silverman won an Emmy for Outstanding Writing for a Variety Special for her HBO standup special “Sarah Silverman: We Are Magic.”
“I like to have a puff at appropriate times,” Silverman reportedly said backstage after the win.
