It happened during an April 21 discussion about, of all things, cherry blossoms during the Communications, Technology, Innovation, & the Internet Subcommittee hearing on “Advancing Telehealth through Connectivity.”
 
The chairman, U.S. Sen. Roger Wicker, a Mississippi Republican, asked about the best place to see cherry blossoms, delighting New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker, who insisted it was Newark.
 
“Thank you, and I’m glad that’s a part of the record for someone 10 years from now to wonder about,” Wicker said.
 
That’s when Gardner, a Yuma Republican elected in November, chimed in with a weed joke and the place cracked up.
 

“Mr. Chairman, we have some buds in Colorado, too,” Gardner said.
