Grateful Dead members and John Mayer delivered four-song performance amid a plume of pot smoke.

Dead and Company is the super collaboration featuring members of the Grateful Dead performing alongside John Mayer. Last night, the band were booked for Jimmy Kimmel Live, and like the jam band that they are, Dead and Company used the appearance to campaign for nationwide marijuana legalization.
