Netflix tip! Chelsea Handler, host of late-night celebrity talk show “Chelsea Lately” premiered a provocative, four-part documentary series on Netflix Saturday, “Chelsea Does” and screened one hour-long episode at the Sundance Film Festival over the weekend.

Handler’s quasi-documentary shows her reporting and riffing on the topics of marriage, racism, Silicon Valley, and drugs. Notably, in “Chelsea Does Drugs”, Handler smokes up with Willie Nelson, interviews addicts, eats a trendy, edible pot dinner with Josh Wolf and Fortune Feimster, and travels to Peru to try the hallucinogen ayahuasca.

Handler related: “Willie Nelson’s like the coolest, obviously, but I was just so stoned. … You walk on that bus and you’re stoned.”

Ayahuasca gave her “[got] like this crazy, crazy imagery of all your childhood memories came floating [in front of her],” she said.

Variety reports:

“In the drugs episode, Handler argues that marijuana should be legal in the United States. “People aren’t doing bad things on marijuana,” Handler told Variety, adding that laws banning the drugs are because “our country is religious and stupid. It’s a bunch of zealots.” Handler actually wanted to push the boundaries even more. “I wanted to do hardcore drugs,” Handler added. “I wanted to try heroin—medically supervised.” But she was told a doctor would never sanction that.”
