During his monologue, which aired on NBC on February 25, Harrelson compared pharmaceutical companies to drug cartels and also claimed that they were “buying off the media and politicians” to force individuals to take the vaccine. In the skit, Harrelson mentions the subject, saying that he was reading the “craziest script” in Central Park:

“So the movie goes like this, the biggest drug cartels in the world get together and buy up all the media and all the politicians and force all the people in the world to be locked in their homes, and people are out May come when they take cartel drugs and keep taking them again and again.”

Harrelson wrapped up his remarks by saying that he “threw the script” because he believed that no one would “believe that crazy idea.” The 61-year-old said, “I threw away the script. I mean, who was going to believe that crazy idea? Being forced to do drugs? I do this willingly all day long.
