"The bigger one is the drugs that you often cite," Williams said, addressing Watters. "Again, he says drugs are coming through that southern border and most people say 'no, most drugs come through legal ports of entry.'"

"Well, you would know, Juan, because you sound like you're high right now," Watters said, to laughter from other members of "The Five."

Fox News did not immediately respond to a request for comment on Watters's remarks.
