Watch Zach Galifianakis Smoke Pot on Live Television

Zach Galifianakis took out a joint and starting smoking marijuana on a recent live taping of Bill Maher’s late-night show, HBO’s ‘Real Time with Bill Maher’. Maher had Galifianakis on his show for a live panel discussion on California’s upcoming vote over whether or not to decriminalize marijuana.

The actor also decided to visit the show because he’s busy promoting his new comedy ‘Due Date.’ Of the vote, Galifianakis said “It’s a tricky thing politically to jump on that bandwagon (and vote for the legalization of pot) because I think that maybe people still see it as taboo.”

Galifianakis then proceeded to take a joint and a lighter out of his coat, and allowed fellow guest, conservative reporter Margaret Hoover, to smell it. When she confirmed it was really marijuana, he took a few puffs. He felt Maher’s show was a good place to show his support for the decriminalization, as the host is an opponent of legislation outlawing marijuana.

    That was a great episode. I didn't find it all that shocking though. People are becoming more accepting of marijuana. They're seeing it's not the root of all evil like it has been made out to be.

    This was classic. Like the other comment said, i didn't find it that shocking but it's nice to see that people are becoming way more tolerant of a simple plant :)
