The headlines are screaming Zach Galifianakis smokes pot on Bill Maher show! Is it for real or is this just another crazy publicity stunt for Zachâ€™s latest movie? Keep reading there are answers to that question and much more below where you can also see the video of this incident as well as pictures of Galifianakis.
Yes it is really is true Zach Galifianakis lit up a joint on Bill Maher’s show and yes it was a real joint. In fact Zach actually made sure to prove it was real by offering to share it with Republican Margaret Hoover who was also a guest. Although she was laughing and took a whiff she respectfully declined taking a hit.
So what in the world prompted Galifianakis to just light up a joint in the middle of a live TV show? Well it isnâ€™t quite as crazy or scandalous as you might think. The panelist on the show was talking about Californiaâ€™s upcoming vote on legalizing marijuana which is being referred to as Proposition 19. Zach had this to say as the panel debated the merits of the upcoming vote.
I have to agree itâ€™s a tricky thing politically to jump on that bandwagon because I think that maybe people see it as taboo still.
The Hangover star then pulled out the joint and lit it up. I assume he was trying to make some kind of point but I am not sure what it was but it is becoming one hot topic.
Zach Galifianakis smokes pot on Bill Maher show! It isnâ€™t really scandalous in my opinion in fact it is kind of humorous. I highly doubt he meant any harm by it but hey that is just my two cents on the subject. Let me know what you think after you check out the video from the show below.
