Actor Zach Galifianakis blazed new trails on late-night TV Friday as he produced and lit a joint on HBO’s Real Time with Bill Maher.
Maher, a longtime supporter of marijuana law reform, welcomed Galifianakis to his talk show, where a panel discussion ensued about California’s upcoming Proposition 19 vote on whether to legalize, tax and regulate cannabis, reports PopEater.
“It’s a tricky thing politically to jump on that bandwagon [and vote for the legalization of marijuana]because I think that maybe people still see it as taboo,” Galifianakis, the star of Hangover, said.
Pulling a joint and lighter from his coat pocket, Galifianakis fired up and started puffing, pausing to allow conservative reporter and fellow guest Margaret Hoover to sniff the joint, confirming it was the real thing.
Galifianakis is currently promoting his new buddy movie, Due Date, which co-stars Robert Downey Jr.
