“It’s like smoking a joint with Woody Harrelson. They just won’t pass it,” says Bill Maher right before he lights up.
On a recent episode of Real Time with Bill Maher, the host decided to punctuate his speech on the United States' failure to pass nationwide medical marijuana legalization by lighting up a joint. Obviously, he wants the stuff legalized.
At the end of a seven minute rant where he expresses the need to #leaglizeit, he takes what is apparently a joint and lighter out of his pocket and says, "This is private property and I do have a card." The action gets a ton of applause and the cough at the end is a nice touch. He concludes with, "please remember that legalizing pot is a long way from a done deal." Whatever your stance on the issue, you're going to want to watch this video.
Roseanne Barr's got to be loving this.
