Zach Galifianakis lit up late-night TV, literally, when he decided to smoke some weed on HBO’s ‘Real Time with Bill Maher.’
Maher — a longtime opponent of legislation outlawing marijuana — welcomed Galifianakis (currently promoting his new buddy movie ‘Due Date,’ co-starring Robert Downey Jr.) to the set of his current-events talk show, where a panel discussion ensued about California’s upcoming vote on whether to decriminalize the drug.
“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,” said the ‘Hangover’ star.
Pulling a joint and lighter from his sportcoat, the funnyman proceeded to puff away — pausing to allow conservative reporter and fellow guest Margaret Hoover to sniff his prop and confirm it was the real thing.
