Zach Galifianakis smokes a joint on Bill Maher's show (Video)
Update: November 2, 2010, 9:50 a.m.
Bill Maher went on Wolf Blitzer's CNN show and said Zach Galifianakis did not smoke pot on his show. "Zach's crazy, but he's not that crazy," Maher said. He told Blitzer he thought it was cloves. Despite Maher's protestations, I'm still pretty certain Galifianakis lit a marijuana joint up on the show. The reactions seem just a little too real. And cloves smell nothing like marijuana. But so be it, Maher.

As polls show a majority opposing the California measure to legalize marijuana, proponents have been stepping up the call to show favor for Prop 19. Taking to national television, actor Zach Galifianakis staged a rather dramatic show of support by lighting up a marijuana joint while debating the proposition on "Real Time With Bill Maher."
The audience broke into cheers and applause and the panelists broke into stunned laughter, declaring, "It's real," and "He went there."
Galifianakis made the smoky point presumably to break the "taboo" of marijuana he spoke about earlier on the show, saying that few people stand up in support of the pot legislation because it's seen as some nefarious thing, but that it's really no big deal.
The comedian is best known for performing as a schlubby, dazed sidekick. Does he help the Prop 19 debate or hurt it?
Here's the short version:
And here's the discussion preceding Galifianakis lighting up:
