Bill Maher's Dzhok of the Week

Dzhokhar Tsarnaev
Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev was reportedly a pothead and weed dealer

It's being reported that Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, the younger of the two Boston Marathon bombers, is a stoner. "Which could explain why he chose as a getaway vehicle a boat that was on land," Bill Maher quipped on the Real Time.

The younger Tsarnaev has been described as a "normal pot head" as well as a dealer. "There was a permanent stench of marijuana in his room," says a fellow student at UMass-Dartmouth. "He earned at least some cash selling marijuana," another source states. "At least the portion he didn't smoke himself."

Marijuana-reform activist and podcaster Russ Belville reminds that there are "26.1 million annual tokers, 17 million monthly tokers and two million daily tokers. Two of them are alleged terrorists. That's literally, at best, a one-in-a-million risk."
