Bill Maher Lights Joint on Real Time

Bill Maher's latest "New Rule" on Real Time ("For the Love of Bud") comes complete with a smoking demonstration.

"When I leave Colorado, Oregon, Washington or Alaska, my back pain doesn't go away or whatever it is I have. I'm kidding – I use medical marijuana because my third eye has glaucoma. It's acting up right now. Maybe I should… (lights a joint)… maybe I should treat it. This is private property and I do have a card."

"Not a week goes by without someone asking me to get into the pot business with them. Don't get left behind, they tell me, we can make a fortune selling Maherijuna or Billy Buds or Silly Billy's Wacky Tobacky."

Zach Galifianakis smoked a joint on Real Time in 2010.
