Oh, no, he didn't: Zach Galifianakis' Prop. 19 joint was just a prop itself, Bill Maher says [polls]
After Zach Galifianakis appeared to sparkup a joint Friday during a Proposition 19 discussion on "Real Time With Bill Maher," panelist Margaret Hoover took a whiff and seemed to confirm the weed was real. However, Maher's publicist told website RumorFix on Monday that, nah, that kidder Zach was just pulling our leg. No bud here, honest!
We had been wondering why the host didn't partake, but it all makes sense now, right? Maher made the same point to CNN's Wolf Blitzer on Monday when he too said it was just an illusion. Or maybe just cloves.
"Zach's crazy, he's not that crazy," Maher said of the "Due Date" star.
Prop. 19 — which through means we don't quite understand would legalize possession and cultivation of pot for personal use — has been running behind in the polls recently, even with supporters getting a million bucks at the last minute from George Soros. On Monday, supporters of legalizing marijuana via Prop. 19 were aiming to get out California's youth vote.
Watch the video below, and let us know what you think.
