Last night, on the Bill Maher show Real Time, which is filmed live, loveable and furry comedian Zach Falifianakis decided to put his mouth where his politics were, so to speak. He openly smoked a joint on the show to demonstrate his support for marijuana legalization.
This one-ups Author Christopher Hitchens (of God is not Great) who had previously appeared on the Bill Maher show with a high ball glass. If he could only get Lindsay Lohan or Charlie Sheen, we may see a line of coke being snorted.
Although this public support comes from a liberal celebrity, the national attention and proximity to the vote on the initiative should give it an extra boost toward legalizing marijuana. What the Federal Government, especially the DEA does after that is anyone's guess, but I imagine it'll be a little chaotic.
