Real Time host Bill Maher took his support for the legalization of marijuana around the US to new highs on Friday, lighting up a joint to make his point.
“It’s not a tenable situation” he said of the drug’s limited legality. “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.”
Maher asked fellow pot lovers to “get your heads out of your grass” and realize that progress on social issues is not a given.
“Somehow, you can drink drink alcohol. You can smoke cigarettes,” he noted. “You can do that thing where you cut off your oxygen with a belt and masturbate. Which is not only dangerous, but take it from me, it’ll get you kicked out of Macy’s menwear like that.”
Watch Maher make his pitch for full marijuana legalization, as posted online on Friday, below.
WATCH: Saturday Night Live airs Christmas special — that’s just one giant dig at the Electoral College
NBC's "Saturday Night Live" aired an opening skit that was just one giant attack on the electoral college.
A snowman introduced the segment, saying that we could look in on the holiday table conversation thanks to hacked Nest cams.
The skit featured a house in San Francisco, California, a second in Charleston, South Carolina and a third in Atlanta, Georgia.
Each dinner table debated impeachment, and the differences between President Donald Trump and his predecessor, President Barack Obama.
But then the snowman said that none of their votes matter.
"They'll debate the issues all year long, but then it all comes down to 1,000 people in Wisconsin who won't even think about the election until the morning of," the snowman said. "And that's the magic of the Electoral College."

‘You can say Merry Christmas again’: Lara and Eric Trump declare victory in the War on Christmas
For years, conservatives have complained about a "War on Christmas" -- but President Donald Trump finally won the war, according to his son and daughter-in-law.
Fox News personality Jeanine Pirro interviewed Eric Trump and his wife Lara in Trump Tower, which Pirro called the "New York White House."

"You can say Merry Christmas again," Lara Trump said. "Isn't that so nice, Jeanine?"
