Zach Galifianakis lit up a joint on Friday’s ‘Real Time With Bill Maher‘ during a discussion about California’s ballot measure, Proposition 19, which would legalize the sale of Marijuana in the state.

To laughs and applause from the audience, Galifianakis puffed and passed the herbal cigarette to fellow guest, Republican Margaret Hoover, who took one whiff and confirmed “it’s real.”

The comedian contended that politicians have refrained from discussing Prop 19 because it’s still a “taboo” topic. As the debate raged on, he paused and joked “Oh my God look at those dragons!” Outspoken pot enthusiast Maher refrained from joining Galifianakis in the gag.
