Bill Maher: 'It's Pot's Turn!'—To Be Legalized, That Is

The veteran comic has some words of advice for young pot smokers, too: Choose your parents well.

 

In case you didn't know, Bill Maher thinks it's time marijuana had its day in the sun.

The comedian addressed the discriminatory nature of current U.S. weed laws on "Real Time With Bill Maher" on Friday night. While this time he didn't have Zach Galifianakis on hand to light up a joint, he had plenty to say about the broken system.

"We should at least be honest with our kids and tell them the truth about drug laws in this country," he said. "Kids, if you're gonna experiment, make absolutely certain that beforehand your parents are white and well-connected."

He went on to call for both the legalization of marijuana and Presidential pardons for Americans serving jail time for non-violent drug offenses.

"It's pot's turn," he said.
