Zach Galifianakis promotes Prop 19, smokes pot on HBO

On this past Friday's "Real Time with Bill Maher," during a debate on California's Proposition 19 (which would legalize recreational use of marijuana under California state law), comedian/actor Zach Galifianakis apparently decided to make his point by smoking a joint on the program. With Galifianakis's quirky comedic style, some are skeptical about whether it was the real deal, but the reaction of his fellow panelists and host Bill Maher seem to indicate it's legit. Watch the video and judge for yourself here:

Still, celebrity endorsements notwithstanding, Prop 19's chances look dim. Supporters are arguing that the polls are wrong... which is usually what the losing side says. The Field Poll has Prop 19 down by seven points, while the L.A. Times/USC poll has the yes side down 12. Can Prop 19 surprise pollsters and win at the ballot tomorrow? Be sure to check out our full election coverage Tuesday night for all the details.
