Bill Maher: Pot ‘Way Less Dangerous’

Maher, who has been vocal about his use and support for the legalization of marijuana, cited statistics of those who have died from alcohol abuse and prescription drug overdoses, but added there has not been one recorded instance of “marijuana overdose.”

CALIFORNIA:  Liberal comic Bill Maher praised the president for his comments that marijuana isn’t more dangerous than alcohol that were published this week in an interview with the New Yorker, but thinks he doesn’t go far enough in supporting legalization.

“I just think it shows how out of whack we are with this issue because we all applaud it when [President Barack Obama] said, ‘I don’t think pot is more dangerous than alcohol,’” Maher said Friday, quoting Obama’s interview with the New Yorker, during his HBO program “Real Time with Bill Maher.”

“Well, not more dangerous, it’s plainly way less dangerous,” Maher continued.
