Republican Strategist: It Was Definitely Marijuana

Tonight’s edition of Real Time with Bill Maher should be very interesting. That’s because after host Bill Maher suggested during a Monday interview with CNN’s Wolf Blitzer that the joint lit up on air last week by guest Zach Galifianakis was in fact not marijuana but rather “cloves or something,” fellow October 29th guest Margaret Hoover has set the record straighter.

On last night’s edition of The O’Reilly Factor, she insisted that the pot smoked by the bearded funnyman was real.

Hoover, via Mediate.com, told Bill O’Reilly:

If you’ve been to a rock concert, you know that pot makes these big, billowy white clouds, and it didn’t do that. So I wasn’t sure if it was real or not. And nobody was sure if it was real or not… It was defnitely not cloves. I asked Zach afterwards, he said it was THC-free marijuana.

Could the FCC soon be asking to verify the Hangover and Due Date star’s medical marijuana prescription? Stay tuned for tonight’s newest episode of Golden Reefer at Black Rock. As an added bonus, O’Reilly is one of tonight’s Real Time guests.
