Bill Maher: Colorado Needs to Get it Right or They Could Ruin it for Everybody [Video]

Colorado is the Jackie Robinson of Marijuana legislation according to Bill Maher and they need to get it right, or they could ruin it for everybody.


For the last eighteen years, Bill Maher has set the boundaries of where funny, political talk can go on American television. First on “Politically Incorrect” (Comedy Central, ABC, 1993-2002), and for the last nine years on HBO’s “Real Time,” Maher’s combination of unflinching honesty and big laughs have garnered him 24 Emmy nominations. In October of 2008, this same combination was on display in Maher’s uproarious and unprecedented swipe at organized religion, “Religulous,” directed by Larry Charles (“Borat”). The documentary has gone on to become the 7th Highest Grossing Documentary ever.
