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.

On last night’s HBO Real Time, Bill Maher talked about the legalization of marijuana in Colorado, emphasizing on how they need to get it right the first time or they could potentially ruin it for everybody, while poking fun at Maureen Dowd’s recent bad experience with edibles in Colorado.
