Another great anti-drug war rant from Bill Maher

Bill Maher is is an American comedian, actor, writer, and producer. He hosted the late-night television talk show Politically Incorrect on Comedy Central and ABC, and is currently the star of Real Time with Bill Maher on HBO.

Maher is known for his political satire and sociopolitical commentary. His commentaries target a wide swath of topics, from the right-wing to the left-wing, bureaucracies of many kinds, political correctness, Hollywood, the mass media, and persons in positions of high political and social power, among many others. He is a big supporter of legalising cannabis.

This rant starts one minute 40 secs into the clip below. In the course of his monologue he cites the drugs harm index recently published in the Lancet.
