Bill Maher wants stoner holiday 4/20 to be officially recognized.
On HBO's "Real Time With Bill Maher" Friday night, the host announced that he'd created a Change.org petition calling on Congress to make April 20 a national weed-related holiday. He then showed his panelists how he likes to celebrate the day with a reading of "'Twas the Night Before 4/20," a riff on the famous poem "A Visit from St. Nicholas."
"Twas the night before 4/20 and all through the crib," read Maher, "not a creature was stirring, not even -- did you hear something? Is the door locked?"
"I was wearing a T-shirt and shorts from the gym," he continued. "I had just settled down to watch Adult Swim."
