Bill Maher Confesses: ‘Selling Pot Allowed Me to Get Through College’

In an infographic from this week’s edition of Bloomberg BusinessWeek, Bill Maher admits to having been a pot dealer as a means to paying for college and start up his career in comedy.

“Selling pot allowed me to get through college and make enough money to start off in comedy,” the HBO Real Time host explained about his years studying English and history at Cornell University (class of 1978).

Other revelations from the piece: he believes it a “complete blessing” that ABC canceled his show, Politically Incorrect, back in 2002; and Maher attended the 2013 MLB All-Star Game with other controversial figures Michael Moore and Salman Rushdie.
