Actor used mock marijuana to make a point about California's Prop 19.

Due Date star Zach Galifianakis lit up quite a bit of controversy last week when he apparently casually smoked a joint during an interview on HBO's Real Time With Bill Maher.

The actor was seemingly making a point during a discussion last Friday about California's Proposition 19, which proposes to legalize marijuana in the state.

The incident ignited a buzz about Galifianakis' bold statement. But today, host Bill Maher's publicist Cece Yorke, revealed exclusively to RumorFix.com that the joint was bunk.

"It was not an actual joint. It was a prop," Yorke said.
