A Man Donates $1 Million Towards The Legalization Of Cannabis

Lottery Winner Really Wants The Legalization Of Cannabis ToTake Place

It was just last November, when Bob Erb, a farmer and grandfather, (who has been playing the lottery since he was part of the cannabis culture back in the 1970s), finally got his reward and became a multi-millionaire. Mr. Erb won a $25 million jackpot and he has used his money for all different types of things. One of the most notorious and the one I like the most is, that he recently donated $1 million towards the legalization of cannabis and this will surely help the cause.

Mr. Erb says that he has been smoking cannabis since he was 16 years old and that he usually smokes around 15 joints a day. Legalizing marijuana is something that he would certainly love to see and he has now become one of the biggest financial supporters of 420 Day, which is a cannabis related festival that takes place tomorrow in Canada and will surely raise the attention of millions of people across that nation.

What Mr. Erb Thinks About The Legalization Of Cannabis

Sarah Boesveld, who is a journalist for the National Post in Canada, got to interview Mr. Erb and they had quite an interesting conversation. Below, I will quote a couple of questions from the interview that Sarah had with the new multi-millionaire, about the legalization of cannabis.   

Sarah: Erb is a great name for a marijuana activist.
Mr. Erb: I’ve heard that before. I’ve got a couple of buddies and their last name is ‘Joynt.’ They hung around together, they’d be walking down the street and we’d say ‘Oh, that’s just what we were looking for, a couple of Joynts!’

 Sarah: Why is legalization such a crucial issue? 
Mr. Erb:  Marijuana legalization would result in income taxes collected, increased spending on home mortgages, municipal infrastructure upgrades, more money for healthcare, education, pensions — all without raising taxes. The  revenue from B.C.’s marijuana industry’s estimated at $12-billion annually. Not only that, there would be a huge drop in crime of all types. Of course that’s not good news for police because pot crime is their bread and butter. Several medical studies show that people who use pot regularly are usually of higher education and IQ. Pot smokers may be dope-heads, but they’re not dopey people. Prohibition is the biggest social injustice of my lifetime. 
 Sara: Have you always been a dope smoker? 
Mr. Erb : I started smoking pot in 1968 at age 16 and by the time I was 21, five years later, I was probably smoking 15 joints a day — still do. I’m usually up at 4 a.m. and smoking my first one by 4:20 a.m.

As you can see, Mr. Erb has quite an interesting view on the legalization of cannabis and I do agree with most of his ideas. I definitely agree with the fact that not all people who smoke marijuana are “dopey” and I know for a fact that there are many people who have built successful businesses and some who are even working for very large corporations and who smoke as much herb as Mr. Erb does.
