You're going to love the way your feel on weed, he guarantees it.

Men's Warehouse founder George Zimmer has come out in favor of marijuana legalization in a big way, admitting that he regularly partakes of the drug that has seen sweeping support over the past few years.

He called the war against marijuana "the biggest con ever perpetrated" in an interview with CNBC:

"I've been smoking marijuana on a regular basis for about 50 years," Zimmer said to CNBC, before joking, "As you can see, it's really impacted me in a negative way."

Zimmer gave the keynote speech Friday at the Cannabis World Congress & Business Expo in Los Angeles, pushing for legalization. "Everybody in the country knows what the truth here is, except the 535 people we elect to make these decisions in Washington, D.C.," he told attendees. "It's astounding."

He's throwing his support behind an initiative to legalize recreational marijuana in California next year, just as he supported the proposition that failed in 2010. No matter what form legalization might take, Zimmer said, "I think it's important that we protect limited home cultivation without any government licensing, so whether it's one plant or 10 plants, I don't know, but I think that's very important."


Who knows how much leverage he can throw in the ring for the issue as a living meme, but he'll surely give it all he's got. Unless he gets distracted by some mild psychoactive drug.

We're not sure if you know this, but Snoop Dogg really likes marijuana.

So much so that he announced the launching of a new media platform from TechCrunch's Disrupt Conference Sept. 21.

D-O-double-G said the platform, called Merry Jane, will be many things, but most importantly a celebration of all things cannabis.

According to The Verge writing from Disrupt:

It sounds like the site will combine a traditional editorial voice with consumer-oriented features like a dispensary mapping service and a buying guide for marijuana-related products.

...The site doesn't officially open until October, but Snoop and Chung are giving 420 users per day — yes, really — access to its beta version until then. They've also shared an example of the kind of content they'll have on the site. Deflowered is a "groundbreaking interview series that will profile innovative people as they enjoy cannabis," and its first episode stars two former Marines talking about post-military life and alternative medicine. "After watching where the cannabis industry is headed, I wanted to create a platform that will take this movement further," said Snoop. "Merry Jane is a game-changing platform for pop culture."



Though the site is in beta, they're already released the first of the 'Deflowered' series on their YouTube channel featuring two former marines discussing how medical marijuana has helped them treat their PTSD.
