Number Seven: Roseanne Barr is Selling Marijuana
Medical marijuana advocate and comedian Roseanne Barr is popping into the pot industry. She plans to open up a dispensary in Santa Ana, California, in only a couple months’ time.

Number Six: Bill Maher is Going Public
Bill Maher is one of the largest advocates for nationwide marijuana legalization, and often sports his views on his television program Real Time with Bill Maher.

After stating that his “third eye glaucoma” was acting up, he lit a joint and smoked it right there on set! That’s definitely one way to make a point!
Number Five: Woody Harrelson is Joining the Industry
Woody Harrelson has been a long-time advocate for the legalization of marijuana, and has just announced that his name will be on the list for possible dispensaries in Hawaii. If all works out according to plan, his dispensaries under the name of Simple Organic Living should be ready to open in Honolulu by July.
