Men's Warehouse Founder Is Huge Pot Legalization Backer
The nation's foremost purveyor of buy-one-get-one-for-$100-off suits is the biggest financial backer -- outside the medical marijuana world -- of the state's pot-legalization ballot initiative, according to the Associated Press.
California Secretary of State records show that Men's Warehouse founder and CEO George Zimmer has given $10,000 to the full-legalization ballot measure that, if approved, would allow those 21 and older to possess one ounce of pot, grow it, and smoke it -- with the state even being able to tax it.
Maybe Zimmer, who resides in Northern California, should change his motto: "You're going to like the way you toke. I guarantee it."
