If you are a happy resident of the state that legalized marijuana for either recreational or medical use, it would be interesting for you to know who of the famous musicians supported the cannabis movement with their money and popularity.
Billboard Magazine has recently published a list of the power players who invested in the Reefer Revolution.
As you might expect, Wiz Khalifa and Willie Nelson are on the list. However, it also includes celebrities who you might be surprised to see in it.
On the top of the list is Sean Parker, founder of the Napster, who fueled the California campaign for Proposition 64 with more than $8 million last year. Some have even named this marijuana initiative as the Sean Parker Act.
You might think that all Snoop Dogg and Miley Cyrus do for the marijuana industry is talk about their consumption. But these musicians actually own cannabis-related businesses: Snoop has Merryjane.com, and Miley Cyrus supports her colleague with money and has her own brand of rolling papers.
The list also includes some unexpected names. For instance, did you know that Melissa Etheridge created a line of marijuana products Etheridge Farms after her successful treatment of breast cancer?
Also, the Amoeba Music founders David Prinz and Marc Weinstein received a license to open a weed dispensary in San Francisco.
