Richard Branson: “Have a Joint” with Your Kids

Marijuana Entrepreneur

Billionaire Sir Richard Branson recently appeared at an entrepreneurial event in Chicago where he was supposed to speak to up-and-coming entrepreneurs about business. Branson decided to also include in his speech the condoning of smoking marijuana with your kids.

Branson said to the audience: “If they’re going to have a joint, do it with them. Don’t let them sneak off and do it on their own,” The Chicago Tribune reported.

Branson informed the audience that he is a member of the Global Drug Commission, and that the commission has been attempting to think of drug use more as a health problem than a criminal offense. This changed the mood in the room.

The inclination or hint toward Branson to speak about his views on marijuana came from a simple question. Sage CEO Stephen Kelly asked Branson how he ensured that his kids learned values. A quick change of topics shifted the conversation in a different direction after Branson’s commentary.

Branson has openly spoken often about his personal marijuana use and support of marijuana decriminalization.
