For those who frequent Whistler in the Northern Winter, this may not be news to you. But I read it yesterday and was blown away… Ross Rebagliati, the 1998 Winter Olympic gold medalist, who subsequently lost and then regained the medal due to THC being found in his system, indicating marijuana use, has started a medical dispensary (legal pot shop) called Ross’ Gold. The flagship location is due to be setup in Whistler with more stores to follow. In addition, there’s merch. While not a smoker myself, there’s something about the whole story that makes me want to cheer for Rebagliati – definitely a unique way to embrace the past. Check out more about it all over here.
Thanks to Reddit TIL for the heads up on this one.
