Billionaire investor Kevin O’Leary has spent years gaining notoriety as a mainstay member of ABC’s Shark Tank. Prior to that he spent eight years on the Canadian version of the show, Dragon’s Den. Now O’Leary wants to be the Prime Minister of Canada.
In an announcement that might draw deja vu to Donald Trump’s announcement (both are billionaire reality stars running on a conservative platform), O’Leary says he is running for leadership of Canada’s Conservative Party in an effort to take over the role of Prime Minister from Justin Trudeau. Trudeau is up for reelection in 2019.
“I am the only one that can defeat Trudeau,” O’Leary, 62, stated on Facebook. O’Leary believes that Trudeau is placing a huge amount of debt upon the country, which he says he has ideas to fix (ideas he has yet to release).
Breaking with the Conservative Party, O’Leary is actually a supporter of legalizing marijuana, something that Trudeau campaigned on (but has yet to follow through with).
In a recent interview with Business Insider, O’Leary stated; “This is like the end of prohibition. It’s going to be a remarkable opportunity. The cashflow in Colorado is three times what they thought it was going to be. They did the right thing by legalizing it and it’s now a huge cash crop. People should not be going to jail for marijuana. This is substance that’s been used by humans for thousands of years. It’s stupid what we’ve done to it, and I think it has to be federally legal.”
Also in breaking with the Conservative Party, O’Leary says he’s a supporter of LGBT rights and assisted suicide, among other progressive causes.

My name is Oro Cas and I thought it was time to start writing. My style of writing and what I share here may not be “the norm” here on Word Press but I have never really been normal so here goes…
To fill this space on a regular basis I have decided to share not only stories and tales of my life but also a slew of pictures and videos, along with many things I talk about and share on social media.
Take for instance this lovely piece of art I found on FB this morning. I think this picture is worth more like millions of words instead of a thousand.
The so-called war on drugs was a totally failure that cost the American taxpayers trillions of dollars over the years. The results we have today from that war are depicted above in what some would call a very exaggerated way but for anyone who has found themselves in a similar situation as the one above then the level of exaggeration falls noticeably.
I have been involved with cannabis in one form or another since my first toke on a joint at the age of 14. That’s a story for another day but my point is I am a walking library on the subject and most things associated with it.
I want to cover all topics I find important at the age of 55 and I think some of those topics may surprise some of you, but that’s the whole idea here. As stated before, there will be pictures, videos, and lots of stories as I try to make this little space happen so stay tuned… I’m just getting warmed up…
