Joe Rogan Slams Corporate Marijuana Monopolies on His Podcast

Published on

Joe Rogan is no stranger to voicing his opinions about marijuana legalization. And while Rogan normally talks favorably about cannabis, he had some harsh words for corporate monopolies in the marijuana industry on his recent podcast.

Rogan and fellow comedian Joey Diaz discussed marijuana legalization in the most recent episode of the Joe Rogan Experience. During their discussion, Rogan talked about his worries about corporations taking over cannabis production and taking opportunities away from regular people.

So weed is gonna be legal, but only a couple of companies can grow it and monopolize,” Rogan said. That is such a corruption, that’s like saying: you can have tomatoes, but we are the only ones that can grow these f*cking tomatoes. Like why? It’s a f*cking tomato! That’s a law against nature.”

Rogan and Diaz also discussed the possibility of New York legalizing marijuana. Take a look at their full discussion: 

Rogan made headlines earlier this year when Tesla and SpaceX founder Elon Musk appeared on his podcast and smoked weed alongside the host. The incident got Musk in trouble with investors and the federal government. 

Maybe we should have Rogan testify in front of Congress on legalization to finally convince them to do the right thing.
