Trump Endorsed By Anti-Pot Billionaire Adelson's 'Las Vegas Review Journal'



Adelson and Trump:


According to Adelson's Forbes profile, "heavyweight Sheldon Adelson pledged allegiance to Donald Trump in May 2016..." In addition to that endorsement, Sheldon Adelson's newspaper, The Las Vegas Review Journal, just endorsed Trump as well, as announced via Trump on Twitter, as seen below.


The editorial in The Las Vegas Review Journal states that "Mr. Trump represents neither the danger his critics claim nor the magic elixir many of his supporters crave." This may or may not be the case, but it seems like the support of Adelson could make Mr. Trump a serious danger to the legalization of marijuana, given his recent contributions to fight the legalization in many states. 


It seems as if Sheldon Adelson is using every lever he can to steer voters in the upcoming election. 


Bought the Media:


Since Adelson purchased the newspaper, it has stopped its support of marijuana legalization for his home state of Nevada. So, while the $140 million he spent to purchase the paper brings him many other media-control benefits as well, we can still look at the purchase as a $140 million investment in the continued no-tolerance policy for marijuana. Marijuana Majority's founder, Tom Angell said it best in his tweet featured below:
