Sheldon Adelson Donates Another $1.5 Million to Anti-Medical Marijuana Group


Just say no to Sheldon Adelson.

With a net worth of $37 billion, casino magnate Sheldon Adelson, has donated another $1.5 million to the No On 2 campaign (or, Drug Free Florida) — the biggest medical marijuana opposition in the state of Florida. He had helped kick off the campaign when he donated $2.5 million to get things started back in June.
The 80-year-old Adelson, who has been a big-time contributor to conservative campaigns throughout his life, is chairman and chief executive officer of the Las Vegas Sands Corp., which runs the Venetian Resort Hotel Casino and the Sands Expo and Convention Center in Las Vegas. Oh yeah, he has also funded drug addiction clinics in Nevada and Israel and believes pot to be a gateway drug. Broward-Palm Beach New Times has more.
