South Africans are focuses on marijuana this week after the ConCourt decriminalised the personal use of the dagga.
Pro-dagga South Africans celebrated a massive win for the cannabis community following the ruling, which they believed was a step in the right direction.
Although the legalisation of weed is new in South Africa, there are many who already built an empire with the herb.
So, Briefly.co.za decided to take a look at three men who made millions, or even billions, thanks to Marijuana.
1. Terry Booth
Terry Booth is the 54-year-old CEO of Aurora Cannabis. According to Fin24, Booth started dealing weed in high school. He grew his high school side-job into a luxurious business which is worth $95.1m.
2. Bruce Linton
Bruce Linton, 52, is the founder of Canopy Growth, one of the world’s largest marijuana companies.
The value of the company's stakes estimates $142.6 million.
3. John Cervini
Cervini started out in a small greenhouse business where he sold vegetables with his family. He left the family business and co-found Aphria Inc with his friend, Cole Cacciavillani.
Neither Cervini, 47, or his partner had any knowledge or experience with weed, but they ended up becoming one of the first publicly traded marijuana growers.
