BEING A voluntary CFO of the Canadian Liberal Party is probably no easy thing – Off Balance imagines it to be a full-time job.
But incumbent Chuck Rifici can seem pretty relaxed and chilled about matters – what with him being a multi-millionaire and co-founder of Tweed Marijuana Inc. Yes, Rifici, who has done well for himself as a quick-witted entrepreneur, set up the medical marijuana facility Tweed.
As the Libertarians are pushing hard for marijuana legalisation in Canada, Rifici has been accused of having a conflict of interest.
As he cutely pointed out, he’s a business guy looking for the next ‘thing’, he wants to let people do what they want, and he’s a beer drinker. So smoke on that.
And maybe now, he’ll have more time for the Liberal Party, having resigned from Tweed.
