Virgin Group boss Richard Branson didn't get where he is today by passing up opportunities.
So when he came face to face with President Obama at the White House Branson, a longtime advocate for the legalisation of marijuana, took the chance to ask the President a burning question.
“I asked him if I could have a spliff,” businessman and Virgin Group honcho Richard Branson told a crowd gathered at The Atlantic magazine's Washington offices the day after he attended the White House dinner.
“But they didn’t have any,” Branson said.
Was he joking?
Only he knows.
