What Surprising Celebrities Might Influence/Grace the Cover of Custom Packaging in Your Store?

You read right. Billionaire dropout and Microsoft founder Bill Gates voted “Yes” to initiative 502 for the legalization of recreational marijuana in Washington State. His reasoning: “It’s probably good to have a couple states try it out to see before you make it national policy.” Smart man. (Maybe he’s also developing an app for the marijuana supplies industry behind-the-scenes.)
