That's a lotta hoolies!

From the Edmonton Journal:

Bob Erb has been buying lottery tickets for 43 years, and his persistence finally paid off.

On November 9th, the Terrace, British Columbia resident discovered that he held a winning ticket that split the $50 million jackpot from the November 2 draw. […]

Before he was a lottery winner, Erb might have been better-known to the Terrace community for his campaigns to legalize and decriminalize marijuana. He ran for the B.C. Marijuana Party in 2001.
