If (not when) a Hall of Fame for tokens is established, Ross Rebagliati deserves a place on the list of the first ten smokers to be inducted.

For Rebagliati won a Gold Medal for his snowboarding performance at the 1998 Nagano Winter Olympics in Japan, but it was taken away from him when it was learned that he had tested positive for traces of THC.

When it was learned that marijuana was not listed as a banned drug, the medal was returned to him and pot was added to the list of forbidden substances for the competitors.

If that escapade doesn't get Rebagliati on the list of the first 10 inductees, then it will be interesting to see what anyone could possibly have done to be more qualified.

Started his own brand of pot, Ross Gold, in 2013.

As marijuana becomes more and more acceptable the need and opportunity for a hall of fame will become more apparent and the columnist will chronicle the history of this inevitable tourist attraction as it unfolds.

In future columns we will profile other famous pot smokers and explain why they might deserve to be included in the Pot Hall of Fame.

Who should be among the first ten smokers to be inducted?

Here are a few suggestions:

Sgt. Sunshine, Peter Tosh, Bob Marley, Cheech and Chong, actor Robert Mitchum and Willie Nelson.

Readers are invited to add their suggestions in the comments section and explain why the person deserves consideration.

'Til next time, puff, puff, pass "
