  1. Welk was on a Canadian talk show, The Pierre Berton Show, in the early 1970s and Welk told Berton that he had used marijuana for years, from his early days in bands in the late 1920s. It wasn’t until the 1950s that he became aware that marijuana was illegal, so he said. By that time he was a comfortable smoker and believed that it should have been legalized. In the late sixties, Bing Crosby expressed that marijuana should have been legalized years before.
