Actress and model Pamela Anderson is most notable for playing C.J. Parker on the hit TV show “Baywatch” with David Hasselhoff. Before she began acting, Anderson was first “discovered” at a British Columbia Lions football game, where she was shown on the big stadium screen. This fame earned her a commercial contract with with Labatt's beer to be the Blue Zone girl. She then continued to model and act for commercials until she was approached by Playboy, and she was on the cover of Playboy Magazine by October 1989. Her success then brought her to Los Angeles where she made her TV debut in 1991 on “Home Improvement” as Lisa, the Tool Time Girl alongside Tim Allen, Patricia Richardson, and Richard Karn. This nationwide attention landed her another breakthrough role as C.J. Parker on “Baywatch”, which at the time became one of the most viewed television shows worldwide. Now, Anderson is an activist for a number of social causes including animal and human rights, and environmental issues.
Although she’s not quite as vocal as she is for animal rights, Anderson is also an advocate for the legalization of marijuana, “I’m looking forward for it to be safely regulated and legalized. I support the decriminalization of marijuana; I know it has helped many people. And nobody needs to go to jail for marijuana.” She was looking forward to legalization so much that she even allegedly wrote an open letter to President Obama addressing her concerns about the drug’s legalization, which she believes would only help, ““It would create jobs and be good for the environment."
