A Historic Christmas Eve Encounter Between John Lennon And Pierre Trudeau

Happy holidays, everyone! Since Christmas Eve falls on a Thursday this year, we thought we'd dig up a throwback to Dec. 24, 1969, when Trudeaumania and Beatlemania collided.

After talking to the Le Dain Commission in Montreal about his views on cannabis, John Lennon and Yoko Ono traveled to Ottawa to meet with Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau.

"Right now we're just overwhelmed [from] meeting Mr. Trudeau because he's really such a beautiful person - more beautiful than we expected," Ono told reporters after the meeting. "We got great incentives just by meeting him and seeing that there are such people like him in the Establishment."

Here's the full interview, with footage of the historic event. The audio kicks in about the 30-second mark:

The "Better Now" singer will release the first products from his new cannabis brand in the coming weeks. Post Malone first teased the arrival of his new Shaboink line of cannabis products back in May, and now it looks like Post is finally ready to bring launch the new brand with the help of premium cannabis brand Sherbinskis. For the launch Post Malone worked with Sherbinskis' founder Mario Guzman to develop the 'Posty OG' terpene profile that will be featured in Shaboink's non-intoxicating hemp pre-rolls.
