The burgeoning marijuana industry has seen plenty of high-profile musicians get involved — and another one just joined the list.
Platinum hip-hop recording artist, “The Game,” is now part-owner of a Santa Ana, California dispensary called The Reserve, The Orange County Register reported Tuesday.
The Game, whose real name Jayceon Terrell Taylor, is also making his own strain of buds, which will be sold first at The Reserve, then statewide by the end of the year.
“Our mission as a community is simple: safe and legal access to a plant that saves lives and changes futures,” the rapper wrote in a press release. He feels access to medical marijuana is a “human rights issue.”
“At the foundation of every emerging industry is good people willing to stand up, step out and pave the way for future generations to come,” the statement continued. “The Reserve is my platform for nationwide education and statewide access to consistent, locally grown, premium medicine.”
He joins other famous musicians like Snoop Dogg and Willie Nelson, who have already attached their names to the industry. Snoop has a line of pot called Leafs By Snoop, while Nelson has a line called Willie’s Reserve. Bob Marley’s family also has a weed line called Marley Natural.
