It’s Here: Marley Weed

It’s just a matter of time before marijuana becomes legal in a big chunk of the Western world. It’s already started in the US in places like Colorado.

Marley Natural, a New York-based pot start-up that has lots of Silicon Valley money behind it, released a new line of weed varieties for sale in dispensaries in California with plans to introduce it to four other US states. From The Verge:

The marijuana line announced today includes four strains of cannabis flower and oil — Marley Green, Red, Gold, and Black — each grown to elicit different effects in smokers. Marley Green is described as a hybrid strain that’s “appropriate for anytime use,” while those looking for a “more physical, full-body experience” are encouraged to try the indica-heavy Marley Black. The weed is available today at three partner dispensaries in California for $50 an eighth (3.5 grams), with the cannabis oil (for use in vaporizers) priced at $40 per 500 mg. All four strains are locally grown in California and pesticide-free, and can be smoked with a Marley Natural pipe made of “sustainably grown” American black walnut. According to the company, that’s the only way Bob would have it.

Meanwhile, I was contacted by, Snoop Dogg’s dope company. They wanted to know if this website would be interesting in, uh, partnering for…something. I said “Sure! What do you have?” Stay tuned.
