The son of late reggae icon Bob Marley is teaming up with bosses at Colorado-based dispensary company Tru Cannabis to open Stony Hill, according to Billboard.com. The dispensary will launch next week (begs19Sep16) and will feature products including different strains of marijuana, edibles and extracts.
Recreational marijuana was legalised in the state in 2014 and Marley is thrilled he was able to see the law passed.
“I didn’t know in my lifetime I’d be opening a dispensary,” he tells Billboard. “We’ve always been advocates of legalising marijuana and we always had the hope in our lifetime that we’d be involved in something like this, but I didn’t predict this would happen.”
The store is named after an area in Jamaica where the 38-year-old spent his childhood.
“Stony Hill is a place in Jamaica I grew up so it has a lot of significance,” he says.
