Method Man is looking to help level the playing field in the cannabis industry by encouraging more Black ownership and partnering with four Black-owned dispensaries as early as this weekend.
Known for his work with Wu-Tang Clan, Method Man, whose real name is Clifford Smith, has a 20 per cent ownership stake in the new company, Tical. Named after his solo debut album, Tical stands for Taking Into Consideration All Lives.
So far, Tical has raised US$300,000 with New York-based JLS Fund and the new weed business is aiming high, hoping to bring in US$3 million for a nationwide rollout, according to Bloomberg News.
