The reggae musician is opening the retail space in partnership with Tru Cannabis.
Damian "Jr. Gong" Marley today announced the opening of Stony Hill, a new weed dispensary he is opening in partnership with Colorado-based dispensary company Tru Cannabis. The new retail space, which opens next Thursday (Sept. 22), will feature a full line of cannabis-based retail products, including edibles, extracts and a variety of different strains.
Marley's entry into the dispensary game marks the first time a major music artist has opened a pot retail space. "I didn't know in my lifetime I'd be opening a dispensary," Marley tells Billboard. "We've always been advocates of legalizing 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."
