Sadly, Rihanna Won’t Launch Marijuana Line Dubbed ‘MaRihanna’
Update, 11/19: All of your dreams of smoking MaRihanna weed in your Rihanna-designed Stance socks are dead. Rihanna's publicist responded to The Cut's e-mail inquiry with a firm denial of any plans for a Rihanna line of marijuana. It's almost enough to lower our opinion on the journalism standards of 'Celeb Stoner dot com'! As The Cut points out, Snoop Dogg's Leafs By Snoop is here to help you with your celebrity-branded pot needs.
Rihanna was once a lucrative pop artist who released music pretty consistently. And while her long-awaited eighth studio album Anti is supposed to drop at some point this millennium, no release date has been announced or (as far as we know) even secured. But Rihanna has many things for us to look forward to while we wait (including but not limited to socks, perfume, a second Diamond Ball and a styling agency called Fr8me), and she just announced one more: If recent reports are to be believed, the "FourFiveSeconds" singer will soon be selling weed.
According to the website Celeb Stoner, Rihanna will launch her very own line of weed called MaRihanna (do you get it? It sounds like marijuana). She reportedly made the announcement at the High Times Cannabis Cup in Negril, Jamaica, but there’s been no official confirmation from her camp as of yet.
The specific strains of weed will reportedly be called Karibbean Kush, Haitian Haze and Jamaican High Grade.
Rihanna, who has used Instagram to extensively document her longtime love of weed, allegedly said, "MaRihanna by Rihanna is truly the first mainstream cannabis brand in the world and proud to be a pioneer. Marihanna is blazing a trail for the industry.”
But she's not the first celebrity to peddle marijuana to the masses -- Snoop Dogg recently launched his own weed line called Leafs by Snoop during a private party in Denver, and singer Willie Nelson is set to release a line called Willie’s Reserve.
Rihanna’s MaRihanna will reportedly be available for purchase in states where the sale of marijuana is legal — Colorado, Washington, Oregon and Alaska.
