Rapper and actor Ice-T is one of the first well-known personalities to claim his stake in the industry. The star of Law & Order has received a cannabis license by his native State of New Jersey and will open his own 5,000-square-feet dispensary in Jersey City, just a few miles from midtown Manhattan, this fall.
The project is carried forward in partnership with Charis B, who is the founder of famous cannabis brand The Medicine Woman.
“I’ve dedicated my life and career to giving back and paving the way for minorities,” the 64-year-old entrepreneur said in an official statement. “As a New Jersey native, I’m excited for the opportunity legalization offers our community, and I look forward to ushering in a new era for Cannabis in the state. “I’ve partnered with my friend of over 25 years, Charis B who is an authority in cannabis and founder of The Medicine Woman to ensure a premium experience for our customers and community.”
Ice-T actually owns a home in Edgewater, but made a business decision to open his new project elsewhere within
