Jay Z Gets Into the Cannabis Business


Rapper Jay Z is the new face of cannabis company Caliva...
 
From The Daily Mail
Billionaire rapper Shawn 'Jay-Z' Carter is entering the fast-growing legal cannabis industry, taking a role with California company Caliva as a strategist.
Privately owned Caliva, formed in San Jose in 2015, said on Tuesday that Jay-Z had entered a long-term partnership in which he will focus on outreach and the creative direction of the company.
The rapper, whose formal title with Caliva will be chief brand strategist, will also further his social justice efforts by increasing job training for former prisoners as well as fostering quality and fairness in the development of the legal marijuana industry, the company said in a statement.
'We want to create something amazing, have fun in the process, do good and bring people along the way,' the rapper said in a statement.

That's what we need more of -- not education or community investment; weed investment. Got it. But what else would I expect from a "Billionaire" like JayZ. And yeah, it's his money and he can do whatever the hell wants with it. Blah, blah, blah. That don't make it right. Black people made him rich and now he wants to keep them high. Go figure.

How much more fucking money does this nigga need? And who gives a fuck what whitey doing? FOH bitch!!

Just cause whitey does it and makes money off it, don't make it right. We've got to get out of this mindset of following them into any and every hell driven impulse/endeavor they can think up. We've got to do what's right for OUR people. And keeping us high ain't it. I don't care if it's legal or monetized. All money ain't good money. We've got to be about education and building ourselves up, not investing in what will create stronger versions of ourselves, not compromised ones.

Of all the things you could have invested in Jay--do better by us.

Cannabis is medicine. Not a drug. Talk about drinking the kill aid smdh. However, Caliva is white owned company and real cannabis activists do not buy from them. There are black owned companies he could have partnered with instead.
