Inspectah Deck (nee Jason Hunter) is the latest Wu-Tang Clan member to have a cannabis brand. He’s teamed up with Massachusetts craft hash rosin producer Coyote Cannabis.
Deck tells the Grow Bud Yourself podcast: “I met a great cannabis lawyer, Blake Mensing. He wanted to get me more into the business. I’m not normally into the vape pens, the oils and waxes that are out there. He convinced me to try some shatter. I was impressed with the quality of it. A lot of the market is full of celebrities who endorse these products mainly for the check. They haven’t really tried their product. Some of them are really low budget. The hash rosin gave me a nice feeling. I was able to hit that and it felt like this is dope, this is good. I came in as a small partner. We have a Rollie Fingers line of prerolls. My alias in the group is Rollie Fingers because I like to roll up. I’m a hand’s on guy. They are helping me put my foot in the game… You never know, Inspectah Deck may retire from Wu-Tang and be like Tommy Chong, be like a cannabis advocate for the rest of my days.”
Ed. note: Rollie Fingers is a Hall of Fame relief pitcher and Cy Young Award winner who played for the A’s and several other teams in the ’70s and ’80s.
Deck joins Method Man (Tical) and Ghostface Killah (Wu-Goo) in the weed game.
Raekwon also owns three Hashtoria stores in Oregon. However, his recent bid to open a consumption lounge in Newark was rejected.
The other Wu-Tang Clan members are: RZA, GZA, Masta Killa, U-God and Cappadonna. Ol’ Dirty Bastard passed away in 2004. (Full Story)
