Wiz Khalifa releasing marijuana line

Wiz Khalifa is releasing his own range of marijuana products.

The 27-year-old rapper has teamed up with Colorado-based RiverRock Cannabis to create and manufacture a line of regulated marijuana strains, products and concentrates and is hoping his new venture will help end prohibition of the drug.

He said: "These products have taken years to perfect.

"I'm really excited to finally share them with the public and to work with RiverRock to raise awareness and end cannabis prohibition nationwide."

Wiz also has a partnership with RAW Rolling Papers, which sells smoking products.

The 'Black and Yellow' hitmaker isn't the only star to cash in on the marijuana business.

Last November, it was revealed Rihanna was launching her own brand called MaRihanna, which would feature marijuana flowers, edibles and concentrates for vapourisers in flavours including Karibbean Kush, Haitian Haze and Jamaica High Grade."

A statement on smokers website 18KaratReggae says: "MaRihanna by Rihanna is truly the first mainstream cannabis brand in the world and proud to be a pioneer."

Rihanna's range of products will be available this year in the four American states where recreational cannabis use is legal - Colorado, Washington, Oregon and Alaska.

And last year, 'Drop It Like It's Hot' rapper Snoop Dogg launched his own line of cannabis products named Leafs By Snoop.

He said in a statement recently: "It's a true blessing that I can share the products I love so much with y'all today. From the flower, to the concentrates, and edibles - it's all hand-picked by yours truly so you know it's the hottest product out there. It's the real deal and you gotta get out to Colorado to try it first!"
