Jay-Z just got onboard with the legal weed hustle. Today (July 9), cannabis company Caliva announced it has named the Brooklyn multi-hyphenate its Chief Brand Strategist.

Reportedly it’s a multiyear deal and Jigga is tasked with “driving creative direction, outreach efforts and strategy” for the brand. We’re going to say he has experience in such matters.

Part of Mr. Carter’s duties includes the participation of individuals who were incarcerated for their illegal marijuana activities. The goal is giving the aforementioned a fair shot at getting in the game post-legalization.

“Anything I do, I want to do correctly and at the highest level,” said Jay-Z via a press statement. “With all the potential in the cannabis industry, Caliva’s expertise and ethos makes them the best partner for this endeavor. We want to create something amazing, have fun in the process, do good and bring people along the way.”

Caliva is a cannabis consumer products company that was founded in 2015. The brand boasts a first-place finish in the 2019 High Times Cannabis Cup thanks to the “Z-Cube” in the Best Hybrid category. Other products it sells include vapes, tinctures and beverages.

Jay-Z wins, again.

The Nation’s Capital will undoubtedly be draped in a curious haze of smoke this coming Saturday (April 20), most especially the grounds of RFK Stadium. The fourth annual National Cannabis Festival kicks off at noon on 420, with Ludacris and Action Bronson sharing the top billing.

Along with Luda and Bronsolini, Washington’s legendary Go-Go band, The Junkyard Band, will also take the NCF stages. Joining the aforementioned acts are reggae band Strykers Posse, brass band Black Masala, and DJ Farrah Flosscett.

While music and, ahem, the sticky green leaf will be the center of the festivities tomorrow, NCF organizers also held a National Cannabis Policy Summit earlier today (April 19) at Washington’s Newseum, and we’ve breezed through to find a well-attended event with some of the most knowledgeable marijuana advocates and activists in the region and beyond.
