There’s finally a medical marijuana dispensary coming geared towards a different kind of clientele: grandparents!
Roseanne Barr, the 63-year-old comedian from the 90s hit show Roseanne, will soon open a dispensary in Santa Ana, California aptly named “Roseanne’s Joint.” A medical marijuana patients herself, Roseanne suffers from a debilitating form of glaucoma that’s causing her to lose her eyesight.
She promises to sell “unique” marijuana strains and products like “pot-laced, chocolate-covered macadamia nuts” which sound delectable. Roseanne will also make “occasional appearances” at the dispensary which has not yet opened for business.
While the industry has seen plenty of recent collaborations between cannabis brands and celebrities like Snoop Dogg, Wiz Khalifa, Tommy Chong, and many more, it’s rare to see a female enter the sphere, and even rarer to see a senior citizen who’s also a female enter the the cannabis industry.
Roseanne joins Melissa Etheridge (who’s producing cannabis wine) as the second notable female to join the green rush. At this point, it would come as no surprise if other female icons that share a love for cannabis, like known activists Susan Sarandon or Whoopi Goldberg, soon follow suit.
