Famous U.S. gangster rapper The Game has bought into one of 10 licensed Santa Ana, California marijuana dispensaries, reports confirm.
The hip-hop artist is tapping on the lax weed laws in most American states, to build a solid marijiana business empire.
The Games signs paperwork for his marijuana business.
The Game [real names Jayceon Terrell Taylor], who was personally chosen by Dr. Dre to join the defunct G-Unit, is now a proud co-owner of the weed shop named “The Reserve”.
By this newest business venture, the Los Angeles rapper may have actually taken a new title: “the American pot-mogul.” He’s reportedly developing new species of marijuana flowers and concentrates which will be marketed first at his Tech Center Drive shop.
By the end of 2016, it is expected that his branded weed will be available for grabs at other licensed dispensaries.
The Game is sure to make it big in this business with his status as a gangster, rapper, actor, reality TV owner, pot-mogu, and “a chain smoker”. Worthy of note is the fact that he’s into the business to “save lifes”, not ruin them.
“Our mission as a community is simple: safe and legal access to a plant that saves lives and changes futures,” The Game said in a statement, according to OCRegister.
“At the foundation of every emerging industry is good people willing to stand up, step out and pave the way for future generations to come,” Game said in a press release. “The Reserve is my platform for nationwide education and statewide access to consistent, locally grown, premium medicine.”

The Game has always rapped about his love for “ganja” and the good feeling it brings. He’s not the first celebrity to have found marijuana business, a money-spinning investment. Other marijuana-friendly celebrities include Snoop Dogg, Willie Nelson, Whoopi Goldberg and Bob Marley’s family.
The Compton native said he considers medical marijuana access a human rights issue.
