Actor Jaleel White, better known as Steve Urkel from the 90s sitcom Family Matters, is another celebrity who has joined the ranks of the cannabis industry
He’s partnered with cannabis brand 710Labs and launched his line called ItsPurpl this week on 4/20
And yes… it will certainly include varieties of the famed cannabis strain Purple Urkel
On the brand’s website, White wrote, “Anyone who knows me personally as Jaleel White, knows I am an ardent seeker of curated adventures, big laughs, and excellent food… All three of these interests are enormously enhanced by top-shelf cannabis.”
He also hopes to debunk stereotypes associated with cannabis and celebrate its medical breakthroughs.
Next in news,
Legislation that would decriminalize the possession of psychedelics has passed through two Senate committees in California.
The bill is sponsored by Sen. Scott Weiner and would also provide expungements for offenses that the measure makes lawful
Weiner was quoted telling his colleagues, “We have spent trillions in the last half-century on the war on drugs, more people are using drugs now, there’s more addiction, there are more overdoses—I’m talking about drugs generally, not psychedelics. And we have busted taxpayer dollars, and we need to move towards a more health-based approach.”
The bill is slated to head to another senate Committee for another vote next so stay tuned!
Uber’s CEO says the company will certainly take a look at possibly adding cannabis delivery once the plant is legalized on the federal level.
As of right now, there are more states that have legalized cannabis in some capacity than those that have not.
New York recently legalized adult use and even added in a measure that allows for cannabis delivery.
And delivery is available in California, Nevada, and Oregon for those 21 years old and up.
So, it definitely makes sense that Uber would be interested in eventually jumping in the game
In the meantime, the company is going to focus on its food delivery services UberEats until the opportunity for cannabis arises.

Up until recently, lack of cannabis education meant that people were blissfully unaware of the fact that the plant is not limited to just one strain and, therefore, does not produce just one type of effect. Fortunately, agricultural experimentation has led to the market exploding in terms of strains that can satisfy everyone, from beginners…
