Jersey City’s budding cannabis industry just got a jolt of star power.
Medicine Woman, a proposed cannabis dispensary co-owned by actor and rapper Ice-T and former Playboy Playmate and cannabis expert Charis Burrett was approved by the city’s Cannabis Control Board meeting Monday night.
Three other applicants, Medusa NJ, Oceanfront Holdings and The Other Side Dispensary were also approved by the board.
Ice-T, whose real name is Tracy Lauren Marrow, has a home in Edgewater, but told the board he decided to place his dispensary in Jersey City because it would be better for business.
“There’s only one street there in Edgewater, that’s why I kind of voided them out. I said ‘Let’s go to Jersey City, my neighbor.’ I’m here every night and going out, I love Jersey City.”
