Much like Tom Cruise a few years ago, Chuck Norris has become the latest celebrity with the dubious honor of having a new strain of marijuana named after him.
Back in April ’08, lawyers for Tom Cruise became “concerned” over licensed cannabis clubs in Northern California selling a strain of marijuana called “Tom Cruise Purple.” It reportedly featured a picture of Tom Cruise on the front laughing hysterically. Said one weed connoisseur, “I heard it’s the kind of pot that makes you hallucinate.”
Indeed, the new "Chuck Norris Black and Blue Dream" is described as having "quite the kick." Get it? Ha.
The owner of the Nirvana chain of head shops, Jim Bellamy, has denied plant cultivation kits being sold in his outlets and on his websites are encouraging people to grow cannabis plants.
Mr Bellamy told The Irish Times the equipment his shops sells are sold for "horticultural purposes".
"We don’t selling anything to people so that they can grow cannabis," he said.
While his shops were also selling cannabis seeds, he said the seeds were not banned here and were only sold by his outlets as "souvenirs".
"We have always sold them as souvenirs, it’s something that we’ve done as a tradition really."
