New Tom Cruise Marijuana Really Bugging Out Tom Cruise
Continuing our efforts to cover all things green (remember that story about Weeds getting some eco-packaging?), we present to you the latest entertainment news concerning the world’s favorite illegal substance. While many enthusiasts will assure you that you can’t get any better than the gorilla glue strain, it looks as though somebody has tried their hand at an alternative.
This one is hilarious. And you don’t even need to be high to enjoy it.
Apparently, there is a new strain of medical marijuana out there being marketed as “Tom Cruise Purple“. Why the dubious honor? The weed is reportedly so potent that it causes you to see things that aren’t really there. Obviously, only people with a med card will know for sure. We all know Tom is heavy into the Scientology side of things — so we’re thinking this is probably where the joke is being directed. Of course, the actor isn’t backing the moniker — especially with his past objections to psychotropic drugs — and is getting his legal team into action. From the article,
“Word is that the actor’s lawyers are taking a serious look at the strong brand of bud after we brought it to their attention. One of Cruise’s friends found it ‘outrageous’ that licensed cannabis clubs in Northern California are selling vials of pot featuring a picture of Cruise laughing hysterically. I guess if you were looking to venture in this industry, this story would be one to tell about what not to do when it comes to dealing with the marijuana packaging and branding side of it all. Hopefully, they will learn from their mistakes.
Staffers at several California clinics we called said they were forbidden to discuss any of the herbal varieties in their ‘inventory.’ But one weed devotee said, ‘I heard it’s the kind of pot that makes you hallucinate.'”
Awesome. We really hope Kevin Nealon’s character gets an opportunity to sample this fine bud on the next season of Weeds. And Tom? Chill out man — it’s all good.
