Post Malone is getting into the marijuana business. According to a report from TMZ, Posty will be launching his new cannabis business named “Shaboink” on his 24th birthday — July 4. Malone previously gave a look at the cannabis trade show Hall of Flowers at the Sonoma County Fairgrounds in Santa Rosa, California.
Shaboink will specialize in “a line of flower, pre-roll joints and vaporizers,” according to the report.
The marijuana used by Post Malone’s company will be grown and manufactured by California-based company Hemper. Shaboink will include THC and CBD products, along with grinders, hats, stickers, rolling papers, and glassware.
Post Malone previously expressed his love of marijuana in an interview with the celebrity gossip site.
“This is good for everybody, weed if good for everybody,” Malone said. “Ain’t nobody die from that sh*t. People die from drinking and driving every f*cking day.”
Post Malone is just the latest celebrity to roll out his own marijuana company, joining the likes of Snoop Dogg, Mike Tyson, Ghostface Killah, Whoopi Goldberg, and the Marley family, among many others.
