Memes, Snoop, and Snoop Dogg: Snoop Dogg's Cannabis Firm Raises $45 Million For Investments In Weed Industry @balleralert APE Snoop Dogg’s Cannabis Firm Raises $45 Million For Investments In Weed Industry - blogged by @MsJennyb ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ SnoopDogg has locked down $45 million to invest into cannabis startups. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Back in 2015, the legendary rapper and weed connoisseur co-founded an ancillary cannabis industry venture firm to invest in the business. However, Snoop’s Casa Verde Capital is not investing in the dispensaries or the actual weed growing process, but into the picks and shovels used for the process, the Grio reports. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Now, with the new $45 million fund, which is reportedly the largest in the industry, Snoop is reportedly ready to invest no less than $1 million in each company. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “Our biggest investment to date is LeafLink, a marketplace for retailers and brands,” his managing partner Karan Wadhera said. “If you were Walmart and logging onto a platform to order from vendors, that’s what LeafLink has created for the cannabis space. A dispensary can log in and order from vendors on one consolidated platform.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ As for Snoop’s involvement though, Wadhera says the rapper is all about their lifestyle media website. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “That’s content. That’s media. That’s Snoop’s bread and butter,” Wadhera said. “He mainly handles the financial modeling. He’s among the most important cultural figures in this industry, which is incredibly important. His involvement lends a lot of credibility and excitement to our portfolio companies. He’s also there for input whenever we need it.”

Drugs, Guns, and Irs: DEA DEA DEA ENCE FVACEENDENCE ENIDENCE EVIDENCIE 2 DEA Feds Seize $22M Worth Of Weed Shipped From Cali To NYC For "Operation Green Giant" 👀🍁💰 Local police working with federal agents arrested ten alleged members of a Bronx gang this week, accusing the perpetrators of shipping $22 million worth of marijuana from California to New York. According to the U.S. Attorney's Office for the Southern District, the alleged gang members sent over 6,600 pounds of pot from California to residences, businesses, and eventually stash houses in the city and in New Rochelle. Officials called the venture "Operation Green Giant," probably because marijuana is green, and 6,600 pounds is a large amount of the plant, which is legal in a number of states. Agents with the DEA, IRS, and U.S. Homeland Security worked in tandem with the NYPD to make the busts on Wednesday and Thursday, yielding three handguns, a sawed-off shotgun, ammunition, cash, and cocaine, in addition to hundreds of pounds of marijuana. "As alleged, these defendants conspired to ship millions of dollars’ worth of drugs across the country for eventual sale in New York City," acting Manhattan U.S. Attorney Joon H. Kim said in a statement yesterday. "Searches of apartments where the defendants allegedly resided uncovered guns and ammunition, multiple kilograms of cocaine, hundreds of pounds of marijuana, and thousands of dollars in cash." Officials say the alleged gang members started running the operation in March 2016. The defendants have been charged with conspiracy to distribute narcotics and use of firearms in furtherance of narcotics trafficking. The top charge could net the accused life in prison, if convicted. (Via @gothamist) @worldstar WSHH
