Kyle Kaminski at the Lansing City Pulse shares the new pre-roll partnership between stoner legend Tommy Chong & Detroit’s MKX Oil Co:
A new line of prerolled joints is hitting the shelves at pot shops across Michigan this week featuring the name of one of the founding fathers of American cannabis culture: Tommy Chong.
Dispensaries in Greater Lansing will have to wait until later summer, but customers can head to several dozen pot shops elsewhere across Michigan beginning this week to purchase 12 new strains released in collaboration with Chong and the Detroit-based cannabis brand MKX Oil Co.
Strains include Cherry Punch; Donkey Butter; Cookies & Cream; Crunch Berries; Triple Chocolate Chip; Wedding Cake; Banana Daddy; MAC Gas; Purple Triangle Kush; OG Cookies; Purple Ghost; and Now & Later Cookies — all grown in Michigan, all stamped with Chong’s approval. At a virtual press conference this week, Chong couldn’t decide on his favorite.
“I’m the worst judge when it comes to this,” he told me. “I like everything. It’s so hard to pick a favorite with cannabis. I haven’t found my favorite yet, but I’m sure having fun testing them all.”
…Chong said his latest expansion — his first foray into Michigan’s cannabis market — is all part of his quest to “save the world” with pot, one pre-rolled joint at a time. Though he went through phases of using pipes and bongs, he said he mainly smokes joints nowadays. His latest advice? For a smoother and cooler temperature smoke, stuff the joint into a hollow piece of bamboo.
