Roseanne Barr has long served cannabis as an outspoken advocate for its use as medicine. In spring of this past year, she shared she suffers from macular degeneration and glaucoma. She expects ultimately to go blind and uses cannabis to help her manage symptoms. Barr has also been open in her love of cannabis as a tool for escaping what she refers to as “mind control.”
Also a one-time presidential candidate with relatively new documentary in play, Barr is turning her love for cannabis into an investment.
CalCann Holdings, a group focused on obtaining new dispensary licenses and conditional use permits in municipalities in Southern California, has recently announced a partnership with Barr to open a dispensary in Santa Ana, California.
“Roseanne’s Joint is a dispensary joint venture with Roseanne Barr that will open in May2016. The dispensary will occupy 5,000 square feet. Roseanne will likely pursue additional marijuana-related ventures which can benefit the new store.”
