Jay-Z is heading into the legal marijuana industry as a chief brand strategist in partnership with a California cannabis product company.

He says he also wants to increase the economic participation of people returning from incarceration through job training and workforce development.


The rapper called Caliva “the best partners for this endeavor.”


Caliva operates a farm and two stores in Northern California. It also distributes its branded products in roughly two dozen other retail outlets in the state.
