Being one of the 420 beta users picked daily, I got a early look at Snopp Dogg’s newest media outlet Merry Jane. Announced last month at TechCrunch‘s Disrupt, alongside Ted Chung, founder of the Cashmere Agency, the duo laid out their plans for a new marijuana based media site. With news, dispensary listings, reviews, original video content like cooking, comedy and a documentary series called Deflowered, detailing people’s first encounter with medical marijuana. The new website aims to be the cultural hub for everything related to the culture. “ESPN is Sports, Vogue is Fashion, Rolling Stone is Music and today Merry Jane is Cannabis” said Snoop Dogg in his presentation.
Merry Jane as a long way to go to be the definitive source for everything marijuana, with media entities like High Times, Pot TV and others already in the new media landscape. The new site will have to distinguish itself from the rest in some way, but with icon Snoop Dogg at the helm, the new project already has the highest established credentials
except for maybe Willie Nelson brand marijuana that others had to earn thru time.
