Friday, September 16, 2016 (Denver, CO)- GRAMMY® Award-winning artist
Damian “Jr. Gong” Marley announces a partnership with Colorado-based cannabis leader, Tru Cannabis, for the brand new Stony Hill dispensary in Denver.
An organically grown partnership, the Stony Hill brand reflects Damian’s style and goes beyond just the product line. This is a full retail dispensary brand where the artist’s inimitable presence can be immediately felt. He personally helped develop and test the dispensary’s namesake and signature-Stony Hill- and it is evocative of his music, passions, and roots.
While many artists have attached and licensed their names to products as part of today’s cannabis renaissance, Marley’s partnership marks the first true alliance between an artist and dispensary. In addition, this news is the first in a series of announcements Damian Marley plans to make this year regarding partnerships and business deals in the cannabis world.
The Stony Hill dispensary officially launches on September 22nd. To properly kick off the partnership, Damian will host an exclusive grand opening brand launch party that evening:
