NJ Governor Says He’s ‘Honored’ To Have Cannabis Strain Named After Him During Tour Of Grow Facility

Marijuana Moment report

The governor of New Jersey says he’s “honored” to have a marijuana product named after him, and he wants to build upon the state’s legalization law to provide “more equity, more reward and redemption” for people impacted under prohibition.

During a tour of a cannabis cultivation facility this week, Gov. Phil Murphy (D) posed for a photo of him holding a promotional flier for the “Murphy’s Sourz” strain from Prolific Growhouse, described as a “delightful mix of sour lemon, sweet tangerine, with hints of diesel and pine.”

David Nicolas, CEO of Prolific Growhouse, told WHYY that he was hoping to catch the governor’s attention by producing the strain with his namesake, but “I didn’t expect him to give me a surprise visit.”

Murphy paid the visit to the Black-owned operation, and he used the opportunity to call for further reform, saying he still wants to see “more equity, more reward and redemption for the folks who were crushed by the war on drugs.”
