SANTA ANA, Calif. (AP) - Los Angeles-based rapper The Game is the latest celebrity to become a player in the marijuana industry.

The Orange County Register reported Tuesday (https://bit.ly/2bEBlet ) that the hip-hop artist whose real name is Jayceon Taylor has become part owner of The Reserve, one of 10 licensed medical marijuana dispensaries in Santa Ana.

The newspaper says The Game is also developing branded strains of marijuana flowers and concentrates that will be available at The Reserve and other dispensaries.

The Compton native, who has garnered headlines for his anti-violence efforts, says he considers medical marijuana access a human rights issue.

He joins other pot-friendly celebrities that have marketed industry products including Snoop Dogg, Willie Nelson and Whoopi Goldberg.
