OTISVILLE, Mich. (AP) -- A Michigan medical marijuana facility is partnering with a member of the Grammy-winning rap group Bone Thugs-N-Harmony to cultivate and distribute a new strain of medical marijuana.
The Green Oasis and Stanley "Flesh-N-Bone" Howse have agreed to work together on "Phifty Caliber Kush," which they say has a noticeable floral taste and is an effective pain reliever.
The Flint-area dispensary's owner, Anthony Butler, calls the new pot strain "the best of the best."
Flesh-n-Bone Global executive Michael "Tony B." Bernardi tells The Flint Journal (http://bit.ly/14bKODM ) that Howse hopes the product can provide relief for any qualified, verified patient.
In addition to distributing "Phifty Caliber Kush," The Green Oasis could begin selling merchandise and possibly host a visit from Howse.
Michigan voters approved marijuana for some chronic medical conditions in 2008.
