Wavves' Nathan Williams has revealed that he has looked into getting the band their own strain of weed.

The frontman explained how he wanted to expand the group's merchandise range, which currently includes rolling papers and a weed grinder.

"I smoke too much weed, I think that's how I come up with these things," Nathan Williams told Spinner. "I've tried to get a strain of weed. Willie Nelson has one, Snoop Dogg has one. That would be really cool. It would just be called 'Wavves' because I think that would be a pretty good name."

"No bongs or pipes, though," he continued. "That's how they threw [Tommy] Chong in jail, I'm not going to fuck with that; the rolling papers and grinders are enough for now."

Currently on a co-headline tour with Best Coast in North America, Williams also explained that he is working on a comic.

"There's a lot of other things in the works, not just weed-related," he said. "I'm writing a comic right now with a friend of mine so I'll probably bring that along pretty soon [as merchandise]."
