Cypress Hill’s B-Real to open medical marijuana dispensary

The new Cypress Hill album is set for release this summer

Cypress Hill‘s B-Real is set to open a medical marijuana dispensary.

The musician will be running the new business in Orange County, California, reports Billboard, after he was one of the six applicants out of 630 granted the right to open such an outlet in the area.

Speaking about the dispensary, he commented: “I definitely want it to be eye candy, eye-popping, eye-catching, an experience. We want it to be a place where you can come get quality meds responsibly and all that stuff, but we want it to be an experience as well.”


When asked if he would ever perform in the dispensary, he responded: “If we could lay it out properly to where the city is okay with that, sure. Or if there’s enough room within the complex that we’re operating out of, yeah. That’s not something that would be foreign to us because we have the ability to put that on. We have the experience and we have the right people in place to make that happen.”

B Real releases a new mixtape tomorrow (February 18), under the Dr. Greenthumb name. ‘The Prescription’ will feature appearances from A$AP Ferg, Ab-Soul and Snoop Dogg. He added that the new Cypress Hill record will likely be out this summer. “The Cypress record is almost done, it’ll probably be out late summer or towards August,” he said. “I really don’t know the date on that. But that’s close and I’m sure we’ll be touring for some time off that. But realistically all my focus right now is on the Dr. Greenthumb brand before I get into the Cypress stuff because usually when I get into Cypress it takes over like a wave.
