On Noisey: This guy is the only person to nail the Dr. Dre "smoke weed every day" line.

In a new business venture that should surprise virtually nobody, Rihanna is reportedly starting her own line of weed. According to a statement from 18 Karat Reggae Gold, Rihanna announced the line at the The High Times Cannabis Cup in Negril, Jamaica over the weekend. It's called "MaRihanna," and rumored strains include Karibbean Kush, Haitian Haze, and Jamaican High Grade, plus a selection of edibles.

RiRi has never been shy about her affection for Mary Jane. Her Instagram is full of photos of her smoking joints and sporting pot leaves; in 2012, she posted a photo of her rolling a blunt on her bodyguard's head. On 4/20 this year, she dropped a new track called "James Joint," which was quickly dubbed a stoner anthem. It opens with the lines "I'd rather be smoking weed whenever we breathe'—so, yeah, Rihanna loves marijuana.

According to the statement, Rihanna said that MaRihanna would be "truly the first mainstream cannabis brand in the world and [I'm] proud to be a pioneer. MaRihanna is blazing a trail for the industry."

The reports have yet to be confirmed by either Rihanna or anyone in her camp, but if the statement from 18 Karat Reggae Gold is true, stoners can expect to find MaRihanna on dispensary shelves in Colorado, Alaska, Oregon, and Washington in the first quarter of 2016.
