Roseanne Barr to Open Medical Marijuana Dispensary

Roseanne’s Joint will offer weed-laced macadamia nuts grown on comedian’s farm, among other goods

Roseanne Barr is going to pot with her latest business venture.

The former “Roseanne” star and presidential candidate has joined the cannabis industry, via a medical marijuana dispensary that will open in Santa Ana, California, the Orange County Register reports.

Barr is investing in the dispensary and will enter a licensing agreement with the business.

The name of the dispensary? Roseanne’s Joint, of course.

In a statement, Barr said the dispensary will be a “responsible, contributing member” of the community.

“I’m proud to be a cultural pioneer at the forefront of another wave of progress! And we’re proud of the city of Santa Ana as we continue to move into the era of recognizing cannabis as the natural, therapeutic, herbal substance medical science has proven it to be,” Barr said. “Roseanne’s Joint will be a responsible, contributing member of, and addition to, the community.”

According to dispensary partner Aaron Herzberg, the business will offer chocolate-covered macadamia nuts grown on Barr’s farm and laced with marijuana, among other mind-expanding delicacies.

Barr, 63, revealed last year that she suffers from macular degeneration and glaucoma, and that she smokes marijuana as a form of self-medication for the condition.

“It’s good for me for that because I have pressure in my eyes,” she said. “It’s a good medicine for a lot of things.”
