Jesse Ventura: The First US Governor to Enter the Cannabis Industry with Retro Bakery Collaboration.

Jesse Ventura, Former Governor, Ventures into the Cannabis Industry with New Line of Edibles

Jesse Ventura, the former Governor of Minnesota, has announced his entry into the cannabis industry. He has partnered with a Columbia Heights hemp company to create Ventura-branded lines of edibles. Ventura is thrilled about this venture and highlighted in a statement that he is the first US Governor to officially put his name on a Cannabis brand.

Ventura met with numerous cannabis companies before selecting Retro Bakery, a Black-owned small business near where he raised his family, to produce the products bearing his name. Retro Bakery will be responsible for developing all products using Jesse’s name and intellectual property for various product lines in the future. Additionally, a portion of the proceeds from specific products will be donated to charities supporting environmental cleanup, veterans, and individuals affected by the war on drugs.

Ventura has been an advocate for marijuana legalization for many years and testified in favor of it at the State Capitol. He shared a personal story about how marijuana helped alleviate his wife’s seizures ten years ago. Last year, when Minnesota Gov. Tim Walz signed a bill legalizing recreational marijuana, Ventura and his wife were present at the signing ceremony, expressing their support for the initiative.

Ventura’s entry into the cannabis industry is significant as it marks him as one of the first US Governors to officially endorse Cannabis brands. The collaboration between Ventura and Retro Bakery will result in Jesse Ventura Farms-branded products that will be sold in dispensaries across Minnesota.
