Miami, FL - Marijuana has finally become a family tradition for Ed “NJWeedman” Forchion and his five children, Chanel, Ajanea, Daeja, King and Vanessa. Considered by many to be the “Kardashians of Kush,” they are all busy holding down the day to day operations at his NJWeedman’s Joint in New Jersey as well as his new hip hop art and music lounge, The Joint of Miami in Florida. With Forchion now busy fielding offers to branch out and expand in other states, he is officially ‘passing The Joint’ to his son, King "Krefiii" Forchion appointing him CEO of The Joint of Miami. The ‘budding’ 23 year old will oversee a staff of weed loving employees who are working to enhance entertainment in Miami and infuse nightlife with the sweet aroma of Mary Jane. King is one of the youngest hip hop canna-preneur club owners in the nightlife industry.
The Joint of Miami, located in Miami’s trendy Wynwood Art District, officially opened the Fourth of July weekend, with "Krefriii" being thrown in the fire of learning to manage a bustling enterprise. As the first cannabis consumer friendly art and music lounge in Wynwood, the location boasts the work of visual artists from across the country as well as local Miami talent featured in the venue’s indoor and outdoor gallery. Nightly entertainment runs the gamut of comedy, spoken word, reggae, hip hop, jazz and even a Grateful Dead cover band. With a full bar and a ‘munchie’ food truck on site, the venue is set up as a haven for cannabis fueled enjoyment.
“This has been my dream for decades,” adds Ed. “My kids did without while I languished on the front lines fighting for legalization for decades. Finally, the world is waking up to what we have known for years. With cannabis now being commercialized however, its important that legacy participants like myself continue to stand our ground and secure our piece of this multi-billion-dollar industry. I’m extremely happy and proud to witness my son stand in my shoes, not as a worn-down activist, but as a young businessman. Even more than legalization, to be able to see my children follow in my footsteps, what more can a weed dad ask for!”
