On the latest "Grilling JR" podcast, Jim Ross gave an update on the Black Hat Farms cannabis venture:
“Here’s the story on that deal. My daughter and her husband are creating the business. They created the business plan. They created everything in that regard. I bought some land to build some grow houses on and I funded them the seed money to get this thing started. That’s going to be, hopefully, my involvement. I may help with some marketing stuff or some names or things like that, but the bottom line is I wanted to do something for my kids while I was still alive.
I thought it was important to help them get this project started so they don’t have a debt service to a bank or something. It made me feel good that I’ve been able to help them and see the results. We hope to be up and doing something in 2022. I’m not sure when they’re going to harvest and all that stuff. I’m not involved in that. I haven’t even seen the land that I bought. It’s near Tulsa. My daughter is a really good marketer. She’s a good planner. She’s very successful in her work.
My son-in-law was a school teacher at Tulsa Rogers High School. He’s a smart kid. They studied this. I did it for them, not for JR, but I think we’re going to use the Black Hat thing. That was their idea. Anyway, that’s where we are on that deal. I’m not going to be out there everyday working in the farm, but they are, and that’s good enough for me.”
JR also provided an update on his cancer diagnosis and said that he has no plans to stop working. Click here for a complete update from JR. The latest "Grilling JR" podcast covers the 11/04/96 episode of WWE Monday Night Raw that included the infamous Brian Pillman gun angle with Steve Austin.
