Joe Exotic launches its own line of cannabis.
Tiger King star’s attorney Brad Small said that Joe got the idea last year and a deal has now been sealed for him to partner with Tango Hotel Charlie Group, LLC and Cannaxxs LTD to open Joe Exotic cannabis to bring the market.
Exotic – who is serving a 22-year prison term for plotting to kill rival Carole Baskin – is reportedly directly involved in the deal through phone calls and emails with his attorney.
Small told TMZ that the products contain CBD foods and are sold in California, Colorado and Oklahoma. Exotic wants to help people who need cannabis to relieve their pain from various ailments.

Small said the line would hit the market in the coming weeks, with a portion of Exotic’s profits going towards caring for captive tigers.
Last month, Exotic announced that he was suffering from prostate cancer that was devastating his body.
The 58-year-old former zookeeper said, “John Phillips [Joe’s lawyer] received my medical records from FMC Fort Worth and my PSA is very high from prostate cancer.
“The prison has approved tests to see what stage it’s in. My body is tired, I’ve lost tremendous weight, my mouth sores are out of control, I vomit more than I eat.”
Exotic – real name Joseph Schreibvogel – also called on President Joe Biden and other US politicians to release him from prison with a presidential pardon.
He wrote, “I don’t want anyone to feel sorry. What I need is if John Phillips gets the evidence he’s working on, see that it’s not just the town cops that are getting out of hand over the corruption, but his own Department of Justice, and get it right and sign it the pardon Trump left behind so that I could go home and get proper medical care and real food. “
