|Counterculture icon and lifelong pothead Dennis Hopper may soon be immortalized with a strain of marijuana
Dennis Hopper had such an impact on cannabis culture, he should be immortalized with his very own strain of marijuana, according to famed pot activist Craig X Rubin.
Rubin, who runs Temple 420, a medical marijuana church/dispensary in Los Angeles, said Hopper has been an icon in the pot community ever since his Easy Rider days, when he, Peter Fonda and Jack Nicholson smoked real weed while filming the movie.
Over the years, Hopper never denied his love for Mary Jane and, as Rubin explained, “He made it acceptable to be a pothead.”
Rubin said it only makes sense for growers and stoners to name a marijuana strain after the late actor, possibly called “The Hopper.”
“I’d go get an ounce of that right now and get hopped up on The Hopper,” Rubin said.
Rubin said he knows for a fact that Hopper toked until his dying days, because the actor would buy $750 in medical marijuana each week from Rubin’s friend.
Hopper, 74, died Saturday, May 29, after a long illness with prostate cancer.
