The tech enthusiast, whose company, Raycon, hit $10M in sales in less than a year, is now venturing into a weed business called William Ray LA that will specialize in growing, branding and marketing “mary jane,” TMZ reports.

According to Ray’s manager, David Weintraub, the reality star will center his business marketing in the entertainment and music realm.

The cannabis business is catching the eye of many celebs in Hollywood.

Lil Pump will also test products and give creative and marketing input.
