Chuck Norris -- I Didn't Green Light the Weed!

1/9/2011 8:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Chuck Norris just got smoked -- by a bunch of people who purchased a brand new strain of weed offered in L.A. pot shops that's named after the icon. Just one problem -- Chuck never signed off on it.

TMZ has learned ... the strain is being sold under the name, “Chuck Norris’ Black and Blue Dream" -- apparently because it has a "real kick to it" .... ha.

A rep for Chuck assures us, "This is definitely not an authorized use of his name" -- but it's unclear if Norris will spring into action to do anything about it.

Besides, Chuck Norris doesn't get high ... he makes everyone else low.

I got some Obama weed. It was free and doesn't get you high. It works by stealing the high off other people who earned the money to buy their weed.

maybe they could change the name to "ginger with a horror facelift" ... interchangeable with "chuck norris", surely?

Um, they don't need his permission. I smoke Elvis quite frequently.

Yes, they do. You can't use a celebrity's name or likeness without their permission. It doesn't matter if it's for medicinal marijuana - a noble cause, in my opinion - or any other product.

Their name and image is their livelihood, so they have the right to control who uses it. Would you want a company to use your real name to sell a brand of feminine hygeine products, Herpes medication, or small-sized condoms?
(On a side note, "Gloria Allred's Miniature Condoms" would be a fitting union of a celebrity and a product, and I think she'd actually approve it! Although, her face on the box would defeat the purpose, since it would immediately cause erectile dysfunction...)

Odds are that your "Elvis" was used without permission, or his estate doesn't know or care that it's being used.

Chuck Norris is going to crack #6 like a nut. Everyone knows you NEVER forget to capitalize Chuck Norris' name. You will end up as small and bent as the letters you write.

You can't find Chuck Norris in the dictionary, he finds you.

If you spell Chuck Norris in Scrabble you will win forever.

A nation under Chuck Norris' rule is known as a Chucktatorship.

This dude is never in the news and this is the best publicity he can get. He is also a Republican't, which doesn't help the matters. I love a good douche, but only in my hatchet wound, not in my news. Oh, btw, please become friends with me on FB. kimberlybubblesboots at yahoo. Mazal tov and LYLAS.

some very valid points...but in show business, or any business for that matter, any publicity, positive or negative is considered good publicity.

Details?    

Blue weed? Really? It is not a sweater. No need to put colored dye in weed to make it look good. Smoking pot is harsh enough on the lungs.....No fake additives please!
