Francis Ford Coppola Wants to Sell You Weed in a Wine Bottle

Who said septuagenarians weren't chill?

It took nearly 30 years, but The Godfather III is now watchable, people. 

How so? With an assist from Francis Ford Coppola’s own “Growers Series,” a new cannabis line with three unique strands — indica, sativa and hybrid — grown across various farms and ranches in California wine country.

The legendary director has helmed a prosperous Napa winery for years, but this is his first foray into cannabis terroir. He’s in good hands, though, launching Growers in cahoots with Chill, a cannabis delivery system servicing Northern California. And he’s growing each strain with the help of the Humboldt Brothers, the “Farm to Flower” siblings pioneering the state’s sungrown, pesticide-free weed supply.

As part of the series’ gimmick, the buds come in wine bottles, which we find a tad hokey. But interested customers can also expect a glass pipe, a matchbox and rolling papers from their set — all nice touches.
