Marijuana entrepreneur plans $100 million ‘marlboro of weed’ brand with irreverent ad

It looks like the kind of late night commercial meant for people taking bong rips between «Family Guy» reruns. To a Seattle weed entrepreneur, however, the two minute ad above is the first step toward building a $100 million marijuana empire.

Brian Laoruangroch, 29, is president of Prohibition Brands, a company that wants to mass produce marijuana cigarettes and cigars and sell them as a standardized product. The company is little more than an idea at the moment, but Laoruangroch is telling potential investors he envisions his brand as the marijuana version of a Marlboro cigarette.

In the commercial, Laoruangroch takes on the guise of a stereotypical cowboy to woo financiers. Aided by two skimpily clad female models and a puppet horse, he discusses the green rush of investment in marijuana.

I thought that the two most important things for an ad were to make something comical, number one, and number two, it s no secret that sex sells, Laoruangroch told The Huffington Post. So we found two really comical girls and a really sexy cowboy.

Laoruangroch said he owns intellectual property that covers the design specifications for a filtered marijuana cigarette. He said he hopes to turn that, along with a polished website and a personal pitch, into at least $5 million worth of investment before the end of the year.

Anyone who has met me or dealt with me in business would tell you that I m an absolute genius, Laoruangroch said, comparing himself to late Apple CEO Steve Jobs. I come from a background of having an idea and executing a physical product from an idea and that s what s relevant and needed in the marijuana market.

In paperwork filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission announcing his intent to solicit investors, Laoruangroch noted he has no current means to produce, distribute or sell marijuana cigarettes, and is not versed in similar markets like alcohol or tobacco. He also makes clear that investors would be putting their money in a company that intends to violate federal law prohibiting marijuana sale and possession. Those facts notwithstanding, Laoruangroch s business plan states that, with appropriate funding, products would be fully developed and ready to market by Dec. 1. The business would rely on first mover advantage and brand loyalty to succeed, according to the securities filing.

For us, it s really important to be number one, Laoruangroch said.

While there is a rush of investment into companies that deal with marijuana indirectly, such as smoking gadget manufacturers and gardening equipment suppliers, Laoruangroch s company is one of the few soliciting investors that expects to actually touch the plant. A Washington entrepreneur, Jamen Shively, made waves earlier this year when he announced he was raising funds to start a chain of recreational cannabis retailers.

Marijuana was legalized by voters in Washington state and Colorado last year. Regulators in those states will permit retail level sales of the drug from early next year. The plant remains illegal under federal law.

Prohibition Brands wouldn t be the first business Laoruangroch has worked on. While still a senior in college, the young entrepreneur founded Green Mobile, to help people recycle used cellphones. At first a website, the business soon turned into a booth at a mall, then a retail location, and then a chain of stores, Laoruangroch said.

Laoruangroch said that besides his experience, he has a penchant for risk taking and irreverence that he believes will translate into success in the budding marijuana industry. Laoruangroch has been arrested several times over the past decade on charges that include having a fake ID and possessing a small amount of marijuana. He was charged with grand theft auto last year, he said, after failing to return a rental vehicle on time.

That s really been my fearlessness, ever since I was a kid, that the police don t really scare me too much, Laoruangroch said, I bring that extraordinary view to the table.

And I want to say this to the federal government if they read this, when they read this, Laoruangroch said, «Mr. Obama, if you want to be a hypocrite and arrest me for selling marijuana, I ll come to the White House myself with the handcuffs already on. There s no need for guns.»

As for the commercial his company has produced, and a publicity stunt he said he has in the works where he ll attempt to roll a joint containing 2.2 pounds of marijuana, Laoruangroch said, I know that a lot of people don t want to hear that I m going to be advertising, but I m going to be doing it.

Best electronic cigarette

Simplest way to start with e cigs. Battery with cartridge, flavor cartridges, and USB charger.

You Are 5 Minutes Away From Vaping Like A Pro!

Would you be interested in having an extra $300 a month in your pocket? Keep reading and find out how I made that happen with E Cigs.

Hey what’s up? Roger here&#8230 thanks for stopping by! So you want to know about electronic cigarettes huh? You are ready to take the plunge?

You probably ended up here searching for the best electronic cigarette or e cig reviews and that is just what you will find. I don’t want to bore you with all sorts of «repeated industry info» so I have revamped the site to get you right to the info!

So first off&#8230

What Is The Best Electronic Cigarette?

  • My choice is clear! V2 Cigs << Click that to see why!

  • Check out our Electronic Cigarette Buying Guide Worth the read!

How Does An E Cig Work?

  • In a basic 2 piece model there is the battery «looks like end of reg cig you would light» and the cartridge «traditional butt». Inside the cartridge is a heating filament which gets power from the battery to heat up the nicotine liquid and turn it into vapor which you inhale. This all happens when you inhale. Pretty simple huh?

Most Affordable Way To Get Started?

  • With a starter kit of course. Get a kit with 2 batteries so you always have one charged

I save $335 a month with e cigs! What??

Why I Eventually Chose To Switch?

Listen I will be honest and most people know this, but traditional cigarettes are so bad for your health. I mean just look at what the National Cancer Institute has to say.

Not only are they bad for you, they now cost way too much money. Check out this smoking calculator and see how much you have spent on cigs over the years. Holy $$#!&#8230

I loved my cigarettes who didn’t. Take a smoke break, on the drive to work, after a meal. It was the best. I never really tried to quit, but knew I should eventually. That is when I started seeing people vaping with e cigs.

I tried a buddy of mines, I think it was a blu cig, but I really don’t remember. What I do remember is it satisfied my craving so I decided to look more into it.

I did the math&#8230 as a 1 2 pack smoker a day at about $8 a pack depending on what sales/specials etc&#8230 I was spending almost $400 a month on cigs!! My car payment is only $169&#8230 I could literally be driving a Mercedes or BMW if I gave up smoking!!

But, like I said I was not ready to give up smoking and when I looked at the cost of e cigs&#8230 I was amazed at how much money I could save. I will use V2 Cigs as an example since they are my favorite brand. A V2 Ultimate Kit will set you back about $169 depending on if there is a sale or you use one of our e cig coupon codes&#8230 This gets you all you need and then some. 3 batteries and 25 cartridges. So 25 cartridges equals about 25 packs of regular cigs so for most people this can last a month.

So for me now I typically will buy a 40 pack of cartridges for about $65 which gets me through the month. Did you just hear what I said??? $65 a month now versus $400, that is a $335 I am saving. It has been nice to actually put some money into my savings account! What would you do with an extra $300 a month??

      Yeah e cigs are great. As for disposables I have a few reviews on the site, but I do not have the logic disposable up yet. That was honestly a pretty solid disposable and way better then the blu or njoy I reviewed here. Ill try to get them up next week. You can grab them at pretty much any gas station so give it a shot.

    I’m currently using Logic brand e cigs and like them but I was looking for something better and happened to see this review and you convinced me to try out the V2 (Menthol) kit like the one in your video review.

    Great review and thanks in advance for the help Roger!
