The strain, which has 22.753% THC, will debut from noon-2 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 29, at New Center Hazel Park (24906 John R Rd., Hazel Park; anewstandard.com). Shaggy and the Creep will be on-site.
New Standard is also hosting a cannabis consumption event dubbed Halloweed from 3-11 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 30 at its Muskegon location (1922 Park St., Muskegon).
In other Juggalo news, a documentary about ICP's "Million Juggalo March" on Washington, D.C., to protest the FBI designating their fans as a "hybrid gang," will premiere next week.

The film is set to screen in theaters nationwide on Tuesday, Oct. 26, including Emagine Royal Oak, the Emagine Palladium in Birmingham, and AMC John R 15 in Madison Heights. More information, including all participating theaters, is available at Fathom Events.
"Our goal is to put the audience through our own paces of discovery during the seven years we filmed with ICP, their fans, their lawyers, and the government agencies pursuing them," Putnam said in a statement. "ICP's extensive archive of music videos, home movies, documentaries, and feature films are layered throughout our movie as well, helping us paint a unique story of two high school dropouts achieved their own American dream while bringing people along for the ride during the seven years we’ve been filming ICP and their fans as they fight for their lives against the FBI."
