The Game has found himself in hot water after being named as a defendant in a class action lawsuit filed against the cannabis cryptocurrency company Paragon.

Paragon has marketed themselves as a "path towards legalization of cannabis and a way to solve nearly every issue facing the cannabis industry." Their claim was that they would use blockchain technology as a means of tracking the various stages of cannabis production and sale. This statement now appears to be false and the company faces a class action lawsuit for misleading investors.

And Compton hip hop artist the Game has been named as one of the defendants in the suit. This is because he had been acting as the celebrity face of the company and is listed as a member of Paragon's "advisory board", reports The Blast.
