This Mobile Game Gives You A Shot At Being A Cannabis Tycoon

Ever wonder what it would be like to work in the cannabis industry? Now you can take a crack at the marijuana biz with the mobile game Hemp Inc.

Developed by HKA Digital Studios, "Hemp Inc." let's you put your entrepreneurial skills to the test by growing cannabis strains, hiring bud tenders, franchising and doing everything else involved in becoming a cannabis tycoon.

One of the game's coolest features is the interaction with cannabis celebrities - past and present, real and fictional - who can help you expand your business. Characters include marijuana icons like Jimi Hendrix, Snoop Dogg, Cheech and Chong, Willie Nelson, Wiz Khalifa and more.

There's also some cannabis kitsch built into the interface, including reggae music playing in the grow op and the distinctive warbling of a water pipe.

Check out this tutorial for a glimpse at the game, which is available through iTunes. Do you have what it takes to turn a pot shop into a cannabis empire?
