The owner of the Chicago Blackhawks has entered into the weed business.

Rocky Wirtz, the owner of the Chicago Blackhawks, is a smart businessman. He brought the team from laughing stock to champion.

The Wirtz family is also involved with other businesses.

In fact, they have recently added a new one.

According to,

"Breakthru Beverage, the alcohol distribution group led in part by Blackhawks owner and chairman Rocky Wirtz, has invested over $9 million in a leading Canadian pot producer."

That's right, Rocky has put his money into marijuana.

When cannabis becomes legal next month in Canada, Breakthru Beverage will be distributing products across the Great White North.
