Tyler Dooley, who claims to be a “pioneer” in the cannabis industry, helps grow millions of dollars worth of marijuana in Grant’s Pass, Oregon with his business partners. By the way, he also happens to be the nephew of Princess Meghan Markle.
His story resembles that of many Northwest farmers, with one big difference: He’s the nephew of newly-married Princess Meghan Markle. And he’s even created a proprietary strain in honor of the Royal Union, called Markle’s Sparkle.
Dooley started smoking pot in high school, but despite being a player in the industry, no longer smokes. Tyler, who lives in Grant’s Pass, Oregon, has said he’d be “more than happy” to offer Meghan and Prince Harry a sample of his new concoction.
Tyler last spoke to Meghan three years ago but recalls her babysitting him and his brother, TJ, regularly when they were children, told the website: “Meghan grew up in California and I am sure has an American view on pot.”
“I know in England that marijuana is still a taboo subject but it’s more normal to us here because we grew up around it in high school. Everybody experiments with it here.”
Cannabis appreciation appears to be a family affair for the Markles, as Dooley’s mom and dog have also joined in on the marijuana action. They started medicating the family’s three-legged dog after the wolf/Dutch Shepherd cross lost a leg to bone cancer.
