It looks like the kind of late night commercial meant for people taking bong rips between “Family Guy” reruns. To a Seattle weed entrepreneur, however, the two minute ad above is the first step toward building a $100 million marijuana empire.

Brian Laoruangroch, 29, is president of Prohibition Brands, a company that wants to mass produce marijuana cigarettes and cigars and sell them as a standardized product. The company is little more than an idea at the moment, but Laoruangroch is telling potential investors he envisions his brand as the marijuana version of a Marlboro cigarette.

In the commercial, Laoruangroch takes on the guise of a stereotypical cowboy to woo financiers. Aided by two skimpily clad female models and a puppet horse, he discusses the green rush of investment in marijuana.

I thought that the two most important things for an ad were to make something comical, number one, and number two, it s no secret that sex sells, Laoruangroch told The Huffington Post. So we found two really comical girls and a really sexy cowboy.

Laoruangroch said he owns intellectual property that covers the design specifications for a filtered marijuana cigarette. He said he hopes to turn that, along with a polished website and a personal pitch, into at least $5 million worth of investment before the end of the year.

Anyone who has met me or dealt with me in business would tell you that I m an absolute genius, Laoruangroch said, comparing himself to late Apple CEO Steve Jobs. I come from a background of having an idea and executing a physical product from an idea and that s what s relevant and needed in the marijuana market.

In paperwork filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission announcing his intent to solicit investors, Laoruangroch noted he has no current means to produce, distribute or sell marijuana cigarettes, and is not versed in similar markets like alcohol or tobacco. He also makes clear that investors would be putting their money in a company that intends to violate federal law prohibiting marijuana sale and possession. Those facts notwithstanding, Laoruangroch s business plan states that, with appropriate funding, products would be fully developed and ready to market by Dec. 1. The business would rely on first mover advantage and brand loyalty to succeed, according to the securities filing.

For us, it s really important to be number one, Laoruangroch said.

While there is a rush of investment into companies that deal with marijuana indirectly, such as smoking gadget manufacturers and gardening equipment suppliers, Laoruangroch s company is one of the few soliciting investors that expects to actually touch the plant. A Washington entrepreneur, Jamen Shively, made waves earlier this year when he announced he was raising funds to start a chain of recreational cannabis retailers.

Marijuana was legalized by voters in Washington state and Colorado last year. Regulators in those states will permit retail level sales of the drug from early next year. The plant remains illegal under federal law.

Prohibition Brands wouldn t be the first business Laoruangroch has worked on. While still a senior in college, the young entrepreneur founded Green Mobile, to help people recycle used cellphones. At first a website, the business soon turned into a booth at a mall, then a retail location, and then a chain of stores, Laoruangroch said.

Laoruangroch said that besides his experience, he has a penchant for risk taking and irreverence that he believes will translate into success in the budding marijuana industry. Laoruangroch has been arrested several times over the past decade on charges that include having a fake ID and possessing a small amount of marijuana. He was charged with grand theft auto last year, he said, after failing to return a rental vehicle on time.

That s really been my fearlessness, ever since I was a kid, that the police don t really scare me too much, Laoruangroch said, I bring that extraordinary view to the table.

And I want to say this to the federal government if they read this, when they read this, Laoruangroch said, “Mr. Obama, if you want to be a hypocrite and arrest me for selling marijuana, I ll come to the White House myself with the handcuffs already on. There s no need for guns.”

As for the commercial his company has produced, and a publicity stunt he said he has in the works where he ll attempt to roll a joint containing 2.2 pounds of marijuana, Laoruangroch said, I know that a lot of people don t want to hear that I m going to be advertising, but I m going to be doing it.

Bull smoke review

Direct tobacco

I’m NOT a smoker, but my fiancee is. Like me, he likes to buy the best products and save money. He has recently started smoking electronic cigarettes, and the brand he’s decided to use is Bull Smoke. Bull Smoke electronic cigarettes are the best bang for the buck on the e cig market.

Check ’em out! Use Promo Code “Prancercise” and save even more&#8230 .

Compare the price of the starter kit of $29.00 to many other brands charging $59, $89, $149.

You get the same great experience (I’ve seen him use many brands) for a low price. Plus, as he says, it’s “manly.” He’s a man’s man, so I trust he knows what he’s talking about. You probably know the type. All he talks about is bench pressing, football, and drinking beer and whiskey.

Anyways, always uncovering deals is my game, and he took the opportunity to tell me about Bull Smoke. So here is his short review below this video promotion Bull Smoke did with the famous Prancercise Lady.

My fiance actually took time away from the TV to write this review. What a swell guy! (Although I took the photo)

This is what Bull Smoke looks like when it’s unboxed.

Bull Smoke is quite possibly the most famous electronic cigarette brand in terms of marketing and branding. It caught me immediately and grabbed my attention. It has earned itself the positive reputation due to its high quality ecig and excellent flavors. If you are looking for a great brand to enter the electronic cigarette industry, you should definitely short list Bull Smoke and try them out. I use Bull Smoke and would have no problem recommending them to others.

Here are the most notable features of the brand


Bull Smoke exhibits a tough guy look as opposed to elegant and futuristic approach with their ecigs. This is a great pace of change from many typical ecigs out there that just try to replicate the actual cigarette. Bull Smoke s ecig are rugged and look tough.

Vapor Production

Many brands claim their flavors are great but only few are able to deliver what they claim. Bull Smoke is proudly one of those brands that actually deliver what they claim. No shortage of vapor with their 4.2 volt batteries.

Battery life

Bull Smoke uses very typical batteries that are commonly known as mini ecigs. But it also allows the users to select extended and manual batteries for harder and better vapor should they desire. One of the best bits about the brand is their battery s extended charge life. With Bull Smoke, you can easily get about 300 450 puffs before the battery runs out of juice.

Starter Kits

As with many other brands out there, Bull Smoke offers different starter kits to suit your budget. The basic starter kit includes everything you need to get started. Should you require an extra battery or couple of extra accessories, a starter kit is available to give you exactly what you need. Moreover, users have the liberty of selecting the different kinds of batteries available and the different modes of the battery before they purchase their starter kit. Furthermore, you can also choose from two flavors and 5 nicotine strengths. Unlike other brands, Bull Smoke offers 24mg of nicotine for hardcore smokers who want more out of their ecigs.

What I like the most about Bull Smoke?

PRICE. This is the most affordable brand out there. Best ‘bang for the buck,’ if you will. At $29 you won’t get a better starter kit. You won’t find many cartridge refills selling for cheaper either.


Bull Smoke is what I use. Some of my friends are just getting into it to. Cigarettes are a thing of my past, but I’ll gladly use a Bull Smoke vapor cigarette when I feel like getting some nicotine and enjoying a smoke.
