Steve Urkel DID do that after all… he started a weed company.

Jaleel White, the 44 year actor behind the iconic Family Matters character, is opening his own marijuana company. He also has a name perfect for this new endeavor.

Purple Urkel is coming thanks to a partnership with 710 Labs. Of course, 710 is a famous stoner number as well, because it spells “OIL” when you flip it upside down.

The new Purple Urkel strain is set to launch on April 20th, 2021 and will be available at dispensaries in California. That is, of course, the perfect day to release a new strain of weed because 4:20 is fondly known as Stoner Christmas in some circles.


This new celebrity strain of marijuana is sure to get plenty of attention on the shelves. You might find yourself doing The Urkel in no time. Check the video below for a blast from the past if you don’t get that last reference.

H Jenkins

Years of experience in writing, journalism, and digging exclusive insider info for Ringside News opened the door for a new opportunity for Jenkins. With a history in finance, he broke into the journalism game by writing on blogs and other freelance websites before branching into sports and entertainment news. Being in tune with pop culture doesn't mean it has to make sense, but he tries. Favorite bands include any group from Seattle who formed between 1991 and 1999. 5 Ozzfests under his belt and 12 Warped Tours, but his last concert was a bluegrass AC/DC cover band that was not 100% terrible.
