A cannabis company that hooked up with Julian Marley, son of the late legendary reggae musician Bob Marley, is being sued by one of its co-owners for breach of contract.

Colorado-based Dropleaf, which offers a line of marijuana products called JuJu Royal, failed to pay back a $74,000 loan to the Hackney Family Trust, according to a press release.

The trust has an ownership stake in Dropleaf and loaned the company money to help it launch JuJu Royal.

The suit claims that Dropleaf was supposed to repay the principal plus interest and other costs by this past January, but it has not done so yet.

Julian Marley helped develop the JuJu Royal line of products and serves as the face of the brand.

JuJu Royal debuted in Washington State in 2014 and has since expanded to California and Colorado. The brand specializes in specific strains of flower, concentrates and edibles.

It is not associated with Marley Natural, which is owned by Privateer Holdings.
