Thrive Capital Management, an investment company whose founder has ties to the Trump administration, is set to invest in the marijuana industry for the first time, leading a $35 million funding round for online cannabis inventory and ordering platform LeafLink.

New York-based Thrive was founded in 2009 by Josh Kushner, whose brother, Jared Kushner, is a White House adviser and son-in-law of President Donald Trump.

According to Bloomberg, LeafLink has now raised $51 million through this new funding to expand LeafLink Financial, which offers payment services to the cannabis industry.

LeafLink has offices in Los Angeles and New York.
