Urkel is coming out with his own line of weed. Former Family Matters star Jaleel White is collaborating with cannabis brand 710 Labs to create a line of purple cultivars with names inspired by his iconic role. The new collection, dubbed “Its PurpL,” features strains of purple bud with names that play on television’s favorite nerd, or his suave alter ego Stefan Urquelle. They’ll have Purple Urkel, a previously developed strain later attributed to the beloved character, and a crossbred variety known as Stefan, which combines Purple Urkel and a lighter-hued strain called the White. The klutzy character is rumored to have inspired Purple Urkel long after the show aired, named as such due to its reputation for turning users into Urkel-esque characters. The Its PurpL logo features the young mug of White as Steve Urkel, with his signature Coke-bottle spectacles and high-top fade haircut that blends into a purple haze riding above the floating head. White is a longtime smoke. He said he had been sought out for collaborations in the past following the passing of Proposition 64 in California, but none felt right until now. Its PurpL is due to drop on April 20 — a k a 4/20 — on the web-based pot platform Next Level.
