(Newser) – Wonder what it's like to be as high—on life and on couch cushions—as Tom Cruise? Head west, where licensed California medical-marijuana dealers are hawking a bud called "Tom Cruise Purple." The vials reportedly feature the actor's maniacally laughing mug—and aficionados  say it'll have you hallucinating in no time, the New York Daily News reports.

Predictably, the actor's camp has called the stunt "outrageous." Per Scientology guidelines, the 45-year-old Cruise opposes the use of psychotropic drugs and has dispatched his minions to put the kibosh on his wacky-weed namesake.
