Former NBA champion Lamar Odom is promoting a new venture. The 38-year-old is starting a business for marijuana-based products, a growing market in states where pot is legal.
Odom, who last summer opened up about his cocaine addiction that nearly cost him his life, said in a press release Thursday that he found marijuana to be helpful in his recovery from hard drugs.
“While going through rehab, I discovered certain strains (of marijuana) that support wellness,” Odom said in the release. “So I decided to team up with Camp Green, a company that supplies organically grown, pesticide-free cannabis.”
Odom’s business, Rich Soil Organics, will open later this year in California and provide products Odom believes can help others. Marijuana is legal in California, and it became the country’s largest state to offer legal marijuana sales at the beginning of 2018.
