Lamar Odom nearly lost his life when he overdosed on narcotics at a Nevada brothel in 2015. Since then, the former NBA star checked himself into a rehabilitation facility for addiction issues and swore to live a clean life following his brush with death. Though he’s now sober after completing a treatment program last year, it appears the 38-year-old still wrapped up in the world of drugs.
According to a new report, Lamar is currently wrapped up in that sweet lady Mary Jane.
Lamar Odom may be sober, but he still has drugs on the brain.
Two years after nearly losing his life when he overdosed on narcotics at a Nevada brothel, the former NBA star is heading into the blossoming cannabis business. According to The Blast, Khloé Kardashian‘s ex-husband is investing in a new venture called Rich Soil Organics, which offers products that he claims helped him while he was recovering from substance abuse issues with crack cocaine.
“While going through rehab, I discovered certain strains that support wellness,” he tells the publication.
“Friends, associates, and ex-teammates asked me what solutions I was using on my road back to recovery, and that’s when Rich Soil Organics was born,” the Khloé & Lamar alum explains.
As fans know, the 38-year-old entered into a rehabilitation center for addiction issues in late 2016 — a year after his near-fatal overdose and subsequent four-day coma — following intense physical therapy. He checked out in January 2017 after completing a month-long stint at a Los Angeles facility.
Given the sale of recreational marijuana is now legal in the state of California, Lamar tells the outlet, “It’s a perfect time to offer these Cannabis solutions to the public who may be going through similar body issues as I am.”
While little is known about Lamar’s foray into the weed world, including his exact involvement to the company, Rich Soil Organics boasts they will cultivate “organically grown, pesticide-free cannabis.”
The brand will reportedly roll out other products such as flowers, concentrates, extracts, and other CBD/THC infusions.
Lamar expects the line to launch later this year in California.
