Al Harrington went from being the best player in high school to an 18-year old 1st round pick in the 1998 NBA draft to a 16-year NBA veteran to a Cannabis Entrepreneur.
In the latest documentary short from Uninterrupted, Harrington discusses why he started using it and how he got into the business of marijuana, which he claims over 70% of people (players, coaches and owners) in sports use.
He also links up with former NBA commissioner David Stern, who believes the league should remove it from the NBA’s ban substance list, to discuss it’s medical purposes in the league.
“I’m now at the point where, personally, I think it probably should be removed from the ban list. I think we have to change the Collective Bargaining Agreement and let you do what is legal in your state.
“If marijuana is now in the process of being legalized, I think you should be allowed to do what’s legal in your state.”
Harrington also paid Desus & Mero a visit to talk cannabis and winning a championship in Ice Cube’s Big3 league this year.
