Today the Bleacher Report dropped a new video that shows former superstar athletes endorsing cannabis in honor of the upcoming 4/20 Weekend. Names like Al Harrington, Kenyon Martin, Ricky Williams, Gary Payton, Eben Britton, Ryan Clady (pictured above) and more all drop the “I support cannabis in sports” line as some take big rips of joints to prove it. As cannabis starts to shake its stigma and move toward federal legalization, more and more athletes are coming out in support of this magical plant as something that helps them ease pain and for some even improve performance.
Athletes like Colorado’s Avery Collins use cannabis to help with extreme endurance sports like ultramarathoning, which is not something you would have seen in sports culture even ten years ago. Check out the video below.
