Late last year I bumped into former NBA player Cliff Robinson at the airport in Portland, Oregon. Jay and I were on our way to Vegas to attend the Marijuana Business Conference there, and Cliff Robinson was on our flight. Jay actually talked to Cliff for a little bit prior to boarding. While we were taking off, Jay and I joked about how cool it would be if Cliff was going to the conference at The Rio. Cliff is a legend to all Portland Trailblazer fans, which is a very big chunk of the State of Oregon from what I can tell.
Little did we know at the time that Cliff was indeed flying to Vegas to attend the event, and was at that time in the process of finalizing the details on an announcement that went viral very fast. That announcement was for ‘Uncle Spliffy‘ Cliff’s new brand. Uncle Spliffy is a ‘sports cannabis brand’ that is about more than just selling products, but also about changing minds. Medical marijuana can do some amazing things for those that suffer from injuries, and injuries are very common in sports.
Most doctors prescribe harmful painkillers to athletes in order to help them alleviate their suffering, which is a temporary fix at best, or the start down a path towards harmful addiction at worst. Either way, the painkillers are often not as effective as a treatment regimen that involves medical cannabis. Cannabis can help those that are suffering from injuries, as well as help people get off of painkillers and battle their addiction. Addiction is something that many, many athletes face, and medical marijuana can help, which is a principle that is at the very core of the Uncle Spliffy brand.
