Ex-NBA Player Clifford Robinson Creating Marijuana Business

Former NBA All-Star and Blazers great Clifford Robinson will appear at the Cannabis Collaborative Conference in early February amid the start of his new marijuana business in Oregon, according to the Portland Business Journal’s Andy Giegerich.

The venture, titled “Uncle Spliffy," is a tribute to his nickname “Uncle Cliffy.”

“It’s an opportunity for me to get out there and tell people a little bit about myself outside of basketball,” Robinson said, per Giegerich. “People in Oregon know me as a basketball player, but I want to distill the stigma around cannabis, the misperception that athletes and cannabis are incompatible.”

Robinson also told Giegerich he believes marijuana can serve as a natural painkilling substitute for athletes compared to the drugs they’re prescribed.

“Cannabis is definitely a more positive alternative to pharmaceuticals at the end of the day,” Robinson said. “Those are synthetics. I’m talking about something that’s natural that can bring the outcomes you’re looking for, be it for muscle tension or relaxation or preparedness.”

Robinson was routinely suspended for weed during his days in the NBA.
