Matt Barnes & Al Harrington: NBA Weed Leaders

Jan 19, 2020 | Length: 0h 43m

The National Basketball Association is the professional sports league most identified with cannabis, so there’s little surprise that the NBA has generated two of sport’s most prominent activists-entrepreneurs, Al Harrington and Matt Barnes. Late last year Harrington opened the Detroit dispensary Viola — named after his grandmother — and joined Donny and Alex for wide-ranging conversation in Las Vegas. World Champion Matt Barnes has partnerships with Seven Leaves, Eaze and his own Swish brand. In successive interviews, Barnes and Harrington speak out on pro hoops’ pot rules and habits, how to reach the pot prejudiced, and the prospect ofgenerational wealth for historically-persecuted communities. Plus, Alex discusses how investors made nearly $1 Billion shorting pot stocks. Viola Brand violabrands.comShowtime’s All the Smoke (with Stephen A. Smith)www.youtube.com/watch?v=VD2fBQK-LYsSeven
