(Legacy) The NBA’s First Marijuana Mogul – Al Harrington – Founder and CEO of Viola Extracts

This week on a very special episode of the Green Rush, Lewis and Anne are joined by the literally the biggest name in cannabis,  NBA legend- and cannabis CEO, Al Harrington. Not a user during his playing career and finding inspiration from his grandmother Viola, Al discovered the benefits of CBDs upon retirement, turning to medical cannabis for pain relief and inflammation issues. Recognizing the business opportunity that medical cannabis presented, Al dove headfirst into becoming one of the most public cannabis entrepreneurs in the industry. During their conversation, the Green Rush team and Al discuss how his work ethic in basketball prepared him to become a successful entrepreneur, how he was able to change former NBA commissioner David Stern’s mind on the medical benefits of cannabis and the hypocrisy of alcohol endorsements and sponsorships versus cannabis.
