The stigma of the “lazy stoner” is a thing of the past as former athletes and other professionals come out about their use. Whether it be for pain or another ailment, there is growing support around cannabis as the central piece of a general wellness routine.

Ricky Williams is all too familiar with the negative view of cannabis and for a long time has made his passion for the plant known.
With 2,127 rushing yards, 27 touchdowns, and 21 NCAA records in his award-winning season, Ricky contends that none of it would have happened without cannabis.
