In a photo recently published by star magazine, you can see Los Angeles Lakers player Lamar Odom smoking weed, according to reports. Get the rest of the scoop here.
Following in the controversial footsteps of Michael Phelps, the basketball star was reportedly caught burning down a spliff at a party. According to Star, sources who had attended the party said that they could smell the potent aroma and “it was definitely marijuana.”
Known for his generosity, Odom wasn’t stingy with his green either, and passed it around to his friends. This leads me to believe that there may be some truth to the slogan “It’s not a health issue, it’s a wealth issue.”
Star also goes on to report that Lamar was flirting with a female other than Khloe Kardashian.
Regardless of the publications claims, there is no hard evidence to back either of the allegations. So at this point in time, these claims are all just hearsay. I wonder, what ever happened to the American creed “innocent until proven guilty”? It seems that nowadays everyone just wants to point fingers and judge. Even if it does turn out that Odom was cruising on crazy clouds that day, did he do anything that hurt anybody? The answer is no. So why should he be demonized for something that has been used by humans dating back 5000 years?
Don’t get me wrong. I’m not condoning the use of marijuana in anyway. I’m just saying shouldn’t people be casting their stones at murderers and rapists? Just because the man is a stoner doesn’t make it right for him to be stoned.
Here’s my prediction for how this will play out. Lamar will publicly admit that he was indeed high, and then he will apologize and perhaps pay a fine. A week or two will pass, and no one will remember the incident ever happened.
