Pro Football Hall of Fame offensive lineman Jonathan Ogden understands what unconditional love is all about.
Ogden has applied for a medical marijuana dispensary license in Nevada, according to the Las Vegas Review-Journal. Overall, 109 companies have filed for a license to legally sell pot. Ogden is part of a company called Global Harmony, one of the many businesses competing for a limited number of lucrative permits.
According to The Baltimore Sun, Ogden, who lives in Las Vegas, is only a 3.3 percent owner in Global Harmony.
However, he is pursuing the opportunity to sell medical marijuana because of his wife, Kema Francis.
"His wife had an idea to get involved in a business and Jonathan decided to support his wife and didn't see anything wrong with it," Rick Hyde, Ogden's Washington, D.C.-based lawyer, told The Baltimore Sun. "It's something she wanted to do and he tried to be a nice husband and support her. He himself doesn't have anything to do with the business other than allowing her to participate in a business that's she's pursuing. She wants to try her hand in her business. She owns a boxing gym and he supports that as well. He himself has a passing interest in that as well."
Well, it beats Ogden’s wife trying to make money by hosting candle parties.
Ogden is an 11-time Pro Bowl selection who retired following the 2007 NFL season. He was a first ballot Hall of Famer in 2013. In other words, he has nothing to lose by supporting his wife’s business venture.
If Ogden’s company does obtain a medical marijuana license, this year’s office Christmas party should be very interesting.
