Who says marijuana makes you lazy? Former pro footballer Ricky Williams and Jim McAlpine, an advocate for athlete marijuana use, are working to open the first pro-weed gym. The men behind Power Plant Fitness claim using the drug while working out can help people either focus or relax.
Williams, who played for the Saints, Dolphins and Ravens, explains he uses to focus. “It’s not about getting high,” he says. “It’s about keeping my mind engaged in the activity I’m in.” McAlpine, whose also an executive at a snowboard company, adds he wants to stop the stigma against pot use.
Power Plant Fitness will offer edible marijuana products and topical gel for those that don’t want to smoke the drug. They hope to be open by the end of the year.
