It isn’t just big-wig lawyers, doctors, and politicians who are seeking a piece of the lucrative medical marijuana dispensary industry emerging here in southern Nevada. Among other big names to cash in on this hot Vegas medical marijuana trend: Jonathan Ogden, former NFL offensive tackle for the Baltimore Ravens.
Ogden may be better known as the respected Pro-Football Hall of Famer, or as the first ever player to spend the entirety of his career as a Raven, but he may soon be known for more. This popular NFL player applied for a medical marijuana dispensary license in Nevada, after his wife suggested they look into the deal.
Ogden’s lawyer, Rick Hyde, told the Baltimore Sun that Ogden “tried to be a nice husband” and support his wife’s idea to invest in a Las Vegas dispensary. Who knows? There may soon be other NFL players who decide to lovingly support their wives in such endeavors.
Seeing as how there are a limited number of available licenses in Nevada for medical marijuana businesses available (around 40), whether or not Ogden’s proposal will be accepted as one of the lucky few is yet unknown. What is known is that so far, over 100 individuals or companies have filed for a Las Vegas dispensary license in Clark County.
