Kevin Durant announced a partnership and sponsorship deal with cannabis marketplace Weedmaps.

Durant has been an advocate for the benefits of marijuana in the past and has invested in cannabis-related businesses.

“I think it’s far past time to address the stigmas around cannabis that still exist in the sports world as well as globally,” Durant told ESPN. “This partnership is going to help us continue to normalize those conversations, as well as create content, events, and a lot more through our Boardroom media network. This is just the beginning for us.”

Weedmaps doesn’t directly sell marijuana but is an e-commerce platform that guides users to dispensaries.

The last NBA player to be suspended for using marijuana was Thabo Sefolosha in 2018.
