Legendary Longhorn Ricky Williams launches own marijuana brand

Former Texas Longhorn legendary running back Ricky Williams is launching his own brand of marijuana, according to Johnny Diaz of the South Florida Sun Sentinel.

The brand is called “Real Wellness,” and will sell a total of six products, including vape cartridges and tonics.

Williams has been an advocate of marijuana for some years now. His mental and physical rehabilitation featuring marijuana was documented in one of ESPN’s first 30 for 30’s,  Run Ricky Run.

Since his story has been told, he’s become an advocate for marijuana use, and was a featured speaker at a seminar titled “Pro Football, Pro Cannabis” about the benefits of marijuana.

Williams made national news in February for advertising a “cannabis-friendly” Super Bowl party at his home in California, where marijuana is decriminalized.

Williams won the Heisman Trophy for his efforts during the 1998 season at Texas and smashed multiple national rushing records along the way. When all the dust settled from his career, Williams had rushed for 6,592 yards and 75 touchdowns, with 29 touchdowns in his senior year. His number, No. 34, was retired by the Longhorns.
