Kevin Durant Inks Deal With Weedmaps To Change The Conversation Around Cannabis For Athletes

Kevin Durant is one of the latest public figures to lend a helping hand to the cannabis space. However, instead of cashing in like other celebrities, he’s more focused on a plan to destigmatize the industry.
