You’ll likewise have the capacity to purchase a Power Plant-marked line of edibles at the rec center, he says.

McAlpine likewise says that he’s seen enough episodic evidence in his work as a wellness expert to trust that weed can “help you get into the zone, into the eye-of-the-tiger mode.” That’s somewhat why he joined forces with previous football player Ricky Williams for the first round of seed cash.
