Lamar Odom

Buys Popular Ingredient for

Homemade Crack Pipes

9/11/2013 7:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0910-lamar-odom-akmOminous sign for Lamar Odom's battle with drug addiction -- he scooped up a household cleaning product that doubles as a vital part of homemade crack pipes ... and TMZ has the photos.

Lamar and his driver walked out of a San Fernando Valley pharmacy on Tuesday with a bag full of items ... most notably ... Chore Boy copper scrubbing pads.

0910-lamar-chore-akmHow commonly are the pads used for drug abuse? Type it into Google ... and "crack" is the first auto-fill topic besides the product name. Also, Forbes magazine wrote an article about its use as a filter in makeshift crack pipes.

Oh, and Urban Dictionary defines it like this: "Brand name of scouring pad used also by people smoking crack to retain some of the cocaine vapors."

According to the photo agency that snapped the pics ... Lamar made the conspicuous purchase shortly after meeting Khloe Kardashian's assistant to pick up some clothes. We're told the pharmacy is near the house where he used to live with Khloe.

As TMZ first told you, multiple people in Lamar's life -- like his estranged wife -- are saying he desperately needs to get in to rehab for many addictions, especially crack.

So, it's possible the NBA star had some kitchen cleaning to do, but we gotta ask ...

You want to know the real reason Harvey is still riding his Lamar Pony ???? look at the site....the average comment on all the other stupid stories about people you never heard of or want to hear off is ...54 .... 54 compared to 359 or so comments on this one.....the only one coming close is his continual harping on George Zimmeman and that's about 200 and most all are the race baiters who like to start the race name calling again....
He gets paid twice for each story .....One by the Kartrashions and once by Us with our comments....think I am going to stop feeding the kitty called TMZ and let him starve then maybe he gets hungry enough he will start doing real star gossip and not gut trash news......

I am a recovering drug addict so I feel like I kinda know a little bit about this stuff, absolutely I think he has a crack problem, and someone said you can't use the copper ones for crack umm yea you can ive done if, crack is a terrible drug so him being out & about makes me think he's also using some sort of downer such as Xanax or even Dope, otherwise he'd be like locked in a closet right now thinking the cops are after him, the man needs to go to a rehab & not a cushy spa one a real rehab & go to meetings, a 12 step program is the only way. He's sick & suffering, it's sad, addiction doesn't care how rich you are, it will steal his soul.

LOL I seriously doubt that he would be out purchasing crack supplies knowing that Paps are following him to prove he is on crack. Cmon now! I have a feeling he may just be clowning for the paps.

you know what, big freaking deal he likes to get high, what about Lance Armstrong and all the baseball players lying about steroids for YEARS, what about the real crimes that the Kardashians are involved in, as in sweat shops, stealing intellectual property, corrupt visa cards, the list goes on and on...drug addiction is a victimless crime the addict is the only one who really suffers to make this man's life a living hell by stalking him, WELL RIDDLE ME THIS WHO WOULD WANT TO BE SOBER GOING THROUGH THIS WITH THAT HORRIFIC EVIL FAMILY STALKING HIM NIGHT AND DAY???? NOT TO MENTION YOUR RELENTLESS WAR ON HIM...trust me you have a defamation lawsuit the W h o r e trashians have a HUGE defamation lawsuit, and I hope Lamar spills all about this demonic family. SHAME ON YOU HARVEY AND SHAME ON KMZ for stalking this man...if he dies his blood is on you and the W h o r e trashians.

Well now, he has enough money for his 800 dollar a day habit, according to TMZ, but he has to make his own crackpipe, have I got that right? I'm thinking if KMZ was telling the truth, Lamar would be so out of it after doing his crack there is no way he can make anything. I'll bet a crackhead with an 800 dollar a day habit can't butter a slice of bread. DUMBAZZEZ.
