Lamar Odom

Buys Popular Ingredient for

Homemade Crack Pipes

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

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 ...

CHORE BOY is the most incriminating thing you can buy if you have a crack habit. If anyone is buying just chore boy, or chore boy and a couple other small items, i GUARANTEE it is being used for crack. I doubted the reports until i saw the chore boy. Any convenient store cashier will tell you, chore boy is a GUARANTEED crackhead item.

Okay, the guy's a multi-millionaire and his wife is a multi-millionaire, but maybe he still enjoys scrubbing his toilet with Chore Boy scrubbers. No? Um, well...

Reports of his drug use are all over the internet. We all assume by now that he buys drugs and the accompanying paraphernalia. There's no need to keep us posted whenever he makes a purchase.

I feel like why are we worrying about this, he is a grown man, with money its his life, i like lamar, but the media is riding his jock a little bit to hard, you couldnt really be a crackhead if you got a nice home in beverly hills also miami also still got his clothing company, we should pray for lamar, and stop throwing stones at the glass house, i betcha a million that lawyer was smoking too
