Drake + Weed = GREAT FOR EVERYONE!!!
... So says Al Harrington, the former NBA player turned marijuana mogul who tells TMZ Sports a superstar like Drake is HUGE for the entire pot community.
As we previously reported, Drake is launching the More Life Growth Company ... hoping to cash in on the crop craze by selling everything from vapes to pipes, rolling papers, hookahs and more.
Harrington has been in the weed game for a while -- he created Viola Extracts Inc. after retiring from the NBA and it's been growing like crazy.
Now, with Drake entering the space ... we asked Al if he viewed Drake as a competitor or an ally.
"I hope he win, bro! I need him to win because then I'll win," Harrington said.
Harrington says Drake's foray into the ganja biz is "amazing ... a huge announcement for the industry."
Oh, and Al says if Drake wants to team up and collaborate on a product ... HIT HIM UP!!!
"Welcome, Drake! Let's get it, baby!"
