Former NBA Player, Clifford Robinson, Now Wants To Be Known As ‘Uncle Spliffy’

Former Blazer, and current blazer...

….Clifford Robinson is back in Portland but he’s now going by the name of Uncle Spliffy- because he loves weed and wants team doctors to consider treating players with bong rips instead of pharmaceuticals.

“I think I’ve always been an advocate for cannabis,” Robinson told KOIN 6 News. “(It’s) calming, calm my stomach, calm my nerves, so from that standpoint I see a lot of positives.”

“I think we definitely have to continue looking into cannabis and the benefits that it has, the health benefits that it has,  because I think it’s come leaps and bounds,” he said.

Uncle to Uncle, I fully support his efforts but if he wants to be taken seriously as a speaker at the Cannabis Collaborative Conference [which many of you obviously know as the CCC] he should consider a name change.

Uncle Spliffy reminds me of a South Park reject.

Keep it simple, Cliff. Spliff Robinson. That’s name that says, “Yeah I fucking love weed with all my heart but I’m not a walking joint, I have real life dreams and goals.”
