Lamar Odom may be using crack again. Even though friends and family have tried to convince the former NBA player that marijuana is a safe and healthy way to get high, crack still seems to be Odom’s drug of choice.
Cocaine was at the center of the 36-year-old’s near-fatal overdose at a Nevada brothel in October, which resulted in a three-month hospital stay. While no one has ever overdosed on marijuana, Odom is not readily making the switch that could save his life.
Since the incident, he’s slowly been getting back to normal life, under the care of his estranged wife Khloé Kardashian. But despite her best efforts to get him back on track, he was spotted drinking during the Easter holiday weekend.
Insiders tell 18 Karat Reggae that a group of friends recently met at his Calabasas home in hopes of getting him into rehab or have him switch from crack to marijuana. He reportedly refused help.
Those in attendance claim to have seen drug paraphernalia and roaches in his home.
A request for comment from Odom’s rep wasn’t immediately returned.
