Clifford Robinson was drafted by the Portland Trail Blazers in 1989 and went on to play for the Blazers for 8 seasons, helping lead the team to two NBA Finals appearances (1990 and 1992). During his time with the Trail Blazers, Cliff was named the NBA Sixth Man of the Year (1993), and selected to the NBA All-Star team (1994). Cliff would go on to play for four other NBA teams during a career that spanned 18 years, but he has always loved the State of Oregon and is a proud resident of Portland.
Having experienced the stigma and persecution that comes with cannabis prohibition firsthand, both on the court and off the court, Cliff Robinson is on a mission to free the plant. That is why he submitted written testimony in support of cannabis reform legislation in Oregon, and has also publicly endorsed a cannabis legalization proposal in Connecticut. Cliff plans on working with other reform efforts across the country and leading the effort to end cannabis prohibition in professional sports leagues. Cannabis prohibition does not work, and it’s time for society and sports leagues to take a more sensible approach.
Cliff Robinson is launching his line of Uncle Cliffy cannabis products on Thursday June 8th at Oregon’s Finest, located at 736 NE Martin Luther King Jr Blvd, Portland, OR 97232. An appearance by Cliff Robinson is planned for 4:20 p.m. at the dispensary, which will be debuting two Uncle Cliffy pre-rolls – GG4 for relaxation (indica) and J1 for performance (sativa). Uncle Cliffy pre-rolls are filled with only the best craft cannabis, produced by Pistil Point Farms, which is located in Portland, Oregon.
People that come down to the dispensary will be able to enter to win one of two basketballs autographed by Uncle Cliffy himself. In addition to Thursday’s launch at Oregon’s Finest location on Martin Luther King Jr Blvd, Uncle Cliffy pre-rolls will also be available at Oregon’s Finest’s other Portland location (1327 NW Kearney St). Both stores will have autographed basketballs with contest entry information on-site. Uncle Cliffy pre-rolls will also be available at Medication Station on the Oregon Coast and Talent Health Club in Talent, Oregon starting this weekend.
Cliff Robinson is going to lead by example and fight to end the stigma and take the handcuffs off the plant. The Uncle Cliffy sports cannabis company believes that all members of the cannabis space have a duty to represent the industry responsibly, and plans to be a good steward of the plant.
