SAN JOSE, Calif. — “We selling legal dope!” former NFL running back Marshawn Lynch said Tuesday with a smile.

Lynch spent part of his 4/20 working as a budtender at Airfield Supply. Co in San Jose where he was promoting his Dodi Blunt cannabis product. Airfield was one of a few Bay Area establishments to have the limited release blunts available.

Several dozen fans waited patiently in line for a chance to meet Lynch and to purchase some of his product. The idea to have Lynch launch his product at Airfield came easy due to the parties’ shared focus on community.

“Marshawn’s company and Airfield really share the same values it’s about community, sustainability and it’s really about building people up,” said Hudson Moore, chief retail officer and general manager with Airfield.

Some brought jerseys and other sports paraphernalia to sign but some just wanted to bring a snack for the Super Bowl-winning running back. Nicholas Mory brought a pack of Sour Skittles for Lynch.

Dodi Blunts were limited to one per customer but those eager to try Lynch’s products can purchase at Airfield in the coming weeks according to Hudson.
