Retired Ravens offensive tackle Jonathan Ogden may be embarking on a potentially lucrative business venture.
The Pro Football Hall of Famer has applied for a medical marijuana dispensary license in Nevada, according to the Las Vegas Review-Journal.
There are a limited amount of licenses for legalized medical marijuana businesses in Clark County, Nevada with 109 companies having filed applications.
Ogden's lawyer confirmed to The Baltimore Sun that the former NFL player is a 3.3-percent owner of a company called Global Harmony, emphasizing that Ogden is an investor on behalf of his wife, Kema. Ogden is an 11-time Pro Bowl selection who retired following the 2007 NFL season and lives in the Las Vegas area.
"His wife had an idea to get involved in a business and Jonathan decided to support his wife and didn't see anything wrong with it," said Rick Hyde, Ogden's Washington, D.C.-based lawyer. "It's something she wanted to do and he tried to be a nice husband and support her. He himself doesn't have anything to do with the business other than allowing her to participate in a business that's she's pursuing. She wants to try her hand in her business. She owns a boxing gym and he supports that as well. He himself has a passing interest in that as well."
