High Roller – Phil Ivey OK’d For Las Vegas Medical Marijuana Dispensary License

Ivey drags the pot once again.

Phil Ivey is a man with varied interests and one of them, it would seem, is helping others through the use of medical marijuana.

The smart guys over at Bluff Magazine picked up on what they called a “throwaway” line at the end of an article from the Las Vegas Review Journal which reported that professional poker player Phil Ivey was one of 26 that was approved for a city pot permit by the Las Vegas City Council.

To put it bluntly, Ivey’s getting into the weed game. (ok, that was bad.) That’s assuming he can navigate through the rest of the red tape required to open up shop.

As you may recall, this isn’t the first instance of Ivey diversifying outside of poker. As we have previously reported Ivey is a major partner (along with NBA star Monta Ellis) in All In Entertainment, a boxing promotion and entertainment agency.

Please tweet us your best/worst puns. Solid ones get RTs.
