Kyle Turley is now a marijuana entrepreneur

Most likely, every New Orleans Saints fan remembers the name Kyle Turley, a former Saints player who was made famous for his aggressive reaction to defend a team member. Back in 2001, Turley burst out in rage during a game against the New York Jets when his teammate, Aaron Brooks, was grabbed by the facemask by a Jets player. His rage gained him a bad reputation in the NFL for this and other conduct that took him to the descent of his career. Those turbulent days seem to be in the past, and Turley thanks marijuana for saving his life, marriage and for helping him deal with many consequences from playing the sport. It had so much of an impact that he is introducing his new cannabis business.

“Without a doubt, cannabis saved my life,” Turley told Benzinga. “I wouldn’t be where I am today; I would not have my family, my kids, my house, everything I have right now, if not for cannabis.” On top of that, Turley said that cannabis has cured his wife of skin cancer with daily use of cannabidiol (CBD) as well as boosting his two children’s immune system.

It was March 13th when his first cannabis dispensary was opened in Moreno Valley, California. He is friends with Brandon Rexroad, who is the founder of Shango. Turley’s store will be working under the same Shango brand’s ecosystem, and its business has been promoted by The Moreno Valley Chamber of Commerce.

Turley is passionate about CBD and cannabis, as he claims it has had outstanding results in his family’s life. He has become an advocate of NFL players after all the suffering of psychological issues and pain all associated with playing the sport.
