After a year filled with more publicity than his 1968 Heisman Trophy winning season, O.J. Simpson will once again be a free man in a matter of months, welcome to rent homes in wealthy L.A. suburbs, attend sports memorabilia conventions, purchase leather driving gloves and even smoke legal weed.
According to a report from TMZ, the stipulations of Simpson’s parole will allow the disgraced celebrity to drink alcohol as long as he stays under the legal limit of 0.08 BAC, and smoke marijuana as long as he has a recommendation from a doctor.
For most parolees, smoking weed, even if it’s been legally recommended by a physician, is still a pipe dream. But for the Juice, who reportedly had a number of special privileges behind bars, there isn’t much of his life that can be described as normal.
O.J. will remain locked up until he’s paroled in October, and it’s not yet set where he will live once he is released, but in Nevada, where he is currently incarcerated, Florida, where he lived before the arrest, and California, where O.J. grew up and lived most of his early life, each state has at least some form of medical marijuana system that would allow the 70 year-old to spend his remaining years getting stoned.
