The Curse of Erectile Dysfunction Obliterates Cocaine OD For Lamar Odom
Poor Lamar Odom. He is found facedown and unresponsive in a brothel and headlines shriek about the “dangers of herbal Viagra,” while in small print in the article, Odom’s collapse is being treated as a drug overdose, cocaine and opiate overdose to be precise. Let’s not talk about the man’s cocaine addition or addiction to painkillers that may have just about killed him, let’s talk about his woody, shall we? Or lack thereof? The man has a serious drug addiction and the news headlines are concerned with his penis?
It’s not the first time news reports have surfaced regarding Odom’s drug problems.
The 6-foot, 10-inch-tall (2-metre) athlete has long been reported to have had issues with cocaine abuse, although this has never been publicly confirmed. He has admitted only to using marijuana.
During the 2000-2001 season, Odom was suspended for violating the NBA’s antidrug policy. In 2013, he pleaded no contest in Los Angeles to a charge of driving under the influence and was ordered to undergo rehabilitation for three months for alcohol abuse.
It’s not the first time drug and alcohol reports have surfaced, and while his addictions seemed to be controlling his life, it’s his penis performance that is currently being celebrated. Herbal viagra? How about deadly amounts of cocaine?
Nye County Sheriff Sharon Wehrly said Wednesday that investigators determined that Odom, 35, had been using cocaine on Saturday, the day he checked in to the brothel in the town of Crystal, but that it wasn’t known whether he had continued to do so during the weekend.
What a sad commentary that the man is being talked in a way that sweeps away his deadly drug habit, instead sensationalizing sexual encounters. You know it’s a tragedy when it takes the Kardashians to add levity to a situation, and yet, the Kardashians are showing the signs of humanity that are normally absent from their televised encounters:
In a recent episode of “Keeping Up with the Kardashians,” Kardashian is shown taking a call from Odom, who was grieving the death of his best friend in June.
“Lamar has suffered so much loss in his life,” Kardashian said. “I’m really on high alert for Lamar because anything will set him to spiral, and that’s kind of the last thing I want for him.”
Spiral it is, and let’s all just hope it’s one from which he recovers.
