TMZ caught up with Irvin withagain to respond to Snoop saying it isn’t just about wanting to get high, but for players to have safer ways to treat pain. “I’m pretty sure if I could’ve met with Snoop and let him know exactly what I’m doing, the businesses I’ve set up and the things I’m doing, I’m pretty sure he would say different,” Irving said.
