Base-Bong: Ex-Marlins pitcher working in marijuna industry

Ryan Tucker has gone from Marlins pitcher to marijuana producer.

According to Leafly, “the largest cannabis website in the world,” Tucker is developing a marijuana dispensary and greenhouse cultivation business in his home state of California.

“I got into the cannabis industry because it saved my life,” Tucker told the publication. “I remember asking myself, ‘Is this my future?’ And four or five years ago might have been a bit early to want to try this. But it went okay and I learned a lot, quick. I threw myself into the growing business and that transitioned into dispensaries.”

Tucker had a brief and unremarkable career with the Marlins.

He appeared in 13 games for them in 2008, going 2-3 with a bloated ERA of 8.27.
