Rico Lamitte (Suavecito Rico) TedX speaker, NCAA Football Athlete, Founder of LA and Orange County Cannagather, Founder of The Suave Life and recognized as 2018 High Times 100 most influential people in cannabis, BAKER rep and former opioid addict.
Rico was an asset to the NCAA, guaranteed to always get a heads up on drug testing and was presented with opioids to cover pain relief. He ended up rupturing his tendon, got depressed and dove into Norco’s, Ambient, Zoloft and other drugs. It spiraled out of control as he finds himself slinging dub sacks in front of Wrigley Field a college graduate with 2 degrees from Northwestern University.
He found his way to the finance world while still being a secret addict until that fateful moment when he was called out for his addiction and was introduced to cannabis as a treatment. He begun to substitute weed for opioids and eventually managed to shake the grip the pills had over him.
Rico started realizing his relationship for being “the glue connecting the trap house to the penthouse” was coming in handy in the cannabis industry. He joined up with Baker Technologies and he dove into events with Cannagather and his brand The Suave Life.
