Richardson, 21, was on her way to the Tokyo Games after winning the women’s 100-meter race in Oregon. Her Olympic dreams hit a wall after she tested positive for marijuana and was slapped with a one-month suspension for violating the 2021 World Anti-Doping Code.

Meanwhile, as previously reported, it looks like she won’t be missing out on cashing in some money. According to TMZ, the vaping company Dr. Dabber is offering Sha’Carri to become an ambassador or, more accurately, one of Dabber’s “doctors.” TMZ obtained the offer letter which lays out the responsibilities with the pay of $250k.

TMZ writes: “The good folks over at Dr. Dabber — a vaping org specializing in all things weed — have extended a cannabis-laced olive branch to the U.S. sprinting star … it’s a high-paying job that doesn’t really require a whole lot of physical labor.”

The offer is for Sha’Carri to become an ambassador of sorts — or, more accurately, one of Dabber’s “doctors.”

The company says, “Considering your talent and grace over these past weeks, we would love to offer you the opportunity to work with our team as a spokesperson for Dr. Dabber. This entails testing our award-winning dab rigs and vape pens as a resident ‘doctor.’”

It’s unclear if the star has accepted the offer.
