Lenny Dykstra used to be a frequent celebrity commentator on CNBC. He apparently got into the financial adviser arena after he retired from sports. I realize now why he hasn't been on TV for a while. I guess they didn't want a cannabis user giving financial advice on cable TV. Funny thing is, his advice was always as good as the "straight" adviser's advice.
