Lamar Odom is still struggling to stay sober, it has emerged, as the star was spotted on a suspicious shopping trip at a San Fernando Valley pharmacy picking up some vital home essentials for every crack-friendly home. The disgraced basketballer was spotted leaving the apothecary with a bag full of goodies, most noticeably at pack of Chore Boy copper scrubbing pads; a staple requirement in homemade crack pipes.

The still-struggling Mr Kardashian, whose relationship to wife Khloe Kardashian may be as good as over given his continued use of drugs, was seen by TMZ photographers leaving the pharmacy with his driver, who was carrying a clear white plastic bag with the scrubbing pads in them back to the car as Lamar trailed. TMZ goes on to report that the struggling NBA star was spotted at the pharmacy shortly after being seen picking up some clothes and supplies from Khloe's assistant. The pharmacy lies close to the home he and Khloe once shared.

The reason Chore Boy copper scrubs are so suspicious is because they are a key component of a homemade crack pipe, filtering the smoke before inhalation. The Wikipedia page for Chore Boy scrubbing pads states, states, "a small wad of the copper wool (the steel variety will not suffice for this purpose) is inserted into the end of a short cylindrical glass tube (sometimes called a "straight shooter") and serves to function as a screen and/or a matrix by which the melting freebase can be thoroughly dispersed across the large surface area of the copper wool."

Since the end of the last NBA season, Odom has spiralled in to an uncontrollable battle with drugs, with crack cocaine apparently being his narcotic of choice. Earlier this month, he was forced into a rehab centre in Los Angeles, but left the facility under his own accord after only a day. Let's hope that Lamar has a hankering for a deep clean in his kitchen rather than anything else, but given his recent behaviour, it sadly looks as though Lamar is letting his life slip away.
