The 38years old reggae singer Damian Marley shook the world with his 2005 album ‘Welcome to Jamrock’, and his collaborative album ‘Distant Relatives’ with Nas in 2010. Now, his newest surprise is on marijuana business.
The Marley family name is synonymous with cannabis in tradition. The family is responsible for Marley Natural,a strain of marijuana aptly which was started with Damian Marley back in February. Damian,also called Jr. Gong has partnered with Ocean Grown Extract on this venture. In September, he opened a 3,000-square-foot dispensary in Denver, Colorado.
If Proposition 64 is passed in November then the recreational use of marijuana will be allowed in California.
According to the marijuana businessman:
“I didn’t know it would happen this way. This was definitely something we were working towards for a long time, before I was even born.
There was Peter Tosh’s ‘Legalize It’ and songs like that — this is something our culture has been working towards. I was optimistic that it would one day be legal — and now it is here” Marley told Billboard magazine this month.
