Legalize It! Bob Marley’s Son Hails Decriminalization of Pot in Jamaica
SAN JUAN – Julian Marley, son of reggae legend Bob Marley, has released a song celebrating the decriminalization of marijuana in Jamaica as a liberating experience.
The song, “Lemme go,” focuses on how the amendment to the 1948 Dangerous Drugs Act benefits Rastafarians, who consider smoking marijuana – which Jamaicans call ganja – a sacrament.
Julian, himself a Rasta, uses the song to praise marijuana as a “stress reliever, natural healer.”
“Lemme go” was produced by another Marley offspring, Damian, and is expected to be on Julian’s next album, to be released in 2016.
The amendment to Jamaica’s 1948 Dangerous Drugs Law decriminalizes cannabis possession for medicinal, religious and research purposes. Legalization of the substance seems to be taking place in many areas of the world, and maybe Jamaica’s step will encourage more areas of the United States to decriminalize it too urging more medical patients to be able to use such products like juul for weed and many others to allow for consumption of marijuana in different ways. It is already possible to order marijuana online in certain areas, and this number only seems to be growing every year. You can order marijuana from many different areas, some you can purchase for recreational use and medical purposes but others you can only purchase for medical purposes only, you should check the legal precautions before deciding to use marijuana. You can purchase a pennsylvania marijuana card online or you could visit your doctors.
Under the revised law, which took effect in April, possession of 2 ounces or less of marijuana is treated as an administrative offense subject to a ticket.
