One of the world’s most iconic musicians and leading advocate for medical marijuana legalization would have been 70 years old this past February. Bob Marley, who was well known for composing and singing numerous memorable hits in the reggae style was remembered earlier this year to mark the occasion. In his home country of Jamaica, citizens celebrated by holding reggae jam sessions and his family commissioned a video in his name too to remember his ideas for making the world a better place.
Herbs From Nature, The Planet’s Natural Medical Dispensary
One of the most memorable traits of Marley was how he publicly spoke out about Medical Marijuana and how much he believed in its many healing benefits. Bob Marley fiercely believed that there are spiritual, healing and meditational benefits to using the plant and defiantly opposed those who would try to use marijuana to incite fear and negativity amongst the public for political gain.
Bob’s Argument For The Legalization Of The Cannabis Drug
Marley would refer the Cannabis Drug as a herb and as a herb is a plant, he argued that herbs are good for everything and that something that is naturally occurring can’t possibly be as bad as politicians tried to make out. He made the point that politicians should have the public’s best interest and health as their highest priority, and by blocking the use of marijuana, even those who safely purchase it from a Medical Dispensary, this gives a very different message about their motives.
Whilst some may believe that Bob Marley’s message was simply to spread love and peace by getting high, his son believes differently. Ziggy Marley says that his father was a revolutionary. He explains that Bob was searching for social justice and acceptance. He wanted to encourage people to stand up for everything that they believed in, not just using marijuana. People should be entitled to basic human rights, and this was what Bob supported most of all. His message is just as relevant today as it was all those years ago.
A Chance For A Global Marijuana Delivery Service
Now, it is Bob Marley’s family who is working hard on his behalf to continue his efforts with marijuana legalization. They joined with a private company in 2014 to create a global Marijuana Delivery Service, using Marley as the mascot. The move, whilst intended to help everyone around the world to have access to marijuana if they require it, has also helped reawaken the memory of Marley for his family. His daughter remembers how her father used to feel that his mind opened whenever he used the drug, allowing his creativity to flow. He considered marijuana to be a gift.
