G98.7FM Entertainment News
Three time Grammy winner Bunny Wailer says now that marijuana is legalized in Jamaica, Rastafarians should get a cut just like the international corporations, so he’s started a crowdfunding site to raise funds to retain lawyers to protect Rastafari interest in Ganja.
In an interview with the Jamaica Observer, the legend’s campaign on Indiegogo is called “Wailers One Love Legalize It! RastaGanja” and he’s hoping to raise 1 million U.S dollars that will also go to registering a trademark.
He says “ Ganja is tied to Rastafari culture in a major way, It cannot be separated,” he went on to say “ Huge corporations are reaping the benefits, We have to tax those corporations. And in going after it, we have to protect ourselves.”
So he’s getting word out and holding a Ganja Motorcade March on Saturday May 2nd from Emancipation Square in Spanish Town to the Good ear Oval In St. Thomas.
Wailer may be in for a battle, last year legal marijuana made 2.4 billion in the U.S.
