Why Smoking Weed Is Great

Pass the Dutchie pon the left hand side.

December 03, 2014

Hopping onboard for Damian Marley's inaugural Jamrock Reggae Cruise allowed us the opportunity to experience once-in-a-lifetime dancehall music moments, to admire the festive cornucopia of irie fashions and, maybe most importantly, to pick the brains of reggae's leading artists and DJs about what else: weed. We asked 11 musicians—smokers and non-smokers alike—to share to their personal thoughts on cannabis, the benefits of its medicinal uses, and the rise of vape culture. Their answers ranged from the poetic: "When I get high, I never get low," to the industrious: "Hemp seed oil can be used instead of the gasoline that's polluting the air." Check out the entertaining (and oddly informative) clip above, and if you're ready to take a hit of the iriest vibes at sea, the Jamrock Reggae Cruise sets sail again next year; check their website for more info.
