Jah explained to Complex: "'Marijuana' is a special song to me because it tells the benefits of it, but in a smooth way." An advocate for the legalization of weed, he continued, "My brotha Damian Marley and I wanted to create magic with this one. And we think that it will educate the people and send the message out there that Marijuana is not a bad thing! It is medicine for the mind, body and soul."
To coincide with the release of the track, the pair will be showing their support for numerous 4/20 parties around the country. Not only will they be providing attendees with limited edition rolling papers, but they'll also be giving out "Marijuana" posters to celebrate the new song and 4/20.
