Grammy Award-winning Damion ‘Jr Gong’ Marley has released his fourth album, Stony Hill on his birthday, July 21. His promotional path of his album is accompanied by the news of the artiste’s incursion into the medicinal marijuana business.
In an interview, he says that marijuana is sort of similarly use as spiritual sacrament and recreational use. In terms of the spiritual aspect, I think he is speaking from a Rastafarian perspective. His aim is to bring awareness that Marijuana is actually an healing ailment to various kinds of illnesses. In October 2016, it was announced that Junior Gong partnered with Ocean Grown Extracts which was converted into a cannabis grow space, to cultivate medical marijuana for state dispensaries according to the Jamaica Gleaner Newspaper. But be sure to get Mr. Marley’s new album out now and listen to his single called “Medication”.
