One More Thing to Look Forward to This Year

Under Jamaican law, both residents and tourists can use cannabis for therapeutic purposes. Visitors will need to get a doctor’s note in order to be able to acquire cannabis legally.

“Along with music, herb was such an important part of my father’s life. He was always a strong advocate for marijuana and all of its healing qualities. We are thrilled to honor him and his contribution to the world of music and now cannabis at the Bob Marley Museum,” said Stephen Marley.

The store is expected to open later this year.
