News Americas, NEW YORK, NY, Fri. June 2, 2017: A Caribbean roots Grammy winning artist is the new part-owner of High Times Magazine, the New York-based monthly magazine that advocates the legalization of cannabis.
Damian Robert Nesta “Jr. Gong” Marley, the son of reggae legend, Robert Nesta Marley, is reportedly 1 of 20 new investors in the ownership group Oreva Capital who bought the 43-year-old cannabis magazine for $70 million.
Marley, 38, said his cannabis career is rooted in High Times.
“When I was in high school I used to grow some herb,” Marley said in a news release. “I learned to differentiate male from the female plant by reading High Times magazine. It is now an honor to be a part of the High Times legacy that I’ve been a fan of for so many years.”
Damian Marley is also producing his own line of marijuana, as co-founder of Stony Hill.
Damian is the youngest son of Bob Marley’s union with Cindy Breakspeare, Miss World 1976. He was 2 years old when his father died.
