If there is one thing that Bob Marley was associated with, next to great music, was the marijuana plant.
The Bob Marley Museum in Kingston, Jamaica will soon finally have marijuana for sale.
According to a Benzinga report, and information procured exclusively ahead of an official announcement, the Marley family and Docklight Brands will open a Marley Natural-branded dispensary at Bob Marley’s former home and recording studio.
The Marley Natural product lineup will include THC and CBD products as well as accessories, and will be sold there.
In Jamaica it is legal for residents and tourists alike to use cannabis for therapeutic purposes however 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 sometime in 2021.
“We are thrilled to work with the Marley family to bring the Marley Natural portfolio to Jamaica through this flagship retail location. This unique cannabis experience will bring to life the ethos of Bob Marley,” said Damian Marano, CEO of Docklight Brands. “It is incredibly meaningful to have the first Marley Natural dispensary in the world at the Bob Marley Museum in Kingston, Jamaica.”
