Damian Marley and Ocean Grown Extracts have announced that they are partnering on a multi-million dollar business that will convert a former California State prison into a marijuana farm. Bob Marley’s son and the weed company plan to cultivate medical marijuana for state dispensaries.
“Many people sacrificed so much for the herb over the years who got locked up,” says Marley, 38, noting the poetic justice of turning a prison that once housed non-violent drug offenders into a cannabis cultivation facility. “If this [venture] helps people and it’s used for medicinal purposes and inspires people, it’s a success.”
