Damian Marley’s Song Says Marijuana Is “Medication”; These Videos Prove It

Damian “Jr. Gong” Marley and his brother,  Stephen “Ragga” Marley, shot the video for Jr. Gong’s new single “Medication” at the former Claremont Custody Center in Coalinga, CA. Once a correctional facility, it’s now the site of legal marijuana cultivation—part of the Ocean Grown cannabis corporation, co-owned by Jr.  Gong. In the music video—directed by Nick Walker, produced by Christopher Salzgeber, and executive produced by Sheira Rees-Davies for Scheme Engine—footage of Bob Marley’s sons reveling in an ocean of fragrant ganja buds alternates with snippets of testimonials from patients who can verify the widespread belief that cannabis heals, because they know it for a fact, firsthand.

Today MASS APPEAL premieres seven stories of patients who have benefited from the use of cannabis, followed by exclusive commentary from Damian “Jr. Gong” Marley. These voices must be heard in this time, when cuts to health care programs are on the way, when Attorney General Jeff Sessions has asked congress to repeal protections against medical marijuana, when the senate is considering legislation that would give Sessions powers to escalate the federal war on drugs.

In April of last year, then Senator Sessions made the outrageous remark that “good people don’t smoke marijuana.” This is a man who once said he was cool with the KKK until he learned that they smoked pot.
Now that Sessions is the U.S. Attorney General one can only hope that he will take a look at these videos and realize just how wrong he is. Here we see good people—writers, soldiers, children—whose health and well-being has been vastly improved by use of cannabis, an ancient herb whose healing properties have been touted for thousands of years —et which is classified under U.S. law as a dangerous substance with no health benefits, with only limited research allowed. Now that attitudes are starting to change there is still hope to harness the power of marijuana medication. Check the videos below, and then read Jr. Gong’s thoughts on the matter.
