The son of the Legendary Reggae musician, Bob Marley, Ziggy Marley has revealed that he fell in love with marijuana at the age of 9.
According to Ziggy Marley, his father was in support of him smoking marijuana at the tender age of 9.
“Smoking marijuana wasn’t considered a bad thing in Rastafarian culture… It wasn’t something to hide from the kids”, he revealed.
He continued that;
“I wouldn’t have let myself do it in my father’s place’, he explained. But it was a part of our religion – we’re one of those ancient cultures with traditions that modern society wouldn’t accept”.
Revealing what smoking marijuana does for him, he disclosed;
“When I first consciously decided to smoke weed as a teenager, I approached it from a spiritual point of view…It’s given me more insight into myself and into my spirituality, and I use it as a form of influence when reading scriptures and books about spirituality. I use it to give me a different perspective so that my mind isn’t in the same place that it normally is. I turn into a shaman”.
