Peter Tosh’s Family Unites With SSDP To Fight Marijuana Prohibition


Students for Sensible Drug PolicyBy Niambe Tosh

Have you heard the big news? The first-ever marijuana legalization bill will be introduced in Congress next week. You read that correctly! The bill would end federal marijuana prohibition once and for all.

It was thirty-five years ago that my dad, Peter Tosh, released his groundbreaking hit, “Legalize It.” His song became an anthem for a generation of young people who shared his mission that marijuana should be legal. As a mom and a teacher, I see how our marijuana laws have failed this generation. That’s why I’m proud to work with Students for Sensible Drug Policy to generate support for the upcoming marijuana legalization bill.


Please watch this video to see how you can help us by making your own ad or video in support of the bill. Here’s a hint … You can answer this question: “What does ‘Legalize It’ mean to me?” You can win a free commemorative box set of the album that Sony Records has graciously agreed to offer if we use your ad.

We’ll let you know more details about the bill as they emerge, but in the meantime, let’s make some art for change!

At this point it’s plain to see criminalizing marijuana is an ongoing favour to tobacco companies to eliminate the medicinal competition of marijuana so they can continue killing people with cigarettes.World leaders and politicians are starting to look like protitutes rejecting medical facts to line their pockets and bank roll their re-election with tobacco’s billions while lying to the populace.
