“Hippies and flower children of the 60’s would always describe one sick beat of any nature as being “Groovy” or “Far out”. We feel the same way. It doesn’t matter if it’s guitar, bass, violin, piano, ukulele, anything! This is the beats that intoxicate our brains, blow our minds, and really send us …well… Far out man.”

Bob Marley, born on February 6th 1945, would have been 67 years of age today in 2012 if he did not fall to illness from a Melanoma infected toe in May of 1981. Regardless, his legacy lives through stoners who toke up in his name on days such as this. Personally, I could not imagine my evolution into the stoner culture without being introduced to some reggae and Bob Marley. His achievements included Band of the Year in 1976 by Rolling Stone Magazine, a Peace Medal of the Third World from the United Nations in 1978, a Jamaican Order of Merit in 1981, and posthumously he was awarded the Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award. Bob Marley was a testament to our culture, he stood for ganja, accepting it as a spiritual and essential part of his life, while spreading the idea that stoners are not attached to some apathetic stigma. Bob Marley brought people together when he was alive, and he continues to follow the same pursuit in death. We miss you Bob Marley, and I recommend we all toke up in his memory. Go out today, share some weed with a friend in need, and spread the word about Bob Marley. In short, stir it up.
