Jamaica-born reggae singer Mr. Bertus is calling on the United States congress to legalize marijuana immediately.
As the COVID-19 pandemic seems to be waning, the singer is getting ready to tour the United States to promote his new single “Brain Food” and would like to be able to freely smoke his cannabis without being harassed by law enforcement.
Brain Food extols the virtues of marijuana with lyrics such as, “If you only know the blessings that the ganja bring, you would never ever stay away.”
“I was born and raised in the Portmore section of St. Catherine Jamaica and grew up seeing almost my entire community using marijuana has a healing herb without any ill effects. It is surprising that a country as advanced as the United States is not advanced enough to see that marijuana is the healing of the nation. So I am urging both the Congress and Senate to legalize the herb,“ said the singer whose full name is Marlon Ainsworth.
Brain Food is produced by 18 Karat Reggae Productions and is featured on the 18 Karat Reggae Gold 2021 album. The album also features reggae greats like Luciano and Little Kirk along with fast rising stars like Diligent CityBoss and Ras Fraser.
Mr. Bertus is currently one of Jamaica’s hidden gems who will undoubtedly be a household name in the near future. He also other songs on the album such as “wicked, dem a come” and “Come and Go” featuring Ico Flames.
