The Cannabis Act you say?
It’s no secret that hip-hop heads have a strong and long-standing relationship with weed. In fact, hip-hop has weed to thank for some of the best songs the genre has seen. The story of some of the biggest legends in the game wouldn’t be same if you had to cut the trees out… think Cypress Hill, Redman, Snoop Dogg… and more recently Canada’s own Belly, Wiz Khalifa and so many more.
We also know a lot of our viewers are serious weed heads, but there’s a lot of misinformation, or a lack of information when it comes to legalizing access to weed across the country.
