Video: Macka B – Medical Marijuana Card 2014

Macka B is renowned for his social commentary and extraordinary lyrical content. He has been at the forefront of the UK Reggae scene for over 30 years. This uniquely animated video tells Macka B’s real life experience in his song “Medical Marijuana Card”. The song, which is based on a true story, tells what the Reggae star experienced; being pulled over by the police while driving in California with a friend who had his medical marijuana card to declare his rights to have marijuana in his possession. Macka B was inspired by the experience which gave birth to the song. It was first released in 2012, on the album Change The World & the song “Medical Marijuana Song” has had a total revamp, creating a unique animated Reggae Video. As the Medicinal benefits of Marijuana have become indisputable, laws and people’s attitudes have changed worldwide, with many leading doctors advocating the use of Medical Marijuana.
