WITH the Jamaican government hinting that the legalisation of marijuana is a strong possibility, the 'weed' has become one hot topic.

Given the mood of the times, Hi-Grade Ganja Anthems, an 18-song ode to the 'good herb', will be released April 15 by Greensleeves/VP Records.

A release from the company says on Hi-Grade Anthems artistes "rally together for the international movement and advocacy for

marijuana use".

It includes old school rockers like I Love Marijuana by Linval Thompson, I Man A Grasshopper (Pablo Moses), Better Collie (Horace Andy), Sensimania (Welton Irie) and an updated version of Sugar Minott's DC, done by Minott, Fantan Mojah and Military Man.

The dancehall generation is represented by I-Octane (Puff It), Keida (Ganja Tea) and Jamelody featuring Natural Black on

High Grade.

There are also songs from American artistes like Mighty Mystic (Cali Green), rapper Snoop Lion and Bermudan Collie Budz (Smoke The Weed) and Italian singer Alborosie who does One Draw with Camilla.
