Reggae fans around the world associate the music with ganja.
The two have been synonymous since the 1960s, a period when black consciousness emerged in Jamaica.
Artistes, most notably Peter Tosh, have openly called for the legalisation of ganja since the 1970s.
Tosh, who died in 1987, would have been pleased with justice minister Mark Golding's announcement Thursday that the Jamaican government has approved changes to the law as it relates to ganja.
These changes includes no criminal record for persons arrested for small quantities of ganja; and use of the weed for medical/medicinal and religious purposes.
No doubt, this development will inspire a flood of songs. Here are some of the most popular weed anthems.
