Ziggy Marley is now like his father who died in 1981 aged just 36, he disclosed that early age smoking was always a common thing in the Rastafarian culture.
“Smoking marijuana wasn’t considered a bad thing in Rastafarian culture. It wasn’t something to hide from the kids. I can even remember when I had my first “spliff”, I was around nine. I was very young, too young,” he said.
However, he disclosed that if not for his father’s blessing he wouldn’t have started smoking at a young age indicating that he didn’t smoke for fun but he smoked to heighten his spirituality.
