From recreational use to the various medical benefits such as controlling seizures, reducing the symptoms of ALS and Parkinson’s Disease and more, Marijuana has been deemed the source of life by many. Indeed, singers across all genres have sang the prowess of this natural plant, such as dancehall and reggae recording artist Bob Da Builda with "Weed Is Life"
"Gimme The Weed Me want The Ganja Gimme The Weed Me Want It" sings Bob on the upbeat dancehall track that cleverly pairs Bob's prolific lyrics. Speaking on the song and it's inspiration, Bob explained "In Toronto where I reside marijuana is now legal and my short term goal is to open my own Dispensary in the near future providing the highest pre-packaged cannabis. It basically talks about how successful I am as a hustler or how successful one can be distributing the pharmaceutical."
