Highlife is a 4/20 tribute.
For many years, April 20 has been the day to celebrate all things marijuana and to call for the loosening of what many say are outdated laws that ban the substance in many countries.
However, long before the popularity of 4/20, Peter Tosh, Bob Marley, and countless others have advocated for the legalization of Marijuana through music.
In 2015, Jamaican lawmakers passed an act to decriminalise small amounts of marijuana.
