Following news that he would be transforming a former California prison into a weed dispensary, Damian Marley has ventured deeper into the marijuana industry with the recent purchase of High Times Magazine.

According to laweekly.com, High Times, the premier pot culture publication in the United States, was this week purchased by a group of investors that includes the son of the late reggae legend, Bob Marley.

The High Times publications claims 236,000 print subscribers and 20 million online readers each month. It was launched in 1974 by Thomas King Forçade, who reportedly smuggled weed from the Caribbean to help finance the magazine.

In a statement to the press, Marley dubbed his involvement in the buy out as an honour.

"High Times also had me daydreaming of so many beautiful strains that at the time I had not yet had the chance to experience. It is now an honour to be a part of the High Times legacy that I've been a fan of for so many years," Marley said.
