Sophisticated roots artiste Jah9 has added The Marijuana to her growing catalogue of thought-provoking material.

The single, recorded on the 'Steamaz Riddim' by production label Biggy Music, is the latest track to be released from the project. This is the first time Jah9 is recording with Biggy Music since embarking on a professional music career in 2008.

Earlier this year, Biggy Music released Jesse Royal's Finally and Deep Jahi's Till a Morning, on the 'Steamaz Riddim'.

Jah9 believes Steamaz is fitting for her current artistic direction, and also wanted to share potentially life-saving information with persons.

"I am currently working on other projects to do with the use of ganja for health and sustainable development, so recording The Marijuana was ideal at this time. Also, I love to steam. I've been steaming herb, exclusively, for well over a decade." Jah9 shared.

The song highlights various uses for marijuana, including cancer treatment, and speaks about the Rastafarian contribution to the economic advancement of the marijuana industry.

Jah9 is also focusing on more strategic singles, touring, and community- development projects before releasing a full-length album project in early 2016.

She will also be embarking on the Harvest Moon Tour, a short trip through Colorado and South California, USA, at the end of September.
