BOB MARLEY TO BE INDUCTED INTO FIRST-EVER POT HALL OF FAME

NEW YORK (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – All that pot smoking has paid off for the late reggae star Bob Marley – he’s about to be the first inductee into the world’s first marijuana Hall of Fame.

High Times magazine is starting the wacky weed Hall of Fame to pay tribute to the ganja greats who turned folks on to the spiritual benefits of pot.

The magazine’s editors have chosen Marley as the first Hall of Famer because they say he is one of marijuana’s great heroes who helped bring ganja to the United States.

Marley’s induction ceremony will be held on November 25th at the 10th annual Cannabis Cup, a convention for marijuana enthusiasts that takes place in Amsterdam, Netherlands, from November 24 to 28.

There’s no word on whether any of Marley’s family will be attending the induction, but organizers says the Cannabis Cup band will be playing plenty of Marley tunes.
