Free the herbs! Today’s new video comes from Acmatic and they’re all about Jane.

In the video, Marijuana is personified at times wearing chains and embracing Lopo while he raps. A great effort here as the song has been previewed for months and seeing that the legalization of Marijuana in Jamaica may see the light of day, this is a proper song to get the people listening.
