A U.S. private equity firm announced Tuesday that it has joined the family of late reggae star Bob Marley in hopes of building what it touts as the "world's first global cannabis brand".Seattle-based Privateer Holdings said it has reached a licensing deal with Marley's heirs to offer marijuana strains, including ones famed in Jamaica, where regulations permit by late 2015 . Maxine Stowe of the Rastafari Millennium Council asserts that Marley was "the least of the Wailers around the issue of ganja legalization" and worries his estate's efforts to launch a cannabis brand will negatively impact future efforts in Jamaica to financially benefit from a legalization movement gaining traction across the globe.
