The Bush Doctor Says Legalize It

Reggae artist Peter Tosh started the band the Wailers with Bob Marley and Bunny Wailer, and the three rose to fame as successful musicians. Born Winston Hubert McIntosh on October 19, 1944, in Westmoreland, Jamaica, to a pair of parents too young to raise him, Tosh was raised by his aunt in Grange Hill. Tosh enjoyed musical success after leaving the Wailers and embarking on a solo career. He wrote many of the most famous songs popularized by his one-time bandmate Bob Marley, whom he taught to play guitar. Many of those songs had to do with decriminalizing marijuana. Tosh was killed during an attempted robbery at his Jamaica home in 1987.
