Wailer has been working closely on the move to change the island new laws surrounding the legalization of marijuana. He has been out spoken on the new deal between the Marley estate and Privateer Holding. He has said that the new deal not only has serious implications for future efforts by the country to capitalise on the economic benefits surrounding the legislation of marijuana. Wailer believes that Bob Marley doesn't deserve to be the face of the world's first global cannabis brand. The Marley estate has done since Robert Marley's death is to wipe away the collective works, catalogue, image and rights of The Waliers from public existence. Wailer feels that Peter Tosh are probably more deserving of the honour to be face of the cannabis brand.
