Jamaican Artist Douglas Reid and the Art of Ganja

MERRY JANE’s Jamaica week continues with an interview of Grosvenor Gallery owner Douglas Reid.

August 6 marks the 55th anniversary of Jamaica breaking free from the United Kingdom’s colonial rule. To honor the occasion, we are proud to bring you MERRY JANE Presents Jamaica Week. All week leading up to Jamaican Independence Day, MERRY JANE is celebrating the Jamaican people and the many great things that the island has given to the world — from music, dance, and food, to the Rastafarian religion, cannabis culture, and good vibes.

In recent years, Jamaican artist and gallery owner Douglas Reid has turned Grosvenor Gallery’s attentions toward the struggle to decriminalize marijuana in Jamaica. 

Watch the video above to watch Reid walk us through one if his recent shows aimed at creating a dialogue around the economic and legal impacts of Jamaica’s outdated marijuana laws.
