Throwback: Peter Tosh-Legalize It

Legalize It album became an introduction to reggae music for many American listeners. Tosh’s debut solo album led the way for his legend to begin outside of The Wailers and is the first of seven studio albums. Tosh was violently killed during a home invasion in 1987 at the age of 42 and did not live to see the spread of marijuana legalization currently taking place around the world. He is remembered for his work with The Wailers, his solo music and his politics that were also anti-nuclear war and anti-racism.
