Redman is using his cannabis activism to push for legalization as well as trying to bust the myth that marijuana is a gateway drug into harder drugs. He is also pushing hard for people of color to benefit within the cannabis industry. He wants cannabis studies to continue so that more medical benefits can be found and more people can be helped.
His main goal is to change the Federal Government’s classification of marijuana as a dangerous substance. He wants people to be able to benefit in this budding market, not just pharmaceutical companies and the governments controlling them. He would like real dreams to be built out of it.
Redman and Method Man are now wanting to promote their own brands of marijuana not just lend their names to something grown and controlled by someone else. Both rappers are actively pushing to get their own brands and labels for them off the ground in the near future. Both men want to help people through their marijuana.
