ok ...he certainly was a very talented man no doubt there, have always loved his music, crying shame to die so young, so much for the latest research that cannabis kills cancer cells

His religeous beliefs wouldn't allow him to use western medicine,it started out what they thought was a fungus under his toe,then he was advised to get the toe amputated,in which he did not.as his condition worsened Marley went to europe for some alternative type of treatment,it was unsuccessful.
