For the inaugural issue of the Marley Natural Magazine, we asked photographer Jim Mangan to document the agricultural methods used by ganja farmers across Jamaica. With the expert guidance of Kathie Lennon — a Jamaican born-and-bred cannabis consultant — Mangan visited five farms in five parishes — Westmoreland, Hanover, St. Elizabeth, Trelawny, and Portland — and witnessed the many ways in which farmers grow and interact with cannabis. Here is the photo diary of his cross-country journey. Special thanks to Blacka, Michael Vassar, Scandal and Tiger.
