According to authorities, a man accused of attacking and seriously injuring the son of late reggae icon Peter Tosh at a New Jersey jail is facing an aggravated assault charge. The Bergen County Sheriff’s Office states that Kyrie Baum’s charge, made public Friday, stems from a Feb. 21 attack at a county jail that left 37-year-old Jawara McIntosh with traumatic brain injuries and in a coma. Baum has already been indicted, and it is unclear if he had an attorney.

McIntosh also is a pro-marijuana activist and performed the song outside of the New Jersey statehouse in April 2014 during a rally pushing for state and federal lawmakers to legalize or decriminalize marijuana. His family says that he is a Rastafarian like his father and was fighting for marijuana legalization. Tosh was killed in Jamaica in 1987 during a home invasion robbery.

Rastafarians regard cannabis as a sacrament.

Why exactly are people still being criminalized for marijuana in a country where it’s widely accepted and used? I think it’s far past time for people to stop being convicted of these so-called crimes and opened up to greater opportunities for prosperity and freedom like those living in states like Colorado. This man would not be in his current predicament had it not been for the system in place. He was only fighting for what he believes in, and practicing his spiritual and religious beliefs.
