Former RCA Reggae Artist Denroy Morgan Busted for 300 Pounds of Pot!

Former RCA Reggae Artist Denroy Morgan really loves some weed.

For real, dude loves it so much he had to surround himself by the lady Mary Jane.

As reported by Gawker, 80’s reggae sensation Denroy Morgan was recently pulled over in the Bronx borough of New York City on Wednesday, Sept. 14, with 25 pounds of medicated lettuce in his trunk! Good Lawd!

Denroy either has a serious case of glaucoma or he literally loves to smoke and ride while bumpin his Bob Marley tapes!

He drove straight through a stoplight without wearing his seatbelt which is what caused the cops to pull him over.

It gets worse for our Rastafarian brother.

Upon further investigation, the officers decided to search Morgan’s house, where they found 310 more pounds of marijuana, which is street valued between  $140,000 to $350,000!

Morgan emigrated from Jamaica to the US in 1965 to be a music star.

He was the first reggae artist signed to RCA in ’84.

I guess when the music money runs dry you still gotta hustle right?

Mr. Morgan is currently in police custody.

Morgan is also the father of  reggae/soul group Morgan Heritage.
