LEGALIZE IT

How can the meeting of two young men who sold t-shirts and tape cassettes to make a living in the center of Rio be the start of one of the most popular Brazilian bands of the 1990’s? LEGALIZE JÁ tells about this transformative moment in the lives of Marcelo – later known as Marcelo D2 – and Skunk, who together became Planet Hemp.
