VIENNA, VA -- (Marketwire) -- 10/29/12 -- The fight over the potential legalization of marijuana in states across the country is one that continues to rage on, as Colorado becomes the most recent state to face a vote that will affect the future of marijuana in the state.

Voters in Colorado will be up against the decision with an upcoming vote on Amendment 64, which is a measure to legalize marijuana use. In other states across the country, initiatives are spurring interest that would promote the legalization of marijuana.

Regardless of your stance on the hot-button issue, it is one that will become more and more important in the months and years to come.

Rapper Keme Davis, a native of San Jose, California, which has been an area of intense battle in the fight for the legalization of marijuana, has released a new single, which is drawing attention, particularly for its controversial name, "Marijuana Cologne."

California has been home to a number of other artists who sing about marijuana, including, and perhaps most notably, Snoop Dogg, or as he is recently known, Snoop Lion.

Davis, along with his partner, Chaz, who hails from Oakland, California, hope to not only draw fans with their artistic abilities, but also reach people with their message. To the rappers, the legalization of marijuana is one of the most critical issues of our time, and they believe their music has the ability to become a representative anthem for the marijuana culture that exists not only in California, but across the country.

"Our newest song and online promotion of the song aren't just about marijuana; it's about a culture that marijuana represents," said Keme. "All over Oakland, and California there are marijuana shops, where this culture is represented, and we see this song as the song that will come to symbolize the culture, and the legal issues that are taking place not only in California, but across the country."

"We're seeing people rise up in support of marijuana, and this is the type of song that can represent that movement," said Keme's rapping partner, Chaz. "We envision this song being played in marijuana shops across the country, as the movement takes hold and more people become supportive of the legalization of marijuana."

The rappers believe that they are a part of what they see as a grassroots movement to legalize marijuana, and make it an accepted part of the mainstream culture. They hope with their creative endeavors, they will continue to influence the movement across the country, as more states face important votes about the legalization of marijuana.
