Los Marijuanos was formed in Chicago IL. The members are a revolving trio with front man Pony Boy as the anchor to the group. The group quickly became an attraction in the Hispanic, hip hop and marijuana advocate communities. Los Marijuanos made a name for themselves performing at lowrider shows, hemp legalization rallies and festivals. The group released their first album Puro Pleito/Pure Drama on Sept, 24, 1999.
After the success of Pure Drama, Los Marijuanos released their 2001 follow up entitled "The Smoke Out". Once again Los Marijuanos satisfied their audience with tales of all things green. With appearances by Chicago artists Psycho Drama, Triple Darkness, Disco & Vibe and nationally syndicated radio host Mancow Muller "The Smoke Out" became an instant hit.
Los Marijuanos are modern Day Hemp Freedom Fighters. Preaching the legalization vibe everywhere they go! Their music can be defined as "good get high music" by their legions of fans worldwide. Their music is for the patients, the growers, the care givers, hemp believers, smokers and the tokers as well as the weed sellers all over the world.
FLI Agency will be handling the creative development of new materials for Pony Boy and Los Marijuanos. With the graphic design, video production and marketing resources at FLI Agency Freedom Leaf Inc. will be focusing on attracting more artist to further its influence within cannabis culture.
