Marley grew up in a small, lower class household in Edgewater, Colorado. Throughout his childhood, Marley looked up to his father, who was a registered Marijuana grower, everyday after school, Marley would come home and go straight to the small grow house that was in their backyard. Marley could sit for hours, taking in the smell, looking at and observing the different plants and their growth patterns. His father would teach him about the Marijuana plant growth cycles, their germination and flowering periods, different strains and how to genetically pair them, and their effects. Midway through High school, Marley became so enveloped in the wonders of cannabis, that he decided to drop out of school and take over his fathers business. Marley spent the 5 years growing and cultivating cannabis and stocking up a huge collection. In 2012, Colorado passed amendment 64, officially making Marijuana legal for recreational and Medicinal use. This is when Marley went from grower, to user. He quickly developped his own strains of cannabis that he personally like more than the others, and perfected his strains. One day, while smoking a few blunts in the morning, Marley was browsing the internet and found an article about places where marijuana grows freely, one of these places was Chernarus. Marley has always wanted to see what the difference between unaltered, naturally grown Weed, and indoor grown, geneticaly altered Weed. He set out a week later, and was not dissapointed, he found that these outdoor, naturally grown plants are for the most part, higher quality than indoor, artificial climate produced weed. After spending some time there, he decided he wanted to head back, but couldn't, seeing as all flights in and out of the country were grounded, due to the spread of the infection. Marley was forced to flee into the forest, seeing as the chaos was getting out of hand.
