It is common in other cultures for parents to work out some type of exchange of goods to arrange marriages. Though this is not practiced in the United States, a Jamaican farmer has been going hard trying to negotiate a deal with President Obama for his teenage daughter Malia. The offer is for Malia to marry his son. A Kenyan lawyer has already made an offer of 50 cows and other livestock to President Obama for Malia, but Roy Chambers. has upped the ante, offering the president of the United States a 10-acre marijuana farm for his daughter’s hand in marriage.
Chambers told 18 Karat Reggae in an interview, “I tried to approach President Obama with my offer while he was in Jamaica a few monthsago but the security prevented me. I have sent him a regular mail to the white house and also an email so I hope he will reply soon.” It is Chambers’ intent for the 17-year-old Malia to marry his 1-year-old son because they “would make a perfect couple and have a perfect family.”
As to the offer of the marijuana farm, Chambers says, “My marijuana farm is my most valuable possession but am willing to give it to President Obama in exchange for his beautiful daughter to marry my son.” Of course, the president has not responded to this request and probably never will, but you never know. A great man once said, “Shoot your shot.” Roy Chambers has chucked a shot from the other side of the court hoping it will get in the hoop.
