Goodbye Mr. Nice.....




Howard was a legend...a valued activist and key player in the world of Cannabis. During the mid 1980's Howard Marks had forty-three aliases, eighty-nine phone lines and owned twenty-five companies trading throughout the world. At the height of his career he was smuggling consignments of up to thirty tons of marijuana and his business involved cutting deals with the Japanese Yakuza, the New York mafia and Colombian Cannabis suppliers. Towards the end of his life Howard became heavily involved with Cannabis breeding...establishing the world famous MR NICE Seedbank along with his good friend Shantibaba and later still worked alongside Shantibaba and Resin Seeds forming CBD Crew who are pionerring some of the most important CBD rich strains in the world today.



We met Howard and shared a spliff on a few occasions at various expos and events. For living such a colourful and exciting, albeit dangerous life we found him to be a kind, humble gentleman that had time for anyone and, wether you agree with his life or not, fully deserved his alias MR NICE.

On Sunday 10th April Howard passed away peacefully in his bed surrounded by his family. We salute you Mr. easy....your passion and work will continue and one day when Cannabis is socially accepted by all we will remember you as the legend that sowed the seed.
