    In a world that was proud of hard work, strong families, close-knit communities, and our faith in the Highest–Almighty, too many of us now tend to worship self-indulgence and consumption.
    And it was written–Up in the book of life.
    That a man shall….endure forever more.
    The mainstream European media often highlights an opinion that the Rastafarian culture is 1- based upon having a radical Afro-centric view on everything and having a particular hairstyle and the usage of cannabis. They blindly promote these false absolute images of what the faith represent and so we have to say clearly this is not Rastafarian. We have to put things into context and understand that there are revelations around all this. When these people promote these images—in their media about Rastafarians, they’re opening a critical window—they’re centralizing the Rastafarian belief. Centralization is a racist process, and so we must work to change the mentality……….Rastafari is the natural manifestations of what’s within basically–a divine conception of heart and soul. A message to our precious youth out there–there is NO NEED TO USE CANNABIS in embracing this culture….

    And to think January 1st Cannabis was made legal in California for recreational use, not to mention those countries who have it on the table to legallise. Its being dispensed not only in shops but in pharmacies with child proof caps. And its being taxed to by government…
