Faith is greater than science my backfoot
Tell that to the many Rastafari bible conscious brethren who have died of preventable disease
Tell that to Nesta Marley....

I think it's very clear, some people choose roads with consuming the herb that are detrimental to their lives. I don't choose they roads and because they chose that road, don't think everyone follows and has the same tribulations.

Speaking of Ganja, is Rastafari ideology is with a regular state of mind or with a high Ganja state of mind... I'm guessing it's with the holy herb state of mind.

If Rastafari didn't used ganja would Rastafari even be this deep?

It's more like our ancestors to ancestors is in the Ganja to give us a sprituatual strength

Maybe some Rastafarians ignore the system resources because they feel strong in the spirit to know that the system can be a bag of lies

Rastafari is with a Natural and Original state of mind. This cannot be explained through psychedelics. Don't be fooled there have been Rastafari who have chosen not to use ganja or SMOKE ganja since the very beginning. GANJA isn't a Rastafari thing it's a thing of Indian - indentured servant - culture permeating through to the sons of slave plantations who were simultaneously becoming conscious

Garveys Africa- The born Rastafari who doesn't use ganja or use Bible. They CANNOT study I. No stereotypes over here just black redemption and Garvey Garvey. Bob Marley isn't I teacher. Rastafari Marcus Garvey and Mutabaruka are I teacher. All none ganja users

An interesting scientific/anthropology study

Washington State University researchers have found that the more hunter-gatherers smoke cannabis, the less they are infected by intestinal worms. The link suggests that they may unconsciously be, in effect, smoking medical marijuana.

Ed Hagen, a WSU Vancouver anthropologist, explored cannabis use among the Aka foragers to see if people away from the cultural and media influences of Western civilization might use plant toxins medicinally.

"In the same way we have a taste for salt, we might have a taste for psychoactive plant toxins, because these things kill parasites," he said.

In an earlier study, Hagen found that the heavier tobacco smokers among the Aka also had fewer helminths, parasitic intestinal worms.

He cautions, however, that the studies have their limits. While nicotine has been seen killing worms in livestock, that hasn't been directly demonstrated in humans. Cannabis kills worms in a petri dish, but researchers have not shown it killing worms in animals, Hagen said.

The Aka are a "pygmy" people of the Congo basin. As one of the world's last groups of hunter-gatherers, they offer anthropologists a window into a way of life accounting for some 99 percent of human history. They might also offer an alternative hypothesis to explain human drug use.

The prevailing explanation is that recreational drugs "hijack the pleasure centers of the brain," making people feel good. But they also trigger mechanisms that tell us we're consuming something toxic, tasting bitter and making us feel sick.

"So we thought, 'Why would so many people around the world be using plant toxins in this very 'recreational' way?" said Hagen. "If you look at non-human animals, they do the same thing, and what a lot of biologists think is they're doing it to kill parasites."

The issue is significant on at least two fronts, write Hagen and his colleagues, with substance abuse and intestinal helminth infection being "two of the developing world's great health problems." Their study appears in the American Journal of Human Biology.

Researchers are unsure when the Aka might have first smoked cannabis or when it arrived on the continent. It may have come with traders from the Indian subcontinent around the first century A.D., but Hagen and his colleagues say it might not have been smoked until European colonization in the 17th Century.

Hagen surveyed almost all of the nearly 400 adult Aka along the Lobaye River in the Central African Republic and found roughly 70 percent of the men and 6 percent of the women used cannabis. The polling was supported by bioassays of the men that found high enough levels of THCA, a metabolic byproduct of cannabis's active ingredient, to indicate that 68 percent of them had recently smoked.

Stool samples collected from the men to gauge their worm burden found some 95 percent of them were infected with helminths. But those who consumed cannabis had a significantly lower rate of infection. A year after being treated with a commercial antihelmintic, the cannabis users were reinfected with fewer worms.

While the Aka deliberately consume a tea of a local plant, motunga, to fight parasitic infections, they do not think of cannabis or tobacco as medicine, Hagen said. This suggests they are unconsciously using cannabis to ward off parasites, he said.

A little organic ganja smoke is not going hurt us any more than our ancestors were harmed by cooking over a open fire.

Anything done beyond moderation makes us a glutton.

Faith is greater than science because science would not be so popular if people did not put their faith in it.

When we have faith in something we work with it, whether it is scientific or religous. Some may say they don't have a faith but we can see their faith by their works, how they live.

Ganja is great and like fire it can warm us and give us light but if we not careful it can burn us and our lungs.

Water heals us and gives us life yet people have drank too much and died and of course people have drowned. Ganja does not heal or kill in itself, it's people who either use wisely or not.

Oh the C.I.A boots? Like they call a long on 4/5 year illness. German doctor best in the world did nutting. Bob put his fith in HIM. left it too long to see a doctor.
Wrote beautiful freedom songs. That as a white man connected with.

I don't need the Dreadlocks. Some reasonings i read in here are anti-white, but the Jamaican spiritual touches all skin colours we feel it and are given it.

Now herb, i hear a few bredaa saying it doesn't work for them, them addicted, it causes mental problems etc. it doesn't do that to me, i might only smoke half a gram a day. after a long break as i had a testing job. id stick with Landrace though, Lambs Bread, Colly weed etc. Herb has turned totally commercial now. as much as 300 for 14gs of Cali weed.

Whole point of last paragraph was to give my honest opinion on Herb,roots music, can unite the colour of skin ffs.
