For those of you who don't know the word Entheogen, they refer to psychedelic plants; plants which expand the mind.
I already understand that Cannabis is widely accepted in Rastafari.
But I thought this would be worthy of discussion, because in previous posts I have learned that Garveys Africa is against their use, aside from Cannabis, altogether yet in a recent discussion where I recommended San Pedro as a treatment for addiction, JAH child not only agreed with their use, but recommended the use of Magic Mushrooms to help with their addiction, too or instead of.
Personally, it is to my understanding that it is very possible to reach these states, eventually without the use of these plants. However, aside from the obvious difference in intensity, why would ones encourage using Cannabis and deny the other mind expanding plants from around the world?
The way I see it, Cannabis obviously could not survive long term in the Mexican Desert, so JAH created a cactus there instead, which is known as Peyote. It's use most definitely IS spiritual. Why would ones not accept these (aside from the differing intensity), because they are of the same class of plants, ie sacred plants used to expand the mind?
All the best,
