    So with the Forensics Lab closed will the police confirm that it is Jah herb by lighting it up and inhaling it?
    If it looks like marijuana , burns and smells like marijuana is it really marijuana?

    Everytime they catch a Rasta with a green plant they suspect it is marijuana. Like is only ganja that Rastas can grow. That is profiling. smh

    What is the value of the drug? In the present environment of liberalisation, and given all the talks that are going on about decriminalisation of the herb, not-to-mention its legalisation in certain countries, I wouldn’t be surprised if the rastaman was simply reprimanded and discharged. Of course, the “product” will be confiscated and (hopefully) destroyed. One day, of course, the herb will be like an ordinary cigarette. Those who resist that thought are fighting a losing battle. So for now, my rasta brothers, take it easy and resolve to help yourselves by not behaving badly when you take a whiff. Seen?

    Would Jesus condemn weed that his father gave to us as ours. Who are the ones that would do so? Do you suppose they did this for control. Allow yourselves to appreciate the beauty and ability to think as a loving human being, something we have mostly lost over the years. Perhaps, as a people, you could rise above the sad mentality of those who would oppress you and be the leaders you are. Love ya’ll

      “Concern” you too back thinking.

      Can you tell us why weed was Criminalised, I highly (no pun intended) doubt you know the real reason.

      And the young men can’t, through a weed seed in the ground and grow their own!!!!

      I beg to differ at you “concern” these young men are the ones making their way into the dam ghettos to buy weed…these young men are the ones making their way before school on a morning to bring school girls like themselves to have sex with them and get them high before school…these young men are destroying their lives not “those men selling the drug” these young men are worthless because at their age 16/17 are the ones leaving single parents worried and disrespect them…these young men are the ones who turn to sex videos going viral…and the list goes on!! i see it where i reside EVERYDAY!! And i will report to the relevant principal of the school!! So “those men’ are not the ones to be blamed for these “young men” destroying their lives!! Nonsense!!
