In Response To: Re: ganja and Sacrament . (MadMakDread)
Give Thanks MadMakDread for the Mutabaruka lyrics.
I never knew that was his view on the topic.
I do feel that NOT everyone NEEDS it. That's not my point. But why the ones who claim to feel helped with the vibes of this planted should be condemned by that? Personally, I feel Ganja is a gift JAH sent to say : Cool down and learn with nature. If everybody is different and every person has a way (TAO), why should I feel bad about mine if that doen's disrespect anybody?
Why I should feel bad about using a plant that makes me feel better with and so with the universe/youniverse? I was a very sick youth mentally and spiritually; in my experience, GANJA GOT ME OUT OF THA HANDS OF BABYLON AND GAVE ME BACK MY IDENTITY. WILL I NEED IT ALL MY LIFE? MAYBE YES, MAYBE NOT. BUT I DON'T FEEL ENSLAVED, I FEEL RELEASED. MENTALLY ,SPIRITUALLY AND PHISICALLY THIS IS MY HEALING.
Give thanks for the reasonings. People don't have to agree, but should respect the right for differences (unless this is going into other people's lifes and rights.

*MadMakDread, do you have a personal experience with Ganja? Was it helpful any time? Because your view look like you had a bad experience with that!
Ras-pect and Love.
