I know that all Rastafari people do not smoke herb. That wasnt my point. My point was that if Rastafari people choose to partake in the lamb's bread in their federally sanctioned church, be it by smoking, eating, or drinking, then they will be subjected to the federal law as well. Something would have to give.
Also, if Rastafari did become acknowledged as a 'real' religion, then what would stop the floodgates from opening up with barbarians at the gate?
Ras Marcus' post would be even more true than ever!
The revolution will not be televised my sista!
Not even on youtube.
