Greetings and oceans of peace and blessings to our African collective. I am not a very young man any more, I am moving on in age and as I move on in age, I sometimes turn the pages of my memories, and reflect on so many things, which I have witness with my own eyes as I lived from day to day.
When I write on any subject on this are any Forum, I write for the good purpose of reasoning and Iyafication not for continuos contention and contradictions which bears no fruits. I do enjoy reasoning but I do not Iyajoy when people make fun of intelligent reasonings.
Over and over and over again, I have written on this forum, that herbs were created by the creator for the services of mankind, and all other living creatures. Not just one herb but herbs meaning all the herbs upon the face of this earth.
As for the individual herbs which is called Ganja, there have been much greedy and dishonest practices, which have been manifested among our people, as a result of the industrialization of this product, while it is being prosecuted and persecuted by babywrong. I have known of many children who have been made fatherless and motherless, as a result of false imprisonment and some times even being killed, for this tree which was created by Mother Nature and Father Time.
In these days I have witness 12 and 13 year old children and some time younger, who are dropping out of schools, and being dis respectful to their parents and adults and elders in general, and they can be seen smoking in dangerous places, in little groups, some times they are at places where they can be easily picked up by the police, which generally leave hardships on their parents and the entire family.
There are indeed medicinal values in all of the herbs which mother nature have created, I again say, that I think subtracting the juices from the herbs of the fields, is the best way of using the healing sources of the herbs of the fields.
Again I will say that smoking is not good for human consumption, I myself have proven that, I do not think that I could keep a puff of smoke inside my lungs for ten minutes, may be not even five minutes, because our lungs was created to breathe in fresh air and to let out stall air, and I do thank Mother Nature for this great function for fresh air is the breathe of life.
In boiling Ganja as a tea, it should not be over used or be over boiled on the fire. It should be used with discretion, think of a tea bag and put a small portion in a cup like a tea bag, and pour the boiling water on it and let it steam, then make the best use of it.
In cooking I think it should be used as a seasoning instead of beeing used as the main dish, there is cabbage callaloo, spinage and many other vegetables which should be used as the main dishes.
The story which you have illustrated about the disunity as the money came into the picture have been very common practices coming up the ages and may even be more common today as we speak.
I do hope we can continue this reasoning with some dignity and internal soberness. I have noticed that you did put up a reasonable post trying to find out something about SELF, and some one was ready to twist your words and take your reasoning out of context, that is whatI really do not like. I have written down your e-mail address and I will respond to you soon enough, there is so much to do but so little time.
Again I am sending many oceans of blessings to my collective African People with peace and self determination.
ONE BLACK LOVE ONE BLACK HEART.
Baba Ras Marcus.
