KUSH: “Marijuana” The Sacrament of The Rastafarian Church”

Rastafarians and Marijuana.

"…Another thing I find really interesting about weed is how through the smoking of it, or the trying to acquire it, brings together people of different classes, backgrounds, cultures. And in bringing those people together there’s an exchange of ideas, and through that exchange other things happen."

Marijuana cheaper and easier to get than ever


Billions of dollars have been put towards nipping the drug-trade in the bud, yet the ease of obtaining marijuana and its potency have bloomed, while its price has dropped, according to a prominent group lobbying for cannabis legalization.

A new report by the Stop the Violence BC coalition of health, academic and justice experts will be released today to demonstrate the result of current anti-drug policy.

It uses government-funded data to show that cannabis trends are thriving, despite decades of huge cash injections to law enforcement agencies in both Canada and the U.S.

“If the goal is to reduce the availability of marijuana, it’s clearly been a dramatic failure,” said Dr. Evan Wood, a founding member of the coalition and director at the BC Centre for Excellence in HIV-AIDS.

“By every metric, the government’s own data has shown this policy has clearly not achieved its stated objective.”

The report, called “How not to protect community health and safety,” is being released as the federal Conservatives’ omnibus crime bill — which toughens penalties for growing and possessing pot — heads towards speedy passage into law.

The coalition contends the proposed measures continue to propel policy in the wrong direction, when what the government should be doing is regulating and taxing cannabis under a comprehensive public health framework.

Asked for reaction to the report, a spokeswoman for the federal justice minister was terse.

“Our government has no intention to decriminalize or legalize marijuana,” said Julie Di Mambro in an email.

Arrests and cannabis seizures soared when anti-drug funding jumped, according to available data presented in the report, but none of the other anticipated impacts materialized.

Since 2007, the majority of at least $260 million in funding against drugs from Ottawa has been allocated to policing. Between 1990 to 2009, arrests have increased by 70 per cent.

Meanwhile, the parallel U.S. budget has increased from $1.5 billion in 1981 to $18 billion in 2002.

Arrests jumped there by 160 per cent between 1990 and 2009, while pot seizures more than quadrupled.

But at the same time, prevalence of cannabis use rose.

The Canadian Alcohol and Drug Use Monitoring Survey showed 27 per cent of B.C. youth between 15 and 24 smoked weed at least once in the previous year.

Herbalist Farmer


I wish I was 21 and living in California or Colorado. The only future I’m looking to right now is growing good weed. Good enough to win the Cannabis Cup at least once. Who knows, I may start liking college.
