The Herbal element (1) - Webmaster's Column

Dubroom Online - Edition November 13, 2007


WWW, November 13 2007 - For many, Reggae and Rasta is related to one thing, and one thing only: marihuana.

Some call it a (soft) drugs, others prefer to speak about the herb. Within Reggae culture we often speak about Lamb's Bread, and we all know that many within our culture prefer to eat the Bread...

Within western Christianity, though, smoking herb is considered to be a major sin against "God". This is why they want to separate themselves from Reggae Culture, as they claim the music is all about the weed anyway.

Whatever the case may be, fact is and shall remain that smoking herb is an accepted form of enjoyment within our Culture and should that be a reason to separate ourselves?

More tomorrow...
