Jamaican Ganja Business {video}


Jamaica’s first medicinal marijuana company, Medicanja, launched this year against a backdrop of reinvigorated debate around ganja law reform among leading policymakers. The renowned Jamaican scientist Dr. Henry Lowe, a leader in THC studies for medical purposes, is running the company with the University of West Indies and the University of Technology jointly funding the facility. In addition to studying the scientific benefits of marijuana, Dr. Lowe says the company will produce CBD-based medical products, which fall under legally accepted medicinal use of the ganja plant. Lowe says the plant extract can be used to treat psychosis and severe pain, as well as mid-life crises in men.

Throwback Video Bob Marley New Zealand Interview 1979

Yes, well, I see myself as a revolutionary. You cant get any help, and I don’t take any bribe from anyone, I fight it single handed – with music! Rasta is the future – You see? Yes, rasta is the future, that’s good…

Excellent Interview from the Great Bob Marley

Bob: Herbs a plant. Why these people that wants to do so much good for everyone calling themselves governments and this and that. Why they say you must not use the herb? You say um um we find that you mustn’t use it because IT MAKES YOU REBEL..AGAINS T WHAT? AGAINST MEN WHO ARE SCRAVEN/CRAVEING (NOT SURE)Dem(they) crave for material things to captivate your mind and want to tell you, you have to work and put you on pension and THEY keep it all. So herb make you look upon yourself instead of you wanting to work for the man (greedy corrupt governments) AND YOU WANT TO BE ONE OF THE MAN TOO! Not in the sense of how him is but in the sense of why you have to bow to these things.

The media part: Bob: MEDIA! As If I ran(own) a newspaper I would do allot of interviews, because what I want to say would get across. If/when I talk to someone it goes to someone and they inherited to fit their business, and if too militant and they try for to spread a type of propaganda I mean media is media

Bob said That the government basically created a false reality in that we have to work, in order to get pension, health care, because they planted a seed of greed within us so we dwell on materialistic things. While the government at the end takes everything. Herb makes you meditate and realize life and then makes you rebel! The media are just propaganda if you own a media outlet you would use it to get your own ideas to influence the news.

Bob Marley Is Blamed For Teenage Drug Use In Kerala, India

Bob Marley has been dead for almost 33 years, but it appears police in Kerala, India are putting the blame on the late reggae singer, when it comes to teenage drug use.

 

A report from the The Times of India states that police in Kerala have made attempts to make the city safer by seizing marijuana and other recreational drugs during raids. But, along with drugs, police have confiscated anything that has an image of the marijuana plant, as well as anything that has an image of Bob Marley. This includes T-shirts; bumper stickers; key chains; and bracelets.

Marley fans know that he was a proponent of the drug, and a report from The Inquisitr states that he even used it during Bible discussions. But some Kerala residents believe that Marley should not be brought up, when it comes to raising awareness about drug use amongst teens in India.

“Please keep Bob Marley away from the issue,” said one person, who was listed as Kevin in the report.

Kevin added that he doesn’t find marijuana symbols “attractive.”

“If you like such tees, wear it in a country where marijuana is legalized,” he said. “You don’t have to show the world that you are smoking up and that’s why you are so cool. It’s a stupid thing to do.”

NG Suhruth Kumar, a civil police officer, told Indian magazine Open that they “have caught around 200 students for using ganja.” And a lot of them had something related to the reggae icon, when they were caught.

“Most of them had Bob Marley songs on their cell phones, and stickers of marijuana leaves on their bikes. These children are attracted to drugs by Bob Marley songs,” Kumar said.

Police in Thrissur and Thiruvananthapuram have raided any shops that sell T-shirts, key chains, and bracelets that feature Bob Marley. One unnamed street vendor in Thrissur didn’t know who Marley was, but he has noticed that T-shirts with an image of the late reggae singer have been a “huge demand” for teenagers.

“I have been selling T-shirts for more than 15 years,” he said. “I never knew that this man is trouble, and that selling such T-shirts is a crime.”

He has temporarily closed his shop out of fear of being cited by police under Section 3 (1) Young Persons (Harmful Publication) Act of 1956, which prevents the “the dissemination of certain publications harmful to young persons.”

Activist and filmmaker KP Sashi calls the whole thing “ridiculous.”

“If the police want to fight marijuana dealers, they should do it more smartly,” Sashi said. “Chasing Bob Marley lovers in disguise in a drive against drugs is nothing short of cultural policing. These cops don’t know anything about Bob Marley; they think that he was only a guy who promoted drugs.”

And even though this issue has received plenty of criticism, Suhruth Kumar said police won’t drop their belief that Marley is part of the marijuana problem.

“Bob Marley might be a good musician, but it is indeed true that the drug mafia is using him as an idol to sell their products,” he said. “When we interrogated them, we understood that many of these youngsters addicted to drugs are Bob Marley fans. His song, Ganja Gun, has been found on the mobile phones of several of these young people.”

Some students in Fort Kochi have launched a “Save Bob Marley” movement. One student, Anuraj K, said that none of the students in the area are “addicted to drugs” because of Bob Marley.

“We see his music in connection with the call for freedom of the oppressed, and not with the promotion of drugs,” he said.

K added that he plans on wearing a Bob Marley T-shirt every day in protest against the police.

Meanwhile In Australia(pics)

Twin sisters share same BOYFRIEND … Double OR Nothing

Twin sisters from Australia have taken their sisterly bond to the extreme by spending £150,000 on cosmetic surgery to look identical.

The 28-year-old women Anna and Lucy DeCinque from Perth, have had countless cosmetic procedures from lip fillers to breast implants and tattooed eyebrows in a quest to look exactly the same.

From their matching treatments to their identical exercise routines, the brunettes are devoted to being duplicates and never stray from each others’ sight for more than a few moments.

The sisters are so close that they share a phone, a car, a job and a Facebook account. They even share the same bed – and boyfriend.

“We’re dating one boy at the moment,” says Anna. “There are three people in our relationship. We’re sharing.”

“It’s not really weird to us,” explains Lucy. “We have one boyfriend and all three of us share the same bed.

“For guys, in their hearts and dreams, they want two girlfriends.

“We have the same taste in everything, so obviously we’re going to like the same boy too.

“We’re all together when we have sex, and if we like the same guy, so be it.”

For the last two years, Anna and Lucy have been sharing the same double bed – and for the last twelve months, they have been dating the same guy.

The 4ft 10in twins, who live at home with their mum Jeanna, 71, have dated separate boyfriends before, but they have always been best friends or brothers.

Lucy says: “Every date had to be a double date. It’s always double or nothing.”

From an early age Anna and Lucy were inseparable.

The sisters, born one minute apart, attended the same nursery, primary and secondary school, before enrolling on a beauty course at college – together.

At home, in the sun-soaked suburbs of Perth, the sisters were doted on by their mum Jeanna and their dad Luigi, who passed away four years ago, aged 58.

Lucy says: “Our mum has always been able to tell us apart. But, our dad, not so much.

“He would say, ‘Which one are you?'”

The only way to tell the twins apart is by slight markings on the girls’ faces – the small mole on Lucy’s cheek and a scar on Anna’s forehead.

But, those slight differences go unseen by most – including ex-boyfriends.

Lucy says: “We’ve had fun, especially when we were younger.

“We would swap boyfriends, if we were bored.

“Like, even on the telephone, if I didn’t want to talk to my boyfriend, Anna would take the phone and pretend to be me.

“We would play games like that, and the other person never realised.

“We’ve settled down a bit now.”

Snake eats crocodile in Queensland lake, Australia

A snake has eaten a crocodile in an epic duel captured by onlookers at a Queensland lake. The whopper python took on the croc at Lake Moondarra, near Mount Isa, on Sunday. A Mount Isa woman, Tiffany Corlis, was having breakfast nearby when canoeists racing on the lake alerted her about the endurance battle playing out nearby. She grabbed her camera and took a series of shots that documented the enormous snake’s assault on the much smaller croc, which was about a metre long. By the time Corlis started watching, the python had already coiled its body around the crocodile and was beginning to strangle it. “[The crocodile] was fighting at the start, so it was trying to keep its head out of water and survive,” she told ABC North West Queensland Radio on Monday. But as the morning sort of progressed, you could tell that both of them were getting a little weaker. “Finally, the croc sort of gave in and the snake had uncoiled for a little while and had a brief break and then actually started to consume the crocodile.” Corlis said it was amazing to witness. “It was just unbelievable,” she said. “We were sort of thinking that the snake had bitten off a little more than it could chew. “But it did. It actually ate the crocodile.” The aftermath showed the overstuffed snake lying still, where presumably it stayed for some time as it digested its dinner. “When you actually looked at the snake, you could actually see the crocodile’s ridges, legs and everything inside its belly,” Corlis said.
