Rastafari believe that Haile Selassie, the former emperor of Ethiopia (who passed in 1975 after a coup), is a messianic king who will lead the people in creating a new perfect world known as Zion.
There are two main ceremonies of this religion: “reasoning,” where adherents come together to smoke ganja and have a chat, and “groundation,” where adherents come together to smoke ganja and have a dance. The second one can last days.
Look, I get it. I’ve danced with Mary Jane every day since 2007. The fact that I’m not high right now is probably the biggest problem I’ve had today, but even I think this is a little silly (although not nearly as silly as the 14 more we’ve got in store for you).
If you wanna get high, get high, but don’t build a whole faith out of it and expect us to take it seriously just because Bob Marley was really great.
