In this age, when it is no longer plausible to deny the psychological and physiological benefits of Marijuana, politicians and corporate interests are looking to exploit a potential resource, without redressing the injustices perpetrated against those whom have utilized Marijuana for mental and physical therapy.
In particular, Marijuana has been a fundamental religious/spiritual sacrament to those of the Rastafarian Faith. We, Rastafarians ask the global community for a show of support in our resistance against violations of our religious rights guaranteed to us by The Universal Declaration of Human Rights in hopes that all will eventually secure what is sacred and due to humanity.
Marijuana is a religious Sacrament to the Rastafarian Faith.
We, Rastafarians, demand all international agencies enforcing any policies, resulting in the unlawful imprisonment of any Rastafarian for cultivating, possessing and/or consuming religious sacrament to cease and desist the violations against our inalienable human rights. In demanding the immediate release of all Rastafarians currently enduring political systematic persecution and imprisonment for exercising our religious right.
