#APART Initiative in ReggaeJahm Community (A Picture & A Reggae Tune)

in ReggaeJAHM2 months ago (edited)

Hello ReggaeJahm community, I hope you are all well, have an excellent weekend, and a Sunday with a special meal that you can then share at #DashOutSunday 😀

Today things are changing, I don't know if it's because of a pandemic or because technology has allowed everything to be much faster, and any information to get everywhere faster... there's something I want to talk about in the #APART initiative... if you don't know it, it's easy to do, just use some of those many images that you capture (even with your cell phone) and present it to us, along with some song that you can relate to the image, here, in the ReggaeJahm community.

In this case I bring the following image, captured with my Huawei Y5 phone:


Image ofmy autorship

Yes, a tattoo of a marijuana leaf on the arm of a person, whom I unwittingly caught...

In this aspect I want to say, I live in COLOMBIA, here is regulated the use of cannabi for personal consumption, one can go walking or be in any place and some person passes by the side smoking a joint calmly, in general it is not badly seen, although many traditionalists or classic families are in disagreement, however, if it is already law for a few years, there is not much that those who do not agree can do.

This plant has been used as medicine for thousands of years by our ancestors. Even today the therapeutic effects it has are recognized, scientifically proven, here in Colombia I usually see many creams and ointments sold everywhere, for medical purposes.

Some years have passed, and its use has even been taken to treat people with some types of cancer, to relieve pain and give a sense of tranquility, in some cases they have been able to recommend it. Some medical colleagues, of course, is not something that is in some medicine protocol, however, you can recognize its good effects on some people.

In the last century, I could say that its use was normalized, and it became public largely because the greatest exponent of Reggae, Bob Marley, spoke it freely. And he not only made Reggae music transcend beyond Jamaica, but also the use of Cannabis for religious purposes. The plant is present in the Rastafari movement from the beginning.

Below I leave a couple of songs that we can relate to the main image of this publication:

Ras Attitude - Marijuana (We Ah Bun) [Official Video 2016]

It’s interesting to see how the herb has become this free to use in many parts of the world.

I’d like to see those marijuana products from Colombia to get some idea of the types of products.

Nice 👍 Mello tunes, never heard of Ras Attitude but that song is smooth, the Sizzla bring back memories.... and now I want a spliff 😆

Hi @dmilliz

Sure, soon I will present some of these products, they are of free sale, in the street you can see them in a normal way. I will be capturing some good images to share, for sure.

Nice 👍 Mello tunes, never heard of Ras Attitude but that song is smooth

There are so many artists that it is almost impossible to know them all, but, little by little, 10 new ones are known and there are already about 100 more new LOl... the endless story.

and now I want a spliff 😆

To the body give what it asks for 😂

@JustinParke here on behalf of the ReggaeJAHM Community.

Colombia used to be such a conservative nation, but times are changing indeed. Obviously this guy in your photo is not trying to hide what he loves in life.

Your post is featured in our JAHMIN Posts Of The Week [November 16th - November 22nd, 2020] Reflection, African Reggae, Ganja Tattoos, And More!!.

Hello @justinparke
In reality, the Colombian population is still very traditional and conservative, especially in Bogotá, but these are particularities of this country. However, here within everything everyone expresses himself as he wants, this is an example.
Thank you for your support.
