"Rastafari not a culture, it's a reality..."

Bob Marley & Cannabis

Kaya, was Bob Marley & The Wailers' twelfth studio album. Kaya, which is the Jamaican word for  cannabis, is a huge part of Bob Marley's beliefs in the Rastafari movement. Cannabis, also commonly known as herb or marijuana, was so strongly used by the Rasta people that it became an iconic part of the religion and most of its followers. "How can a plant created by God, be made illegal by humans" he followed up and questioned that if why God, who created all plants, is a criminal too? Many people, when they think of Bob Marley, they think of cannabis and they should because he believed as a faithful practice and even today is greatly embraced by the Rastafari religion. Considered as the tree of life, as stated in the Bible, many Rastafari come together and smoke cannabis in order to find the truth and seek clear answers while discussing life during these sessions. Most Rastafari, including Bob Marley, but not all use marijuana regularly as a part of their faith. Bob Marley believed that this herb was a way to understand life, god and the universe as a whole but a way to "take the wool from the eyes, to see clearly", and some even rub the ash of the smoked plant on their skin as a part of the practice. "When you smoke the herb, it reveals you to yourself."
