I am White. Can I Become Rastafari?
So I can claim smoking pot is a requirement of my religion.

Why doesn't someone just claim that God appeared to them and told them to smoke pot in order to reach the "spirit realm"? Then all potheads can claim they believe that guy is telling the truth, that he is a "prophet", and wallah - pot through freedom of religion!

Sure. They'll arrest you at first, but if other religions could make a break away run for the mainstream after a rocky start, so could this one.

I mean, the "prophet" doesn't need to claim they ARE God or anything (that would turn the masses away), just that they were specifically told by God to smoke dope and love people.

The rich kids in mountain towns are called trustafarians. Because they live off their trust funds sit around drink and do drugs.
One guy in Telluride took it to a new level. His name is Rasta Stevie. He has blond dreads down to his ass. Reeks of patchouli, sells some good weed, and was even a town council member.

One winter he decided to go to Jamaica, he got his ass kicked really bad.

Yes you can, white has nothing to do with it and you can claim that smoking pot is part of your religion. Do some research.

 Quoting: Me114

They believe that Jesus was just one of the couple of incarnations of God here on earth. The latest incarnation was Haile Selassie Makonnen. So, if I believed that I'd also have to believe David Koresh (among the masses that would line up along side him).

They also believe Jesus' message got distorted by the Babylon System - that I FULLY agree with.

Re: I am White. Can I Become Rastafari?
Yes you can be white and rastafarian. It's a religion... ya know? So if you believe in the precepts of the religion, rastafari in this case, you will be rastafarian.

Rasta Stevie got his ass beat because he did the wrong thing at the wrong time. Those people in Jamaica are poor, and they will beat and rob blacks from America too. Dude's a throw down skier, shoulda stayed in Telluride.

I know a white rasta. Real deal too. All religious,reads his scriptures, Haille Sallasi I and all that. Smokes a ton of weed too.

For the most part, if you know what you're doing, the constitution protects you to the point where you have to be a complete moron to end up in jail for the shit.

Never EVER consent to search. If you get pulled and they wanna search you, "NO I do NOT consent to search". If they say they'll get the dog, it's still no. NO NO NO!!! The dogs are wrong half the time and if they do search your car after you've refused because of the dog alerting, you can still get it thrown out.

Just be smart and you'll be ok, although with your thread title and OP it might be too late for 'smart".

Re: I am White. Can I Become Rastafari?
If you believe in most of this, then yes.. even if you're white you can be Rasta but man you'd have to INDULGE yourself in this culture and be very familiar with it:

The Rastafari movement (also known as Rastafari or simply Rasta) is a monotheistic, Abrahamic, new religious movement[1] that accepts Haile Selassie I, the former Emperor of Ethiopia, as the incarnation of God, called Jah[2] or Jah Rastafari. Haile Selassie is also seen as part of the Holy Trinity and as the returned messiah promised in the Bible.

Other characteristics of Rastafari include the spiritual use of cannabis,[3][4] rejection of western society (called "Babylon"), and various Afrocentric social and political aspirations,[3][5] such as the teachings of Jamaican publicist, organizer, and black separatist Marcus Garvey (also often regarded as a prophet), whose political and cultural vision helped inspire Leonard Howell to develop the foundations of this new world view. The Rastafari movement predominantly emerged in Jamaica in the 20th century, and it proclaims Africa (also "Zion") as the original place where the body of the first man was found, which established independency among blacks.
