Passing the sacrament

Young Rastafarians pass their sacrament.

For Rastas, smoking cannabis, usually known as healing of the nation, ganja, or herb... is a spiritual act, often accompanied by Bible study; they consider it a sacrament that cleans the body and mind, heals the soul, exalts the consciousness, facilitates peacefulness, brings pleasure, and brings them closer to Jah [God]. The burning of the herb is often said to be essential "for it will sting in the hearts of those that promote and perform evil and wrongs." (h/t: Weird Universe)
