Rastas & Religious Freedom
understand there was case this year where a Rastafarian
man, a user of cannabis, got of receiving a sentence
as he successfully argued that cannabis use was part
of the rastafarian culture. Are you aware of this case
and if so could you send me information on this case
and/or direct me to a web site/journal with this case
ask this question from a personnel policy perspective
as a Human Resources Practitioner.
the Rastafarian claiming religious exemption from cannabis
laws, I suggest you consult the news cuttings library
at http://www.mapinc.org. They collect and catalog press
cuttings on drugs issues from around the world, and
if the case was covered in the UK (or US) press, they
would be pretty sure to have the article, or articles,
case was not one in which we were professionally involved.
