How this religion came to be: On the island of jamaica a bunch of christians came together around a camp fire. Not having any wood to burn they unknowingly threw massive amounts of weed aka(ganja, hemp, mary jane)into the flame. The high that followed lasted for days, and days and days. At this time period, there was a restaurant called Zion. Being that they had the munchies for a month, they ate massive amounts of food at Zion's. The favorite menu item was jahfries. However, massive constipation soon followed the ingestion of said item. The only cure for this type of constipation was to dig JahRoots up out of the ground. Thus, Rastafarians around the world love jah roots, and wish to get to Zion, where jahfries are abundant.
Me and my Rastafarian acquaintance are on our way to Zion. Brrrraaap!
