A rasta or rastafarian is someone who follows the religion of Rastafarianism.

There are some "poser" rastas, that only call themselves rastas, so that they can dread their hair and smoke weed.

The smoking of weed is considered a way of speaking to their god, Jah. Rastafarians do read and follow the bible, and they helped shape Jamaica's people nowadays.
A true rastafarian praises Jah with all his might.
