Meet the incredible Wanda James, the only black woman who owns a legal weed dispensary in Colorado. And after you meet her, meet her brother, Rick, who was thrown in jail for years for possession of marijuana.

Wanda James describes herself and her husband, Scott Durrah, as "serial entrepreneurs." They've owned restaurants, consulting companies, and they are the first African American dispensary owners in Colorado. However, the goal is more than just bringing pot to the people. In the mid-nineties, James became viscerally aware of the issues surrounding cannabis and the arrest of young black men when her brother was sentenced to 10 years for possession at the age of 17.

"The reason why my husband and I are in this industry is to bring light and awareness to the issues surrounding social justice," she says in this documentary produced by Kelly Loudenberg for The Atlantic's American Dreams series. "We have massive issues with the people who are arrested that look like us for simple possession." James and Durrah's dispensary is set to open at the end of 2015, and they also plan to open a marijuana cooking school next door.

Why do blacks have to get into an mj business? I thought that the purpose of this 6,000 year period was to gather the 144,000 elect and end the cycle (as described in Black Roots Science)? What does mj have to do with that? Isn't our purpose as Israelites (blacks in America) greater in universal scale than some tiny mj business? Black Roots aka afrknroots dedicated his time to give us a detailed history and prophesy about the future of the world. Why are we sleeping on it?

Although marijuana is a plant which has medicinal purposes, such as treatment for glaucoma, anesthetic etc., and Black Roots is also a plant, used for:


Black root is a plant. It grows in the US and Canada and has a bitter and nauseating taste. People use the underground stem (rhizome) and the root as medicine.

Black root is used for ongoing constipation and disorders of the liver and gallbladder. It is also used to cause vomiting.

http://www.webmd.com/vitamins-supplements/ingredientmono-796-black root.aspx?activeingredientid=796&activeingredientname=black root


... is the Black Root plant associated in any way with the religion of Black Roots Science, just curious?

Next question, is the leader of Black Roots Science available and still going with this ideology? I ask because of the following:


Around 2004, the author of Blackroots Science, seeking to bring ancient knowledge out to fellow Muurs, began posting the information on online forums such as Destee under pseudonyms such as, 'INTRIG', 'afrknroots' and 'Blackroots'/'blkroots'. For the past 6,000 years, much of the information in Blackroots Science has only been taught in secret oral & initiation traditions in certain tribes of Ethiopia (aka Africa). One of those tribes is the author's tribe of Batswana. Brother Afrknroots, a griot in his tribe, was given permission to make the information public in written form as now is the time Muurians everywhere must remember their true selves as this 6,000 year cycle of self-forgetfulness winds to a close.

We are in a new era. Those facts give us evidence we can reach the Melanin Tipping Point just by telling the truth. The Melanin Tipping Point is the point at which we go from healing to healed. Mchakato wa Uponyaji is the process of healing. Melanin Is Worth More Than Gold. That fact puts us in a different state mentally. It affects different people differently. What is certain is the Ubuntu paradigm is returning.
Melanin is worth more than gold. The Red, Black and Green is 100 years old. The Afric, official currency of the United States of Africa is worth over $2.

Hello Moon Child, it's been a few years since we talked. Please let me know if you can do my chart for me, thank you. I'm in transition and really could help with some interpretations.
