Same bracelets save lives. They announce you’re allergic to some shit that doctors might accidentally give you to save your life. And some bracelets—like these little leather and alloy joints sent to us by TrendyBracelets.biz—announce a love for weed. Much cooler than allergy bracelets or hospital patient-identification tags, right? Notice the red, gold and green colors on these Rasta bracelets? You might know that plenty of stoners, not to mention Rastas, rock these colors. When we see these colors together we even smell weed. But what’s the history on these colors and why do stoners and Rastas dig ‘em so much? Rastafari is an Abrahamic religion that started in Jamaica during the 1930s. It stemmed from the coronation of Haile Selassie I as Emperor of Ethiopia in 1930. The Rasta colors red, gold and green are taken from the Ethiopian flag. It’s said that the green stands for the fertile land and lush greenery of the African continent. But, we like to think that it stands for really good pot. The yellow represents the sunshine of the African land (used to grow really good weed) and the red symbolizes the blood shed by it’s people in defending the country. One reason why stoners identify with these colors is because they encompass the Rastafari way of life. And that lifestyle involves the spiritual use of cannabis of course. What’s not to like about that? Plus stoners dig rockin’ the red, gold and green because like many of the Rastas who wear ‘em, they broadcast a religious devotion and deep appreciation for weed. We have three hand-crafted Rasta bracelets to kick down. One size to fits most men and women. They’re 0.5″ wide and 6 cm in diameter and can be adjusted to anywhere between 15-20 cm. They weight just 12 grams. We’ll also sweeten the pot and toss in a pack of STUFF STONERS LIKE ROLLING PAPERS and STICKERS. HOW TO ENTER:
