Isn't marijuana called the wisdom weed? What do you think of all of the reggae singers that claim that marijuana was found on the grave of King Solomon? Is this true?
The most often quoted saying about Ganja in Reggae Music is that "it was found growing on King Solomonís Grave." Since King Solomon was considered the wisest man to roam the earth, Rastas consider Marijuana to be the "Wisdom Weed". This argument is absurd. First of all, where is King Solomonís grave? The Bible mentions his death in both I Kings 11:42, 43b and II Chronicles 9:30, 31b stating that "Solomon reigned in Jerusalem over all Israel forty years. Then he rested with his fathers and was buried in the city of David his father." Besides mentioning that he was buried in the "City of David", the Bible never mentions the exact location of Solomon's final resting place. When someone tells me that Marijuana was found growing on his grave I always ask "Where is his grave?" I doubt that any Rasta knows the exact where-about of his grave much less has ever visited it. I have never seen a picture of Marijuana growing at his grave site. And even if it grew their at one time; SO WHAT? If dandelions grew on his grave would you smoke them also?
