Cannabis Legalization 2016!

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

This years Cannabis Legalization is here! With the 2016 elections over, we find ourselves with a list of new legal states. Probably the biggest of which is California. California makes up more than 1/10th of our population and has a huge influence over the country as a whole. Cannabis Legalization won here by a vote of 4,911,739 Yes to 3,854,453 No. This shows a huge change in attitude since the last time Cannabis legalization was voted on in California. This could be the grain of salt that brings the whole War on Cannabis to a crumbling defeat. With Proposition 64 we will see a lot of new regulations to the California industry and some are less happy about this than others. I can see both sides of this and understand what it means to each, but I also see the great impact this will have on our industry as a whole. We should begin seeing the tides turn towards federal legalization much quicker now than ever before! Other states to legalize today include Nevada, Maine, Massachusetts. This is bringing legalization further east and creating a larger influence in our favor with states that have only considered legalizing CBD and other marijuana and hemp derivatives. Possibly as important as all of this is that Florida OK’ed legalization of Medical Marijuana moving the south east closer to legalizing it further. This plus recent advancements to the Hemp industry in states like North Carolina we really are seeing the national shift move in our favor. Cannabis legalization is what Califari is all about and moving this industry and our freedom forward is our mission!

Bob Frum Jamaica

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

Bob Frum Jamaica refers to the notion that Bob Marley was “John Frum” Jamaica who went to California!

Califari’s beliefs have stemmed in a way that can be compared to the story of “John Frum,” who visited the Vanuatu Islands during the 1950’s and in doing so permanently changed the lives and beliefs of native islanders after what was an American military invasion. “John Frum” was how the natives referred to the members of the American Army, who had temporarily taken over the Vanuatu Islands in order to set up a Military Base.  When US Military Operation was complete and the soldiers left the island the natives could no longer go back to their past ways of thinking once they had encountered new technology and ideals. More can be read here:
The Legend of John Frum

In the 1960’s and 70’s Bob Marley from Jamaica (Bob Frum) came to “Babylon” and brought the ideals of Rastafari through his ever loving and ever lasting music and dropped it on the youth of America with great impact.

Califari is influenced by our interpretations of Rastafari as told through reggae lyrics, legends and beliefs through the lens of our California perspective, that has been hybrid with other influences from the highest level western philosophers, modern and ancient teachings and poetry, as well as, general healthy living practices.

A Word from the legendary Stephen Hawking, Part One

Part one of our Stephen Hawking Meme Moments!

Just in case you have been blinded by science and need to be reminded we are quoting from this brainy fella…

Stephen William Hawking was born 8 January 1942 is an English theoretical physicist, cosmologist, author and Director of Research at the Centre for Theoretical Cosmology within the University of Cambridge. His scientific works include a collaboration with Roger Penrose on gravitational singularity theorems in the framework of general relativity, and the theoretical prediction that black holes emit radiation, often called Hawking radiation. Hawking was the first to set forth a theory of cosmology explained by a union of the general theory of relativity and quantum mechanics. He is a vigorous supporter of the many-worlds interpretation of quantum mechanics.

We are huge fans of this cosmic thinker and will be learning and quoting him as the future unfolds!

Let’s Thank Burton Eubank, a California Firefighter!

Meet our friend, Burton Eubank, a devoted father and a California Firefighter, who is Captain of the Inverness, California Fire Department in Point Reyes California. When he is not out there helping to save lives, he is a school teacher, soccer coach, musician and a trail builder. Burton lives by one simple philosophy, “The best thing someone can do with their lives is to be of service to their community.” Burton rides his bike everywhere he goes so that he leaves a smaller carbon footprint on the planet. Clearly, Burton has the most positive way at looking at life, which we aim to learn from! Positivity attracts positivity, which emits from Burton on a daily basis!

In fact here is a quote from one of Burton’s recent Facebook postings: “has discovered that when not involved in the Rat Race, every day is a great day (Yes, even Mondays)! When work is available, I am happy to go do it. Mostly, it helps to do the kind of work that inspires you. Live with passion”

Here is a moment in time from his life in Northern California!
