See 2010 Global Marijuana March map. Georgetown: Ras Simeon guyanarastafaricouncil204(at) 592-615-0523.


"The media in Guyana reporting that a Rastafarian group in Guyana staged a small demonstration near the country's Home Affairs Ministry on Thursday [May 6]. The rastas had earlier been prevented by police from marching through the streets of the capital, Georgetown."
The Guyana Rastafari Council says it will join a worldwide march next month to urge countries like Guyana, where the use of the ‘holy herb’ in small amounts is a crime, to change their laws. ... Vice President of the Guyana Rastafari Council, Ras Simeon, said that the use of certain amounts of marijuana should be allowed in Guyana, so that the Rastafarian community may have free use of its “holy herb”. He said that the current policies of Guyana regarding the issue are seen by the religious sect as “an infringement of ethnic rights”. “We have made a petition to Parliament for them to review the narcotics laws so that we, as Rastafarians, may be able to enjoy the sacramental use of the ‘holy herb,’ and so that the medical uses of marijuana can be administered freely to those who need it,” Simeon said. He added that Rastafarian communities worldwide will participate in a grand ‘Ganja March,’ from May 1 to May 8, to petition governments to decriminalise the use of up to one ounce of the drug. “We are a registered organisation and we deserve free access to the ‘holy herb’ to give us spiritual strengthening and to allow the free practice of our culture,” the vice president said.
