"The year 2021 began with heavy regret in the marijuana scene in Brazil, with the news of the death of Priest Antônio Luiz Madchioni, affectionately known as “Padre Ticão.” His strong religious and social leadership gained prominence in the Parish of São Francisco de Assis, located in Ermelino Matarazzo, in the east side of São Paulo. Since 1982, the priest had been working on defending the poorest population and seeking to reduce social inequalities, having been engaged, in recent years, in defending the use of marijuana. This vanguard positioning was motivated by a shortage envisioned in the Catholic Church in facing the needs of the present times, especially with regard to actions to improve the quality of life and dignity of the population. In fact, the use of marijuana in Brazil was disseminated, mainly, by the enslaved. Its prohibition was strongly marked by racism and functioned as a persecutor of cultures, customs, and traditions that originated in Africa, arising a few decades after the abolition of slavery (1888). In this way, it was possible to continue the practices of segregation and social exclusion established in the country since colonialism. The dominant white elite was then able to perpetuate its power, maintaining hegemony over the less favored classes under the pretext of the War on Drugs." https://chacruna.net/marijuana_diversity_decriminalization/

In the beginning of all things, wisdom and knowledge were with the animals; for Tirawa, the One Above, did not speak directly to man. He sent certain animals to tell men that he showed himself through the beasts, and that from them, and from the stars and the sun and the moon, man should learn. Tirawa spoke to man through his works. - Chief Letakots-Lesa, Pawnee Tribe, c.1904
