Happy 420 from oki yo!

There’s a lot of Jamaican and Rastafarian imagery here, for some reason. The best is the ubiquitous weed-leaf car air freshener, often seen in cars with little kids in the backseat or little old ladies in the driver’s seat.

It’s so strange, because the drug itself is not ubiquitous at all. People here stay away, because apparently the punishment for smoking — not even selling — marijuana is three years in prison.

Here’s a rad song by an Okinawan reggae group:

U-dou & Platy
