#WCW-Mama Ifrica

The Queen has produced such singles such as "Randy" and "Boxers and Stockings" which are a mainstay on local airwaves. Her music shows strong ties to her Rastafarian beliefs as most of her lyrics are laced with these principles. She has also amassed a large following due to the raw nature of her lyrics as she is not afraid to put her own struggles on display as is evident by songs such as "Daddy" and "Below the Waist".  

The Endocannabinoid System-Part One

Our bodies have different systems, like the digestive system or circulatory system. What your elementary schoolbooks may have missed was the ECS.  Probably because it took up until 1964 for the system to be discovered (I think my school books were published before that. Damned public school system).
