FED-EXISTENTIAL DREAD 

FED-EXISTENTIAL DREAD

FedEx, Memphis colossus of distribution, was charged with a discrimination suit after firing seven employees who refused to cut off their dreadlocks. The workers, who are members of the Rastafarian religion and believe that their dreadlocks are a symbol of unity with their creator, have invoked the Civil Rights Act of 1964, which states that a person may not be discriminated against because of sincerely held religious beliefs. Whether or not the suit will lead to the liberal use of cannabis and cannabis products by Rastafarian pilots is still up in the air.
