Photographer's Note

The province of Aceh is the main supplier of marihuana to all Indonesia. During the conflict with the government, prior to the tsunami, "ganja" was very common not only for smoking but also as a spice in food. After the tsunami when a peace agreement was reached the expansionist central government of Java decided to introduce sharia law banning all kind of drugs as well as alcohol. Of course the most affected by the sharia law have been women. But is well known that that a dog can never be a cat...It is very common that people still smokes marihuana, drinks alcohol and have premarital intercourse before marriage. This shot was taken during a meeting, I first thought that this man was actually lighting a "spliff" but the achenese have as well their traditional tobacco.
