George Jeffries prepares to smoke a "spliff" in a room behind a friend's bar in Belize City. Like many Rastafarians in Belize, Jeffries struggles to retain his African culture while trying to cope in a society that increasingly feels the pressures of globalization through the explosion of gangs, tourism and the drug trade. Jeffries struggles to support his five children, born of three different mothers, two of which reside in the U.S, by working an array of jobs. He deals marijuana, drives an unlicensed taxi and occasionally works at a coconut stand that caters to tourists. (image by Joey Anchondo)
