Wait, so a more efficient method of making paper should be illegal?

It's a completely non-lethal plant, has tons of medicinal qualities, has tons of practical uses (clothing, rope, oil, etc), and probably looked pretty damn awesome out in the wild.


But hey, these new Christians know everything.
Hey, I'm a Christian and I find the prohibition of and the prosecution of those who consume this God given and beneficial plant to be immoral! You must mean the fundies.

Good way to put it


I love me some Jesus, but don't claim a religion. I'm a pretty spiritual guy though. I meditate (should do more), pray, and sometimes fast as far as practice.

I know you weren't asking me, but I live in California... and not only do I have a medical license to grow & possess, but it's also decriminalized for recreational purposes now. Isn't that pretty much the opposite of criminal?

And Finn, why didn't you answer the question regarding us medical patients? Do you consider us criminals too? Before you mention federal laws, keep in mind that our local LE honors state laws first (at least for non-sellers). I've tested the theory, and got my weed handed right back to me with "have a nice night, ma'am."
