Guide for medical cannabis ministers
and medical marijuana ministers
This is a Guide for medical cannabis ministers and medical marijuana ministers.
This Guide outlines some of the topics you may need to prepare for in order to have a successful legal defense in both federal (U.S.) and state (California) court for working as a medical marijuana minister or medical cannabis minister in a California medical cannabis collective, dispensary, or cooperative.
Exact material will vary greatly by religion. I provide examples from my own religion, although many of the examples may not apply to your religion. You will want to prepare your own defense, probably with the help of a lawyer skilled in first amendment and criminal law.
The Jah Healing Caregivers, 412 South Main St., Fallbrook, California, 92028, 619-654-0287, is in need of help and support in a legal fight against an illegal SWAT raid. Please donate money for the legal fund (an initial need of $5,000) and please also donate your time and energy in helping reopen and prepare for a serious struggle for freedom against illegal government activity.
burning in Hell
Christians claim that Witches are burned in the Christian Hell.
Saint Augustine claimed that burning stakes and bruloirs were justified because hell is a cruel place and cruelty that lasts for less than an hour is preferable to cruelty that lasts for eternity.
Saint Augustine wrote in his 69th address Ad Fratres in Eremitate Sermo LXIX a description of Hell in which Satan seizes a womans damned soul and commands his fellow devils to:
pierce her eyes with forks as she enjoyed looking at unclean things, pierce her mouth as she used them for blasphemy, pierce her heart, as she did not harbor piety, compassion, clemency, and forgiveness there, pierce her hands with the heavy fork forged in Hell since she reached with them at things unclean and did not use them to distribute alms and help her neighbors, use the feiry forks to pierce her legs she used to dance and meet her lovers.
According to Saint Augustine, after the devils performed these tasks, the devils spread their black wings and transported the stabbed womans soul to hell. When the gates of Hell open:
out steps a hideous, horrible dragon, always ready to devour souls. The dragon inserts the soul into his mouth, full of stench. After chewing and digesting the soul, the ddragon vomits the soul into a fiery lake, where millions of other sinful souls wait for their trial by our Lord.
Saint Augustine continued with a description of women fried for eternity in oil and men burned in their own sperm.
The courts have already ruled in multiple cases that a person who starts preparing a religious defense (including gathering certificates and other paperwork) after arrest loses all chance to use the late religious defense. It is essential that you prepare your defense before you are arrested. Adequate preparation may even prevent arrest.
This website is concerned with religious matters and only obliquely discusses the law. I strongly recommend that medical marijuana ministers rely on a high quality lawyer.
I (Milo) use my own religion as an example, because this is the religion I know well. I strongly urge peoplee to get together with their lawyer and prepare a similar discussion for their own religion. Again, my religion is only an example.
Good news: Many people over the years have successfully used Pr Ntr Kmt religious cannabis certificates. The author of this website has personally several times over more than a decade shown various police Pr Ntr Kmt documentation and the police have politely returned the religious cannabis. There are at least two Pr Ntr Kmt cannabis ministers who have been released after the police discovered several pounds of religious cannabis (although the police kept the cannabis). There are numerous real world successes.
Reality: If the government decides it wants to get you, then your only chance is if you can afford a really, really good lawyer.
The law is whatever the government decides the law is.
The rights you heard about in grade school only apply if you can afford a great lawyer. Public defenders are under-budgeted and only want to process paperwork for plea bargains. They simply dont have the time or money for trials.
We dont want to discourage anyone from worshiping with cannabis, but we do want to strongly warn everyone that you have a significant risk of long term imprisonment or worse, especially outside of major industrialized nations.
Please act responsibly. Please hire a lawyer if you can possibly afford to do so.
Get a Pr Ntr Kmt certificate as proof that your cannabis religion is real.
