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 story of the Witch of Endor highlights the dangers to the lives of Witches in ancient Israel.
Witch of Endor
I Samuel 28:3 Now Samuel was dead, and all Isreal had mourned for him and buried him in his own town of Ramah. Saul had expelled the mediums and spiritists from the land. New International Version (NIV)
I Samuel 28:7 Saul then said to his attendants, Find me a woman who is a medium, so I may go and inquire of her.
There is one in Endor, they said. New International Version (NIV)
I Samuel 28:8 So Saul disguised himself, putting on other clothes, and at night he and two men went to the woman. Consult a spirit for me, he said, and bring up for me the one I name. New International Version (NIV)
I Samuel 28:9 But the woman said to him, Surely you know what Saul has done. He has cut off the mediums and spiritists from the land. Why have you set a trap for my life to bring about my death? New International Version (NIV)
I Samuel 28:10 Saul swore to her by the LORD, As surely as the LORD lives, you will not be punished for this. New International Version (NIV)
I Samuel 28:11 Then the woman asked, Whom shall I bring up for you?
Bring up Samuel, he said. New International Version (NIV)
I Samuel 28:12 When the woman saw Samuel, she cried out at the top of her voice and said to Saul, Why have you deceived me? You are Saul! New International Version (NIV)
I Samuel 28:13 The king said to her, Dont be afraid. What do you see?
The woman said, I see a spirit coming up out of the ground. New International Version (NIV)
I Samuel 28:14 What does he look like? he asked.
An old man wearing a robe is coming up, she said.
Then Saul knew it was Samuel, and he bowed down and prostrated himself with his face to the ground. New International Version (NIV)
I Samuel 28:15 Samuel said to Saul, Why have you disturbed me by bringing me up?
I am in great distress, Saul said. The Philistines are fighting against me, and God has turned away from me. He no longer answers me, either by prophets or by dreams. So I have called on you to tell me what to do. New International Version (NIV)
I Samuel 28:16 Samuel said, Why do you consult me, now that the LORD has turned away from you and become your enemy? New International Version (NIV)
I Samuel 28:17 The LORD has done what he predicted through me. The LORD has torn the kingdom out of your hands and given it to one of your neighbors to David. New International Version (NIV)
I Samuel 28:18 Because you did not obey the LORD or carry out his fierce wrath against the Amalekites, the LORD has done this to you today. New International Version (NIV)
I Samuel 28:19 The LORD will hand over both Israel and you to the Phiistines, and tomorrow you and your sons will be with me. The LORD will also hand over the army of Israel to the Philistines. New International Version (NIV)
I Samuel 28:20 Immediately Saul fell full length on the ground, filled with fear because of Samuels words. His strength was gone, for he had eaten nothing all that day and night. New International Version (NIV)
I Samuel 28:21 When the woman came to Saul and saw that he was greatly shaken, she said, Look, your maidservant has obeyed you. I took my life in my hands and did what you told me to do. New International Version (NIV)
I Samuel 28:22 Now please listen to your servant and let me give you some food so you may eat and have the strength to go on your way. New International Version (NIV)
I Samuel 28:23 He refused and said, I will not eat.
But his men joined the woman in urging him, and he listened to them. He got up from the ground and sat on the couch. New International Version (NIV)
I Samuel 28:24 The woman had a fattened calf at the house, which she butchered at once. She took some flour, kneaded it and baked bread without yeast. New International Version (NIV)
I Samuel 28:25 Then she set it before Saul and his men, and they ate. That same night they got up and left. New International Version (NIV)
CannabisClergy.com is now officially sponsored by Pr Ntr Kmt. This website will continue to provide information for any form of cannabis religion, using the ancient Egyptian religion as a primary example.
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.
