Use of Marijuana for Religious Purposes.
Marijuana has been used for religious purposes for thousands of years
This is intended as a fun commentary of the historical religious use of marijuana, modern religious use, and the legal implications of marijuana law VS the freedom of religion. There are a number of books that have been written regarding ancient and modern religious use of marijuana. Chris Bennett is perhaps the global expert on ancient religious use of marijuana and has written several books on the subject. I would recommend his books for a thorough study of the subject. There are various other authors as well that you might want to consider for a full study of the subject.
It may be surprising to many of you that religious use of marijuana is found in Christianity, Buddhism, Judaism, Zoroastrianism, and scores of various other religions. The United States of America claims to have freedom of religion, yet in cases where religious use of marijuana have come up the defendants have been denied to make a religious use defense in front of a Jury. Churches that have used marijuana as a religious sacrament are often prosecuted as conspirators, their homes and property confiscated, children taken away, and they are denied a religious use defense in front of a jury. Once convicted in this "Mickey Mouse" judicial process they are sentenced to exceedingly long sentences under the conspiracy laws.
The question that we have to ask ourselves, are the people that use cannabis or marijuana for sacramental purposes criminals? The United States Government has made provisions for the American Indians to use peyote as a sacrament. There are also protections under 1st and the 14th amendments, yet I have seen no cases where this has come forth to protect religious cannabis users. How can it ever be tested when the judges in the the USA refuse to allow a religious use defense. Why is using marijuana as a religious sacrament such a problem for the Government?
Perhaps their real problem is with GOD.
GOD the Criminal? Leader of the religious use conspiracy under US Law ?
Under US law and the laws of many other countries, God is a criminal and conspirator. God by his own admission made all illegal plants and commands his followers to use these plants as meat and as sacraments. The followers of God are also conspirators in Gods illegal activities under Gods direction. Gods true name is unknown. We know of Gods illegal activities through a Book called the Bible, put together by his followers.
In Genesis 1:11 God admits to manufacturing all illegal plants:
Genesis 1:11 "And God said, Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb yielding seed, and the fruit tree yielding fruit after his kind, whose seed is in itself, upon the earth: and it was so."
Then in Genesis 1:29 King James Version God gives his followers all legal and illegal plants including marijuana, and commands them to use them as meat:
Genesis 1:29 "And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat."
Then in Genesis 30:23 God commands his followers to make a Holy Anointing Oil with 6 pounds of marijuana as an ingredient.
Exodus 30:23 Take thou also unto thee principal spices, of pure myrrh five hundred shekels, and of sweet cinnamon half so much, even two hundred and fifty shekels, and of Kaneh Bosem (marijuana) two hundred and fifty shekels, 24 And of cassia five hundred shekels, after the shekel of the sanctuary, and of oil olive an hin: 25 And thou shalt make it an oil of holy ointment, an ointment compound after the art of the apothecary : it shall be an holy anointing oil.
Then in Exodus 30:26 God commands his followers to anoint (to pour) this marijuana based oil over the alter of incense, the alter of burn offering, and other items to make them Holy. By doing this all members of the Church inhale the marijuana based oil when the incense is burnt.
Exodus 30:26 Then use it to anoint the Tent of Meeting, the ark of the Testimony, 27 the table and all its articles, the lampstand and its accessories, the altar of incense, 28 the altar of burnt offering and all its utensils, and the basin with its stand. 29 You shall consecrate them so they will be most holy, and whatever touches them will be holy.
Then in Exodus 30:30 God commands his priests to be anointed with this marijuana based oil: "Anoint Aaron and his sons and consecrate them so they may serve me as priests".

Jesus Christ co-conspirator under Gods illegal activities?
A man known as Jesus, (AKA: Yahshua, Jesus Christ, The Christ), is a possible co-conspirator under Gods illegal activities. He is known as the Christ because he is purported to be anointed with Gods marijuana based Holy Oil. He claims to be the Son of God. He was thought to be dead after his crucifixion 2000 years ago by the Roman Government, but his followers claim he was resurrected and still lives. With his gang that he called the 12, he began a church of priests called Christians. They were known as Christians because each member went through an initiation called a Fire Baptism, which is concluded by being anointed with Gods marijuana based Holy Oil. Reports also have it that Jesus used Gods marijuana based Holy Oil for healing, which is also illegal. His gang, the 12 are all thought to be dead, but Jesus is reported to appear in various parts of the world, and it has been reported that he will return with an army to put and end to our Government which his followers call the Anti-Christ and the False Anointed.

Religions with Sacramental Marijuana Connections
The religious use of marijuana is documented in many ancient texts from around the world, and was certainly used for religious purposes for thousands of years before recorded history. Archaeological evidence dating to prehistoric times clearly shows that marijuana played a significant role in the development of African, Middle Eastern, East Indian, and Chinese religions. Certainly there is written evidence of the religious use of cannabis in most ancient cultures. Below you will find a partial list of cannabis using religions.
Buddhism: used in initiation and mystical rituals since the 5th century BC. Gautama Siddhartha, founder of Buddhism, lived primarily on marijuana seeds and leaves in the years before his enlightenment.
Christian: Marijuana in the Jewish Holy Oil, The practice of anointing or Chrismation. Healing with marijuana based Holy Oil.
Ethiopian-Zion Coptics: Believe cannabis sacrament comes from the Essene traditions. Tree of Life
Gnostic: Marijuana in the Jewish Holy Oil, The practice of anointing or Chrismation. Healing with Holy Oil.
Hindu: Shiva God Worship. Smoked as ganja or drunk as bhang. Charas or hashish smoked.
Judaism: Marijuana in the Holy Oil and Incense burning.
Rastafari: Jamaica; Marijuana Smoking. Believe Marijuana is the Tree of Life.
Riamba: Africa; Marijuana Smoking
Sythians: Herodotus reported ceremonial practices by the Scythians around the 4th century BC
Sufi Muslims: South Asia. Used cannabis in religion
Sikh: Northern India, Smoked in meditation. Used in religious festivals like Hola Mohalla.
Taoist: Cannabis was added into ritual incense-burners. Using cannabis in censers.
Zoroastrianism: Used a drink called Haoma which contained cannabis. Zoroaster is where we get our modern concepts of heaven and hell.
Since the production of my film documentary, "The Fire Baptism and the Lost Sacraments", I have seen many groups of religious cannabis users suffer under the court systems of the United States. Churches are tried as conspirators and not even permitted to make a religious defense. Children are taken away, and these people are thrown into prison for exceedingly long sentences under the criminal conspiracy laws. Recently one man was incarcerated for five years without a trial, simply because he demanded to argue a religious use case.
When I think that the Holy Anointing Oil of God (Exodus 30:23) is illegal literally world wide, it simply astounds me. This is why I have decided to revamp all of this within this blog series.
