Control and Tax Cannabis

Rev. Dustin Fineout

New York

"Prohibition encourages an atmosphere that affects all aspects of society -- education, poverty, health care, crime and the black market. Legislating morality of private citizens in their own homes can only breed missinformation and organized criminal activity. Absolutely every harm that has come to be associated with cannabis by those who would encourage its prohibition can actually be demonstrated to be directly caused by prohibition. Eliminating prohibitive legislation concerning cannabis would alleviate these problems.

"Whenever I use cannabis, I consider it to be in practice of my spirituality -- I use it solitarily or with my partner in the morning and evening. However, generally when using it with others, I acknowledge that most people present probably aren't observing the same practices, but I still consider it to be a spiritual occasion. This, of course, does not apply at cannabis sacrament congregations, where all participants are acknowledging the cannabis use as a spiritual burnt offering."
