Meridian's Ministry of Cannabis
Have you read about the recent case of a Meridian man being arrested for belonging to the THC Ministry based out of Hawaii? THC as in Cannabis, Mary Jane, Weed etc. http://www.kivitv.com/Global/story.asp?s=8333738 It appears that the Rev. Shawn Fluewelling of Meridian is using the Freedom of Religion defense and it just might work. Ada county prosecuters have asked for more time, ostensibly because they haven’t yet figured out how to prove a negative – that the THC Ministry is NOT a religion and the Rev. Fluewelling is simply getting high for pleasure and not spiritual enlightenment. There is lots of precedent for herbs as spiritual aids, and personally I’m rooting for Shawn and all of you out there who find a little bit of god in the green herb.
