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.

Thanks for blogging my story I appreciate all the support. It is kind of sad as a search warrant was issued against me using my religious beliefs when I was honest with the two officers that RECORDED the conversation. I just want to help take care of my wife regardless of the legality of it why does a cocktail of six prescription drugs not work as well as one inhibitor and some holy anointing oil and smoking/vaporizing a bit of cannabis. What good man doesn't want to take care of their wife?
-Rev. Shawn Fluewelling
