Psychedelic Churches and Outlaw Churches

In my search on cannabis discussions and study of cannabis faithful I ran into Mike Marinacci who has been doing studies the same and has a book he wrote Psychedelic Cults and Outlaw Churches: LSD, Cannabis, and Spiritual Sacraments in Underground America – He wrote this book which includes some churches I am affiliated with such a THCMinistries and The Healing Church. He describes and walks though rituals, pratices and their legal battles.

He also was in a Talk about it a Harvard this year as well.

Missouri Bill to put all cannabis products in DHHS Hands.



Republican State Representative Kurtis Gregory from Marshall, Missouri, has introduced a bill to regulate the sale of delta-8 tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) products. The products, which are used to give people a high, are derived from hemp and are legal under federal law. While some stores and vendors have imposed age restrictions of 21 and up, there is no state or federal regulation of these products. Gregory’s bill would task the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services with regulating these products and require the products to be sold at DHSS-licensed dispensaries. While critics worry that regulating the industry under the umbrella of DHSS would create a “marijuana monopoly”, Gregory’s bill is gaining support from many quarters, including delta-8 businesses, law enforcement, and the American Academy of Pediatrics.

The bill itself locks down “any intoxicating” cannaboid and makes it so it’s ONLY able to be sold in Cannabis Dispensaries. This will harm the Hemp Industry for sure. If you notice, dispensaries are already selling “Hemp” products as well, high in THC-A but low in THC 9 – the regulated content. You maybe just buying all your hemp products at the Missouri regulated shops in this case.

Is the world ‘Marijuana’ racist?

I read today a take from Leafy discussing the use of the word “Marijuana” and does it end up being racist to use?

I was glad to see this article and their perspective. I often run into this and prefer to not use “Marijuana” often if I can help it. I tend to less see it as racist, but a jab to fog up the meaning of the word and give a negative spun perspective. As mentioned in the article, many under 20 or so know and use the word, while those 50 and older would prefer to avoid the word.

I prefer to use the words Cannabis or Hemp as they are the same plant and important to our history and health. Prior to 1937 Cannabis and Indian Hemp we’re the terms used for Cannabis in a Medicinal form!

Infact the other day I picked up a Stedman’s Shorter Medical Dictionary and found it listed there:
(It also lists it’s in the U.S.P which is the United States Pharmacopeia (official medicine sourcebook)

Anyways, enough on my tangent. It’s just important to me that Marijuana has been a word to confuse as those who used medicine knew what cannabis was. We now today pretend it’s a cousin. If you want to learn the history of cannabis I recommend reading Emperor Wears no Clothes by Jack Herer and http://antiquecannabisbook.com as well to see the history of cannabis.

Well check the link below for Leafly’s input –

HempMyLife comments:

I know from efforts in my community that Cannabis can be checked with a Spectrometer. It appears now we’ve got a hand held portable
Raman spectrometer that can check your Cannabis for THC now. It used to be a big machine that could do it in a lab. Now you can bring it with you!

I think this is a good thing for the part that we’ve had so many people trying to move cannabis CBD/Hemp products and getting nailed and detained as they can’t figure out it’s not ‘Marijuana’ (0.03< THC really only difference). They are both a superfood and amazing for you. If the feds will allow the ‘Hemp’ variety the be used while we’re sorting the medical laws we should be able to access it. Hopefully this helps that plight.

“Living It” – Asks if Cannabis contains next superfood.

Web Browsing and checking Cannabis news I run into an article about “Cannabis containing the next superfood!”. 🤣

Cannabis is THE Superfood. Cannabis is as safe as any other food. It actually is safer and has all the nutrients to live off of! Cannabis is full of the amazing Essential Fatty Acids… Which in turn become our own bodies form of Cannabis – EndoCannaboids!

They really don’t get in that part, well a little talking about the EFAs. They also nicely talk how “Hemp” is a “Cousin” or “Marijuana” which is still such a silly debate. Its all Cannabis Sativa L. the feds just dis-allow it with THC. Its like a literal banning of red tomatoes….. ‘You can stick to the yellow ones.’

Cannaboids help regulate our bodies, it is good for you and has been for the last 6,000 years!
