Thank you for sharing your lack of interest in this topic. I recommend a
daily digest so you can scan the day's posts in one glance.
I can't offer you thanks for judging those who do find this type of
ministry of value, however.
As someone who finds medicinal marijuana effective in controlling
chronic pain, I urge you to put aside your prejudices and learn more
about the healing aspects of this ancient plant.

I would like to add a few things to this discussion.
The Universal Life Church includes individuals, temples, and entire
communities who embrace Cannabis as a Sacrament. That is, embrace it as
a blessed substance that provides a direct path to the Divine. We ask
that you respect other people's spiritual lives.
Cannabis is a gift to the world from the Creator, and, as with every
part of the creation, there are appropriate uses for Cannabis just as
there are ways to misuse and abuse it, just like with any substance. We
encourage people to learn the difference between use and abuse.
The above truths apply to other Sacraments as well, including the
Entheogens (also known as Psychedelics).
No one has ever become ill, been poisoned or killed from the use of
Cannabis, ever, in all of its thousands of years of documented history.
It is one of the safest to use substances in the world.
Authoritarian Prohibition of Cannabis is not only irrational and unjust;
it is also unconstitutional, illegal, harmful and is the source of
death, illness and great suffering for millions of people.
