Marijuana has finally made it

Poor cannabis – for so many years, despite being extremely prevalent in use, it just couldn’t get any respect.

All that’s about to change:

Westboro Baptist Church hates pot: controversial Church to picket Marijuana shops in Colorado

The controversial church plans to picket Pueblo West Organics located on 609 E. Enterprise Drive and Marisol Therapeutics on 922 E. Kimble Drive.

The church claims marijuana shops are associated with sorceries because of their link to the drug trade.

Anything they picket turns to gold. Look what happened when they started picketing gays. Suddenly gay rights seemed like an incredibly good idea.

You really can’t buy this kind of help.

From Westboro’s schedule of picketing:

Pueblo West Organics (a/k/a Weed Store 🙁 in Pueblo West, CO December 29, 2014 1:15 PM – 1:45 PM
Westboro Baptist Church will picket Pueblo West Organics, to warn the living – it is a most dire warning … GOD HATES YOUR SORCERIES!

And a mighty angel took up a stone like a great millstone, and cast it into the sea, saying, Thus with violence shall that great city Babylon be thrown down, and shall be found no more at all. And the voice of harpers, and musicians, and of pipers, and trumpeters, shall be heard no more at all in thee; and no craftsman, of whatsoever craft he be, shall be found any more in thee; and the sound of a millstone shall be heard no more at all in thee; And the light of a candle shall shine no more at all in thee; and the voice of the bridegroom and of the bride shall be heard no more at all in thee: for thy merchants were the great men of the earth; for by thy sorceries were all nations deceived. And in her was found the blood of prophets, and of saints, and of all that were slain upon the earth. (Rev. 18:21-24)

Sorceries – pharmakeia far-mak-i?-ah sorcery witchcraft 1; 3

1) the use or the administering of drugs

2) poisoning

3) sorcery, magical arts, often found in connection with idolatry and fostered by it

4) metaph. the deceptions and seductions of idolatry
Do you see yourselves in that promised coming destruction foolish USA?

Doomed USA leads the world in your illegal drug trade. As if that were not bad enough, now the government sanctions those drugs. You bring down the wrath of God upon you! God Almighty will get his honor in your destruction! Westboro Baptist Church rejoices at the promised coming full, complete, final destruction! God is true and every man a liar. The mouth of the Lord has spoken of this event, so it WILL be!

GOD HATES SAME-SEX PIMPING, POT-SMOKING, FILTHY COLORADO PERVS!

    Was there a lull in gay hating??

      They can’t hate everyone full time clay. I’m not saying that they wouldn’t want to; It’s a brain capacity issue. So it follows that from time to time they forget that they hate a particular target cohort until some exogenous event refreshes their memory. From that knowledge of their brains or whatever it is that occupies that hollow place in their skulls we can deduce that it is plausible that there was in fact a lull in gay hating.

      People like this get my mind boggled. I have to keep reminding myself that since they’re equal opportunity haters hating everyone else without regard (including but not limited to) race, creed, color, age, gender, sexual orientation, marital status, IQ, etc. etc. etc. by definition they don’t qualify as bigots.

      They’re already wasting our supply of oxygen and now you want them to waste perfectly good cannabis? You need to get your mind right Luke.

      Has anyone checked to see if Home Depot or Lowe’s sells any prohibitionist and/or extremist religionist repellent? Now that’s a product which should be in every house in America.

  • n.t. greene

    They should chill, there’s plenty of weed to go around.

    …wait, you mean that’s not why they’re protesting? Then why do I forsee them being surrounded by smoke clouds?

  • Pricknick

    And God said, “Behold, I have given you every plant yielding seed that is on the face of all the earth, and every tree with seed in its fruit. You shall have them for food.

    One problem though……hopefully they won’t find any seed if they buy.

    Give a turkey, get an 1/8th!

    Granny Purps has always given back to the community we love. From beach clean ups to our canned food drive. We do our best to help others. We are excited to continue down this path with our latest donation of 1200 pounds of frozen turkeys donated to help the needy this holiday.

    This is not enough though. In hopes of making sure that no family has to be without a turkey this holiday season we are asking our members to donate a frozen turkey, and in return we will give you an 1/8th of your choice!

    This is a win win. Help the needy and get some high quality meds for your donation.

    Thank you all for making Santa Cruz the best place on earth!

    People better watch out on the FB group called MMYV or Marijuana Makes You Violent, they are affiliated with the Westboro Baptist Church

    • Crut

      Since it’s a “so ridiculous it has to be parody” group, that’s just fine.

      Westbury just enjoys being on the wrong side of anything, just so long as it’s controversial.

  • darkcycle

    Wait. What? Westboro isn’t so much a church as it is a family of highly litigious lawyers, out to make a buck by suing anybody who infringes on their right to make asses of themselves. They also live for suing people they are able to enrage enough to physically assault them. Who do they think marijuana consumers are? Nobody will try to stop them…the pot stores they target can use it as a badge of honor. No one will violate their rights there, not people who spent 70 years having thier rights violated, no way. I hope somebody posts video to you tube.

    Pete, you’re right;

    Marijuana has finally made it

    Yes, it has.

    HA!

    • B. Snow

      So… if Kev-Kev weighs the same as a duck?
      Then he’s a witch, So = we can burn him! Everyone then, to the Stake – to warm up around the fire.

      We can burn him right alongside with the *Westboro Blasphemers*, Who regularly twist and pervert The Word to promote themselves and their profane actions of “Hating” people and things = *In the Name of God*, based on their pressumption that they’re qualified to judge others!

      Notably persons that are gay/lesbian. When even Pope Francis – (when asked about gays/lesbians in the Catholic Church last July) – said

      “If someone is gay and he searches for the Lord and has good will, who am I to judge?”

      FWIW, I get the levity here… I really do, and that being next on their list is an overall promising thing.

      Still, it’s just more than a little sad that these people are still doing this crap.
      What they’re doing is an embodiment of the act of taking/using the Lord’s name in vain = in that, its done literally for show and to draw attention to themselves.

      And in – (what’s worse IMO) the act of bearing false witness – not in the sense of false testimony or perjury. But rather – in the form of slander, defamation.

      What they seem oblivious to is that by doing this in such a notorious manner it becomes a vilification of the truly faithful. So much so – that they end up pushing people away from churches & the fellowship therein.

      (IMHO, the best part of organized religion is the community & fellowship = specifically a place with a sense of belonging!)
      Or rather, it arguably was the best part = before folks like these chuckle-heads went and ruined it for the rest of us.

      They’re giving religious people of all Christian denominations a bad name, and growing up in a Baptist Church – these people really irk me – they’ve tainted the word “Baptist” worldwide.

      As the distinguished Representative from Redneckia, Texas – *Gohmert Pyle* might put it, they’re “casting aspersions on (our) asparagus”.

      (Sorry, about mixing religion and politics here – but for chriss-sakes its freakin’ Christmas Season! You’d think they could lay off this crap for a week or two, No?

      *Oh, ok, yeah… alrighty then, nevermind.*

      • Howard

        Equating Kevin Sabet and the Westboro Baptist Church was definitely meant as a joke…sort of ;).

        One thing Kevin loves to do is embrace any person/group that even marginally sides with his position regarding cannabis. But a quick look at his twitter feed does not include any reference to the upstanding folks of the Westboro congregation condemning the demon weed. He can ignore it, but Westboro is on his side now (just cracks me up).

        His twisting, distorting and cherry picking of anti cannabis data will continue unabated of course. But now he’s gained Westboro brothers and sisters on his sado-moralist march. Like gum stuck to the bottom of a shoe, try as he might, he can’t unstick himself from those demented blowhards. Oh, the company one keeps, eh Kevin? (hahaha)

      • claygooding

        I have no idea how much kev kev weighs but it is rumored that he uses duck squat as hair tonic so facts and truth slide off his head like water off a ducks ass.

  • Mr_Alex

    Can we vote for the execution of the Westboro baptist church?

  • NorCalNative

    Fucking COOL! I had no idea using cannabis gave me magical powers (sorcery), I mean I always suspected it, but is this actual confirmation?

    If we’re going to intellectually attack militant Christian fundamentalism then lets head right to the source. I blame Constantine and ROME for killing off paganism and embracing the religion of his wife.

    As the author of “American Theocracy” Kevin Phillips says “RELIGION FEEDS A WILLINGNESS TO WAR.”

    This group of Baptists seems to be severely afflicted with SPIRITUAL ALZHEIMER’S. So, put down your instruments of combat and maybe say a prayer for these folks.

    The “social contract” and the “masks” we wear in order to move about and live our lives has established the BIG LIE of Monotheism as some sort of advance in human history. But, when there are hundreds and hundreds of “FLAVORS” to choose from there’s going to be a lot of weird shit. How could it be otherwise?

    • Duncan20903

      NCN, don’t be silly. Unless we really were sorcerors how in heaven’s name could we have talked all those States into implementing medicinal cannabis patient protection laws, even limited re-legalization in 8% of the States. Oh, and do it in the face of an intransigent Federal government with trillions of borrowed dollars to squander? Case closed!

    “I have been one that has been very much against the incredible incarceration rate in the United States,”“

    “What are we doing? We’re locking up people for the possession of marijuana.”
    ~ Pat Robertson.

    “Colorado law encourages the full-scale spread of this stuff, and it is not good for people’s health, it is destroying their minds and it is destroying their lungs and the addiction is pretty heavy.”

    The harder the winds of drug law reform blow, the more the prohibitionist nuts get shaken out of the trees, and the more sadomoralist loons are evicted, flapping madly and squawking gibberish, from their formerly safe havens…flushed out of their faux moral ‘cover’ to where the public can get a good, unedited, raw look at the kind of mindset that was running ‘drug control’ policy.

    And the hurricane behind those winds hasn’t even hit landfall, yet.

      You really do come up with some top notch metaphorical prose. Tip of the pin to you kaptin!

      Nowadays I picture the prohibitionists as as fish freshly caught and flopping around on the pier. Those poor fishes’ entire world has changed without warning and cast them into a place totally outside their ken or experience. So far away from the world that they knew and counted on as a way of life. (Presented for purposes of illustration only. I’m neither implying nor trying to cause people to infer that fish are as stupid as prohibitionists.)

        • claygooding

          When the UN changes the STC and allows hemp production worldwide our drug warriors lose the “old guard” that started marijuana prohibition because what good would it do to keep the US from producing hemp if the world returns to using it as a replacement for nylon and the synthetic materials they manufactured to replace hemp.
          Right now hemp production is choked back and keeps the prices fro hemp products high,,if it gets turned loose the prices will fall,,just as it would if legal marijuana would drop in price as the market was saturated.

          Please forgive me for sniggling clay but it’s the SCT if you’re referring to the Single Convention Treaty of 1961. If you’re not then I’m not getting the reference.

          IMO it doesn’t matter how you mash it, slice it, peel it, or dice it, the UN is nothing but a paper tiger. At least it is in relation to the United States. The SCT is our country’s bastard progeny and was mid-wived by Harry J. Anslinger himself. Regardless, the SCT is our dog & pony show and if we say it’s done then it’s done.

          For the masochists, here’s a link to 13.23 cubic feet of Anslinger droppings (60 individual turds) stored at The “Special” Collections Library at Penn State’s University Park Campus. Wow, at an average size of 0.2205 cubic feet, those are some big turds. Did I say big? I should have said whoppers.

          Did you know that you can go to quite a large number of liquor stores and buy a fifth of cheap swill posing as Scotch for less than $10? Here’s a menu of 10 brands of Scotch starting at $10K per bottle and selling as high as $460,000 per. Sheeee-eeee-it, for half a million dollars a fifth a shot better give me a spontaneous orgasm just from thinking about drinking it.
          http://simplyscotches.blogspot.com/2011/01/top-10-most-expensive-scotch-in-world.html

          It may be impossible for the dimwitted prohibitionists to grasp but I’d think those of us on the inside would be able to grasp that the quality of all cannabis is not fungible with all the other cannabis. Just like fortified wine isn’t fungible with 50 year old scotch.
          ——————————
          Sung to the tune of “Dixie” and inspired by the motto on some government issued vehicular license plates:

          I wish I lived in the Lincoln
          The old boys there when they get to drinkin’
          Look away, look away, look away
          to Lincoln land
          In Lincoln land I’ll make my stand
          to live and die for drinkin’
          Look away, look away, look away
          Look away up north to Lincoln…”

          ——————————
          A piece of arcane trivia about liquor that I’ve never been able to find an answer, from time to time I’ve wondered, why is booze is the only liquid that’s sold in fifths/gallon? Might that be an unintended consequence of drinking alcohol prohibition? I’ve met quite a number of black market cannabis vendors who get 5 quarters out of an ounce. So back in that day were the bootleggers getting 5 quarts from a gallon?

    Maybe the Westboro whack jobs like to protest this girl and Charlotte Figi,her mum Jessica Guest had to move back to Colorado because the New Zealand Government refuses to allow medical cannabis for any condition, it has been said in the media that the New Zealand Health Minister can at his discretion allow medical cannabis, to date no one has been granted medical access to cannabis but the bad news is Sativex has been allowed but the New Zealand Government won’t subsidize it so anyone allowed will have to pay $1,300 a month for Sativex:

    • B. Snow

      They’d have no couth whatsoever – I wouldn’t be the least bit surprised if they protested the Figi’s.

      They protest at funerals of soldiers FFS, why would they care about an epileptic child?
      They are blathering about marijuana sales equating to “Sorceries” (which is far from new – people have compared the chemistry of making meth to satanic magical alchemy).
      And as you might’ve heard, any “magic” that God doesn’t pull-off personally – in the form of a divine miracle. Must surely be deceptive evil, satanic lies, and maybe black magic – straight from the Devil’s spellbook!

      And that leads to (you guessed it) *The End of Days* = I suppose they must think that Great Babylon (as in The Whore of Babylon ) will arise from legal cannabis businesses & retail stores *manifesting* in Pueblo?

      If I were prone to believing anything remotely close to that ludicrous crap. I’d look to Denver, or Seattle = I’m guessing Pueblo is the only place in Colorado:

      That (1.) allows dispensaries AND (2.) will also let these jackholes protest a state-legal business. That’s just an educated guess, but I’d put money on it being essentially true.
      The sky hasn’t literally fallen, so it must be the Apocalypse on the horizon… What else could it be in their view?

      Aside from the reality of the information age = destroying their ability to continue decades of actual lies, they can’t sell their nonsense any longer, EXCEPT of course to those with large “Vested Interests” in the status quo, but they don’t (typically) become true believers.

      That requires a special kind of stupid, no knowledge of the subject, and huge doses of gullible juice -aka- “the kool-aid”.
      Large shifts in modern culture (even slowish ones) that scare them,
      must surely be Signs of the Apocalypse… Right?
