Religious Marijuana Grow, Part 1

Here are the plants I am currently growing. There are 3 of us, so we can legally grow 18 plants according to Colorado's State Constitution Amendment 64. It is also my Religion, so it is further protected. But I will also be finding people who want to take clones around here, then allow me to pollenate 1 branch of the plant, then allow me to take the seeds, breed them out again or lock the genetics in, then I will share locked in seeds with everyone involved.

First, I already have regular seeds growing, and 3 clones. So from the regular seeds I can get males, then I have some Feminized seeds coming to breed.

I am growing Regular African strains, then White Rhino, Blue Mystic, etc. And I am actually hoping that I will get 1 or 2 of the African strains as males, so that I can breed them with the other plants.

So the plan is African Strains X Aromatic Strains X Commercial Strains, then maybe cross 1 more time with an African Strain or Aromatic Strain

African Strains = Malawi, African Buzz, South African Kwazulu, Early Durban
Aromatic Strains = Banana Crack, White Strawberry Skunk, Blue Mystic, Cheeses, Diesels etc
Commercial Strains = Kush Strains, Haze Strains, White Widow Strains, Skunk Strains, etc

Here is the Religious case for this:

To prove my case I use a mixture of Case Law (Law decided by the Courts), Statutory Law (Law decided by Congress), Fundamental Law (Constitutional Rights and operations of the Courts and Congress as stated in the Constitution,etc), Historical Evidence to prove the reality of the Religion, and even DEA and FDA Administrative Regulations. This is not the whole case, but it is an outline that anyone could show to their lawyer and ask them to apply it to their situation. As long as you are actually growing Religiously, and not just using Religion as an excuse to sell Bud.

Hinduism is the only Ancient World Religion that has survived through Abraham, Jesus and Muhammed and is practiced by 15% of the World's current population. India is the only country in which the people living there are still using the same Temples and Holy Sites that they used over 4500 years ago when the first Hindu Holy Book, the Rig Veda, was written. Marijuana has been a part of every large society, from Ancient China, India and Egypt, to Ancient Greece, Rome and the Middle East and Europe. The word Indica means "From India" the word Sativa means "To Cultivate". The word "Ganja" comes from the Ganges River and the word "Kush" comes from the Hindu Kush Mountains, where it is believed the first Marijuana seeds came from. Lord Shiva is the Lord of Marijuana, the Lord of Bhang. Shiva is what happens when you smoke Marijuana, Shiva is what happens when you Dance. Shiva is simply a force of Nature and can not be denied. The DEA allows for corporations to legally Manufacture, Import (through customs), Distribute/Sell, etc, Marijuana (by the Ton), Coca leaf and Cocaine (by the ton), substances like LSD, 2C-I, DOM, etc, there are companies that have licenses to Manufacture or Import not 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 or 10 substances, but some places are allowed to Manufacture and Import 50+ Schedule I and Schedule II substances. And in August 2016 the opened up registration for companies to begin doing this with Marijuana, as the University of Mississippi was the only place allowed to do it under Federal law before (for the Federal Marijuana patients), and this was seen by the DOJ as a Monopoly, so the DEA opened up registration.

The way this works is called DEA form 225, protocol found in 21 CFR 1301.18; 81 FR 53846. And the Free Exercise Clause states that Congress shall make no laws to prohibit the Free Exercise of Religion. If a corporation has been given a right or opportunity, that same right or opportunity must be given to Religions. The way the courts have stated it previously is that "If Marijuana laws are equally applied to everyone, then we can apply them to your Religion", well they are no longer being equally applied to everyone.

All Sacraments - being "Sacred Food" - are not "Drugs" as defined under 21 USC S 321(g)(1) of the FD&C Act which defined a "Drug" as "An article that is intended for the use in the diagnosis, cure, mitigation, treatment, or prevention of disease in man or other animals and articles (other than food) intended to affect the structure or function of the body of man or other animals".

"But beyond all these matters, no purpose of action against Religion can be imputed to any legislation, State or National, because this is a Religious People. This is Historically true. From the discovery of this continent to the present hour"
Church of the Holy Trinity v. United States 143 US 457 (1892)

A Law is only a Law if it fulfills Constitutional promises, the Constitution being the only thing that allows laws to exist, via the Commerce Clause, etc. But Congress shall not write Laws that prohibit Religion.

A Church is not much different in nature than a State, see Texas v. White 74 US 700 (1868). Religion is a form of COMITY INTER GENTES from AFFLATUS. The Separation of Church and State in the Establishment Clause exists because of the fact that Religion used to be the State, as it is now in Vatican City and the Holy See, Churches may be a party to CONCORDAT see Ponce v. Roman Catholic Church 210 US 296 (1908); Respublica v. DeLongchamps 1 US 111 (1784); Serban Orthodox Diocese v. Milivojevich 426 US 696 (1976); Presbyterian Church v. Hull Church 393 US 440 (1969).

Similarly to how people think of "Africa" as one giant thing, it is actually a very diverse place, with very diverse cultures and people and genetics and backgrounds and colonial histories, etc. And that is true for the African strains as well. I have also read that the South African Kwazulu is actually a fast flowering strain, and then one of the strains I have is early Durban, so that is an earlier flowerer.

The first think I really want to do is mix the Afircan strains with Aromatic strains. Supposedly Durban Poison and Grandaddy Purp made Cherry Pie, then crossing that back with Grandaddy Purp made Pink Champagne. So the Early Durban (which is Durban mixed with Skunk, which is pretty Aromatic already) and the African strains, when mixed with Banana Crack, White Strawberry Skunk, Blue Mystic, Girl Scout Cookies, and Purple Bud, it could bring out some good smells that don't exist yet, the same way Cherry Pie was made. I would also be interested in mixing them with Diesels and Cheeses and strong Lemon strains and Erdbeer and things like that.

Then I want to mix those crosses with things like Hazes and Kushes and White Widow Strains and Green Crack, etc.

And either lock the genetics in at that point, or cross them back with African strains or Aromatic strains.

African Buzz is an Malawi Gold Phenotype that was bred out by a Breeding company.

Malawi is another form of Malawi Gold from another company, the genetics are not locked in and it is a normal landrace.

South African Kwazulu is an African landrace from the Shaka Zulu tribe.

Early Durban is Durban Poison from South Africa, combined with Skunk #1 plants that were selected for their early flowering times.

Blue Mystic is a plant that no one is sure of the background of, but people have guessed that it is probably Northern Lights and Blueberry.

Hindu Kush is basically a selected landrace plant that has been bred by a company, and is from the Hindu Kush Mountain region.

White Rhino is White Widow mixed with Rhino.
