Pharmakeia 2: Fighting Religion with Religion

Cannabis and Religious FreedomIn Part 2 of his series on the Bush’s Evangelical inspired war on weed, host Chris Bennett sugests that the answer is to fight religion with religion…. As word spreads that Jesus healed with cannabis and used it for initiatory purposes, the Christian Right’s war on weed will fall to the wayside. One way of achieving this goal is through the courts and Chris interviews legal beagle Ed Pearson about a motion they are filing in Canada to seek a religious “excemption” for cannabis use. As well Chris talks to Jeff Brown and Tom Brown, two longtime American spiritual use activists who are persuing a similiar course of action in the United States.

Here’s what the Critics are saying about Sex, Drugs, Violence and the Bible

“Scholarly, hip, witty and extremely well documented… This book might cause a revolution in biblical studies!”
-Robert Anton Wilson, Philosopher, Author and Lecturer

“…SEX, DRUGS, VIOLENCE AND THE BIBLE is…excellent… especially in its
detailing the early history… politics… [and]the… seamy sides of
Christianity… Read Bennett before rereading the Bible!”
-Jonathon Ott, Entheobotanist, Author and Lecturer

“I love this information. Jesus used cannabis for healing and enlightenment!”
-Dana Larsen, Editor of Cannabis Culture Magazine

“The book is fascinating! There can be little doubt about a role for Cannabis in Judaic religion… there is no way that so important a plant as a fiber source for textiles and nutritive oils and one so easy to grow would have gone unnoticed, and the mere harvesting of it would have induced an entheogenic reaction.”
