Following in the steps of sacred spiritual peyote and Rastafarianism ('Ey mon!), here's a site that promotes marijuana use as religious freedom! The founder of this group, "Craig X," started Temple 420 as a religious tax-exempt organization after the United States Supreme Court ruled in favor of peyote use in February of 2006 (Gonzales vs. O Centro Espirita Beneficiente Uniao do Vegetal). and he intends to use this tax exemption to change existing laws classifying marijuana as an illegal, addictive drug. Membership in this organization costs $100 US, which will presumably be used to pay for legal help when members of this temple are busted for drug possession. Craig X – also known to his followers as the Pope of Pot – states that this group is actually of the Jewish persuasion, which is why they call themselves a "temple" and not a "church." As they state on the Web site:
"…as a Jewish and Christian congregation we look to the book of Revelation Chapter 22 when it speaks of a plant for the healing of all nations. No other plant on earth more closely resembles the description in this book than the cannabis plant."
