The only way to test this possibility would be to get arrested for it in your state and claim a religious defense in court to the charge. You'd need a lot of money for attorneys and Roger's guidance.

... it looks like Arizona is one of the worst places for pipes.

Actually, that's a great idea DOS!

Why don't you come up with some designs and make some pieces for a "Ministry smoking device" that could be blessed, anointed and commissioned by Roger, just like the oil.

That way it would become mandatory for everyone to own and use your Sacrament Smoking device...

You think so Laughing I wouldnt want to make it harder for folks by making it mandatory to own one of my bong 's Laughing But could it make them legal if they were properly blessed, anointed and commissioned by Roger, just like the oil. Thats my question?

It would be easy to have all authentic THC Ministry "Sacrament Smoking device"s permanently stamped with a symbol of the THC Ministry/regestered trademark with the webaddress too Very Happy

The no commerce rule is for our sacrament brother, not for hand made artworks. Laughing

off topic, sort of.

that reminds me of a buddy I had.

Went into the hardware store, bought all the part's for making a nice pipe.

But unlike us chickens, this guy ASSEMBLES the pipe as he constructs it,
and pays the cashier for the pipe!

Funniest thing I ever saw...

carry on...

I was reading some stuff about the religous use of Marijuana and I saw this does this mean I have the right to still make my art? Smile

"Religious use" means the acquisition, possession, cultivation, use, distribution, or transportation of marijuana or paraphernalia relating to the consumption of marijuana in a practice of a bona fide religious denomination or society that qualifies as a tax exempt organization under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended. The term "religious use" shall not encompass practices developed primarily for the contravention of prohibitions on marijuana. For the purposes of "religious use", the term distribution is limited to the transfer of marijuana and paraphernalia from bona fide clergy practitioner to qualifying religious member practitioner.


I am curious as to where you saw the text about religious use?

If this is the law, then it is very useful that PrNtrKmt *is* a "bona fide religious denomination" under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. Our Presiding Elder completed all of the necessary paperwork to the government's satisfaction. In addition to being able deduct up to half of your total income in donations to PrNtrKmt, maybe you can also work with PrNtrKmt so that your pipe making is perfectly legal.

You may want to contact the Presiding Elder (Michael M) directly (see web site for contact info).

I used to make pipes in Design and tech in secondary school.

Miss said "what are you making" I said "a peace pipe man". I had this feeling even before this, that she was a smoker, she said "Keep up the good work". Very Happy
