BIG ISLE PREACHER SPREADING GOSPEL OF MARIJUANA
Roger Christie -- make that the Rev. Roger Christie of the Hawai'i CannabisMinistry -- knows he could use his remote patch of land on the Big Island toperform his first wedding ceremony with marijuana as a sacrament.
But Christie doesn't want marijuana for religious or medical reasons to behidden away, even in a beautiful corner of the Puna District such as KehenaBeach. No, Christie wants his church services to draw a crowd. So he'slooking for just the right place in Hilo for his first wedding that includesmarijuana.
His friend and fellow marijuana advocate Jon Adler held a blessing yesterdayfor a marijuana greenhouse on Adler's property in Puna. Adler's two-storyhouse serves double duty as the Hawai'i Medical Marijuana Institute andAdler's Religion of Jesus Church, East Hawai'i Branch.
