If children can drink wine during Holy Communion, then Robert George Henry insists he should be able to smoke marijuana without being hassled by the cops.
Henry, a baby boomer from Fannettsburg, Pennsylvania, claims he is a rolling-paper-carrying member of the Hawaii Cannabis Ministry, a denomination devoted to the use of marijuana as a sacrament.
His right to smoke marijuanja for spiritual enlightenment is therefore protected under the Constitution, the 47-year-old claims in a motion that will prompt a legal battle in Cumberland County Court.
Henry is asking a judge to dismiss drunken-driving and marijuana possession charges filed by state police on grounds that his drug use is a constitutionally protected religious practice. On Tuesday, the judge postponed the case until April 16.
Could it be he is just reminiscing about his days as a member of the Drugs, Sex and Rock-n-Roll generation?
