Nuns growing cannabis
A group of nuns is kicking against social norms by growing marijuana at their convent and selling it for medical purposes. But their healthcare remedies are under threat thanks to removal from a popular online store. The Sisters of the Valley are a sisterhood based in Merced, California who are not Catholic or traditionally religious, but they consider themselves nuns. The licensed medical marijuana growers grow the plants in accordance with lunar cycles and create organic health remedies to treat back pain , migraines and even hangovers. But even though the nuns, Sister Kate, whose real name is Christine Meeusen, and Sister Darcy, aka 24-year-old Darcy Johnson, have made money from the enterprise, they are now under threat after Etsy withdrew their shop from online. Another threat is coming from the California municipalities who are considering a cultivation ban that would make their enterprise illegal. Via.
