Default 'Weed nuns' who took vows to a HIGHER power

Women who dedicate their lives to growing cannabis at their 'convent' bungalow in California suburb will turn over more than $1million from sale of their medical marijuana products this year

Sister Kate, born Christine Meeusen, established the order of the Sisters of the Valley in northern California
The women produce medical marijuana products such as salves, tinctures and oils - though they've faced significant issues with local authorities over the legality of their business
The Sisters take vows of servitude, activism and spirituality and harvest their plants by moon cycles
They are not religious nuns but credit the inspiration for their Sisterhood from ancient European feminists and practices from local Native American tribes

Sister Kate, second from right, passes a joint to Sister Freya, as
the group convenes for a new moon ceremony in which they will
celebrate notable events in their community and bless their monthly
marijuana harvest at their bungalow 'convent' in Merced, northern
California

LOL - this is about 20 minutes South of me. I'm surprised they have gotten away with it. We're in a pretty conservative area. But, personally, I don't have a problem with it. Great way to squirm around the law.

Weird. Doesn't look like they're doing any harm though... This whole legalization of weed thing just needs to be gotten on with. Way too much time, money, energy and manpower thrown into that particular fight.
