Freedom to farm is the first test of religious freedom.

Every god that people have ever worshipped has essentially been in agreement with the Christian God in the Holy Bible, who apparently said, "Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed...and every green herb." on page one of Genesis. The agricultural foundations of religion were established by even more ancient cultures and spiritual traditions.

In the context of present emergency environmental conditions it is no longer possible to pretend that Cannabis agriculture, manufacture and trade are not the most proportionate and globally available response to climate change, food insecurity and perhaps the only immediate measure that can be implemented regionally to address increasing UV-B radiation, the "global broiling" that's likely contributing if not causing the death of bees, bats, amphibians, and other more vulnerable species.
