"Collect choice spices..."

The recipe that follows is from the King James Bible, Exodus 30:23. It's the Holy Anointing Oil that Christ used to bless people with. It is recipe for the oil that Roger Christie makes on the Big Island of Hawaii, on the Full Moon, and uses to bless his congregation.

Reverend Roger has lovingly shared this ancient oil and recipe with literally thousands of people, and has given several ounces of it to me for free. Roger is a true minister of Cannabis. To keep him in prison is a crime against the First Amendment. To hold him without bail is a blow to the Constitution.

"Take the following fine spices: 500 shekels of liquid myrrh, half as much (that is, 250 shekels) of fragrant cinnamon, 250 shekels of fragrant cane,(also translated as spice-cane , sweet calamus, sweet myrtle, aromatic cane, etc.)


What exactly is the harm in finding spiritual association and social evolution through the reverential appreciation of Cannabis, compared to the Department of Justice violating the First Amendment?

Set Roger Christie free, now.

Selling out the herb through popular vote

"Legalizing" marijuana through a vote in November concedes rightful jurisdiction over an unique and essential "herb bearing seed" that's never been truly illegal.

Cannabis is essential and unique, beyond the rightful jurisdiction of any court. Reclaiming ancient traditions of spiritual gratitude in the context of the world's oldest global culture, founded in respect for nature, is are all that's needed to free the herb. The laws are in place. No vote needed.
Come on Tommy, we have the opportunity for "essential ciivilian demand" for critical "strategic resource."
The vote will result in the bureaucratic death of the hemp industry, as it did in Hawaii at the University's DEA"permitted" test field. Just bigger, more vicious and institutionalized.

Don't sell out the herb to the same uptight, lying, traitorous regime who, for more than seventy years, has refused to acknowledge the true value of the world's most nutritious and useful, potentially abundant and globally distributed agricultural resource.
Freedom to farm "every herb bearing seed" is the first test of religious freedom. Let's not rush for the carrot and give away the First Amendment so willingly.

beyond accountable jurisdiction

Cannabis is valuable beyond the accountable jurisdiction of any court. Imposing scarcity of an uniquely essential agricultural resource is antithetical to free governance.

Burdening the Cannabis industry in a the bureaucratic mire that failed to acknowledge its true value for more than seventy years, will only make Cannabis agriculture, manufacture and trade ridiculously expensive, blatantly corrupt and criminally inefficient as the rest of the political mess.

Cannabis isn't illegal, it's essential. Anyone who concedes rightful jurisdiction before the question has even been asked concedes too much too soon. I'll not entrust my family's health and well-being when I know that the best medicine is the one that keeps you from getting sick in the first place, namely hemp seed, biodynamic, fresh, fertile.

In the "Land of the Free" people can eat what they want, except for fresh fertile hemp seed that will prevent and successfully treat cancer and other grave imbalances in body and planet. Love is the limit of law, and if you love your children enough, you'll help me shatter that law.

Can we stop all this nonsense about a 'marijuana' vote that will only codify control over Cannabis by short-sighted, naive, public acquiescence? What's needed is for people to wake up to the full legal significance of religious freedom in the Constitution, as it secures the spiritual dimensions of farming.

Roger Christie is in Honolulu prison right now, denied bail, standing up for your religious freedom too.

Free Roger Christie and the THC Ministry 13

Please do what you can to help get Reverend Roger out of prison, whose "First Freedom" (DOJ) is being violated, at the same time he's being denied the presumption of innocence before trial. Regardless of what people think about 'marijuana' the court system has slipped several notches closer to outright fascism in the case of Roger Christie.

for peace,

Press Release: DOJ Violating Our "First Freedom"

Saturday, July 24, 2010
Press Release: DOJ Violating Our "First Freedom"

Roger Christie must be released from prison immediately and his oppressors identified and immobilized.

The First Amendment of the United States Constitution is under attack, and if people let the Reverend Roger Christie languish in prison, then you will "reap what you sow" in the execution of what has historically been legally secured as the "First Freedom" in our American spiritual culture.

Our individual spiritual evolution is being attacked by people who have lost their connection to the Natural Order. Disrespect for Cannabis and the people who find essential value in it violates "natural, god-given, inalienable" rights.

No matter what you believe about Cannabis, or why you believe it, the fact remains that every negative experience anyone has ever had with 'marijuana' has happened in the context of the so-called "drug war."

What "defines" a true religion is you are entitled to believe anything you want, as long as it doesn't harm anyone else. That's called the Golden Rule.

The THC Minstry is consistent with that rule. No harm done -- in fact quite the opposite-- there's enormous benefit to the Big Island community resulting from Roger's Ministry and Cannabis educators who learn about the wonders of Cannabis from Roger. The NIDA itself reported the increase in hard drug use in the absence of an abundant pakalolo supply.

Everything else aside, you can't hold someone in prison without bail for their religious belief. It isn't okay to dismiss his peaceful religious beliefs before he's been tried.

The "religious" leaders who ought to be in prison are the ones who support Godless behavior including endless wars against the only common seed with three essential fatty acids, the best available source of organic vegetable protein on Earth and the only crop that produces biofuels and a complete food from the same harvest while generating a year-round river of "monterpenes" into the atmosphere to protect the planet against solar radiation, while re-mineralizing depleted farmlands, stopping soil erosion, expanding the arable base, producing oxygen, sequestering carbon, detoxifying air land and water, providing herbal therapeutics for free and making it possible for humanity to achieve sustainable existence within a functional Natural Order.

The people who are violating your and my freedom of religion right now by emprisoning Roger Christie, are directed by the same horrifyingly immoral regime that violates the Geneva Conventions, wire-taps your phone, wages wars for "petropoison" and proliferates the use of depleted uranium munitions, while imposing essential agricultural resource scarcity on a world on the verge of synergistic collapse of environment, economics and social structures..

Besides, Cannabis has been scientifically proven beyond doubt to be good for your health in many ways. It's The Lie of Two Centuries that THC, CBDs, CBNs or any other component of the Cannabis plant is harmful to the human body.

What's true is that, that the best 'medicine' is the one that's available for free from God, that keeps you from getting sick in the first place.

Roger Christie has been a friend of mine for almost twenty years. I think Roger would permit me to say, he and I have worked closely to help ourselves and others appreciate and recognize the spiritual legitimacy of the world's oldest global culture.

Truly, Roger Christie is first of all a man of peace. I can promise you that this man is sincere and tremendously insightful in awakening people's latent spiritual regard for the Cannabis plant. Not just the smoking of "pot" but the environmental benefits, nutritional and industrial uses as well.

Secondly, I can promise that Roger is NO flight risk. He's been single-handedly taking on the defense of the Big Island for more than two decades, and what would make anybody think that Roger would run. He never has and he's not about to be chased off by this cowardly enforcement act now.

Roger's got more "coconuts" than all 150 of the DEA peace invaders they sent to violate the First Amendment put together. Let Roger out of jail and quit worrying his Mom Doris, who must be praying up a storm right now. I certainly pray for Roger's release and will my spirit to him so that he find strength from the air we breath that connects us

Freedom to farm is the first test of religious freedom. You may not like what I grow, but it doesn't mean I won't defend the ancient, spiritually legitimate individual relationship humankind has had with the planting of "every herb bearing seed."

You may not appreciate the importance of Cannabis seed nutrition and the enormous harms imposed by banning the world's most potentially abundant, globally distributed, environmentally beneficial and industrially useful crop, but I understand it and Roger Christie understands it, and our lifelong commitment to learning, contemplating and sharing the love and apprciation we feel in our hearts for the Cannabis plant forces us to reject government the presupposed unaccountable jurisdiction of any court over any natural resource which is BOTH unique and essential.

Cannabis isn't illegal. It's essential. Our forefathers didn't sacrifce so much for the freedom to complain. The economically biased, corporately corrupted U.S. court will force feed us all chemicals and problems because the solutions they sell are expensive, don't work, and the problems are endlessly profitable.

Aloha to all from the heart of my brother-in-spirit, Reverend Roger Christie. He has given generously from his heart, to the people of Hawaii and the world. It is now time for We the People to stand up and say once and for all time, love is the limit of law.

About the pot...

It's really not about the pot.

It's about our freedom to farm and the sincere & legitimate ancient spiritual traditions of agriculture. It's about healing the atmosphere while feeding hundreds of millions of starving people. It's about sustainable economics based in abundance. Conceding rightful jurisdiction over any "herb bearing seed" is sheer madness and violates the First Amendment like nothing else could.

Did you know that six American Presidents (Roosevelt, Truman, Eisenhower, Kennedy, Nixon, Clinton) have signed Executive Orders identifying "hemp" as critical to national security? Thomas Jefferson wrote that "Hemp is of first necessity to the wealth & protection of the country."

Nutritionally unique and essential, Cannabis seed is the only common seed with three essential fatty acids and is (potentially) the best available source of organic vegetable protein on Earth. Doesn't it make you wonder that the UNFAO doesn't even recognize the world's most complete food as fit for human consumption?

Hemp is also the only crop that produces a complete food and sustainable biofuels from the same harvest. Hemp also produces monoterpenes that mitigate climate imbalances through radiative forcing.

Reverend Roger Christie, founder of the THC Ministry in Hawaii is recently incarcerated, selectively targeted for standing up for everyone's spiritual freedom right now. It would help to let people know this is happening.

"First Freedom" -- An Open Letter to the Department of Justice

Dear Mr. Treene,

Perhaps you are aware that Reverend Roger Christie is in jail in Hawaii. I am writing to engage the assistance of your office to effect his immediate release.

Reverend Christie is being selectively prosecuted as a leader in the public effort to recognize the legitimate, historically significant religious dimensions of mankind's relationship with the Cannabis plant. In fact, Cannabis use by humans predates organized religion. Marijuana and other psychotropic plants have been recognized as foundational catalysts for human spiritual evolution.

The DEA is protecting corporate interests by violating our "First Freedom" as a tactic of intimidation, part of a campaign to mislead the American public about the definition of industrial hemp. This is clearly a threat to national security. A search for "hemp" on the DEA website produces a page which is full of misleading inaccuracies. For example

"“Hemp” is part of the cannabis plant, which is also known as marijuana."
"“...hemp” is not a term that is found in federal law."

DEA Clarifies Status of Hemp in the Federal Register, October 9, 2001.

In truth, six American Presidents have signed Executive Orders identifying "hemp" as a "strategic resource" that is critical to national security. Roosevelt, Truman, Eisenhower, Kennedy, Nixon and Clinton are in agreement with Thomas Jefferson who wrote:

"Hemp is of first necessity to the wealth & protection of the country."
-Thomas Jefferson

It is clearly a "misprision of treason" to fail in recognizing the known value of hemp. Each spring planting season that passes is gone forever. Time is the only thing we can't make more of.

I invite the DOJ to participate in defense of the U.S. Constitution and national security. Please let me know how I may assist you in resolving this injustice as expeditiously as possible.

Sincerely yours,

Paul J. von Hartmann

Reverend Roger Christie was arrested in Hawaii today.


Arresting Roger Christie is thuggish -- more of the same from our military industrial corporate chemical government, that shoots innocents with drones; induces birth defects for generations using depleted uranium munitions; bankrupts our country then rewards the guilty bankers; pokes a gaping petroleum wound into the Gulf of Mexico; "fraks" our water supplies; and engenders a two trillion dollar black market while creating essential resource scarcity in the world by banning industrial hemp agriculture.

Reverend Christie is a long-time friend and a fellow Cannabis minister. I can tell you that Rev Roger is as sincere as any priest and beautifully honorable in his desire to make this world a better place. Roger's the kind of person who would pull over on the highway to help you if you were stranded. I trust & envision that he will be released soon, unharmed.

To arrest a minister of the world's oldest global culture is a shameless attack at the foundations of all religions, a blatant violation of the separation between church and state, and an environmental catastrophe that potentiates global extinction. And, oh by the way, arresting Reverend Christie is also a victory for the meth market as the pakalolo prices will inevitably rise.

The incumbent outlaw regime that controls the political landscape has made a serious mistake. Inviting in the Court of Public Opinion ignores the fact that government has failed to do other than create problems with the counter-productive, anti-Constitutional, selective and hypocritical so-called "drug war." If we don't help Roger and the other people whose First Amendment rights are being trampled, then that's a serious indication we are beyond hope for a livable future.

People know how valuable Cannabis is. Decades of Hempfests and research have revaluated the world's most nutritious and useful, environmentally beneficial, potentially abundant, agronomically essential, globally distributed "strategic" "herb bearing seed." Yet another growing season has passed without the United States planting the world's most valuable agricultural resource.

Polls indicate progressive views on the subject of marijuana and hemp are in the majority. The wave has broken on the lie of "Reefer Madness." Cannabis isn't illegal, it's essential. And time, the limiting factor in the equation of survival, is the only thing we can't make more of.

People better stand up now, for religious freedom. Otherwise, we'll lose the strongest, most direct link we have left to our civil liberties. A person's individual spiritual evolution does not need permission to exist from any court.

Any government that doesn't honor the Golden Rule is an outlaw. "Do unto others..." is being blatantly violated by your government. We the People had best respond with strength and resolve. I'm looking for a sponsor to cover my expenses in helping Roger, if anyone out there can help me help you help everyone.

Please do what you can to viralize this post:

Free Roger Christie now.

Dolphin Economics 101 -- Believe It? Support it.

Asking for financial help is the hardest thing for me to do. I'm going to do it now though because dolphin economics works that way:

You help me help you help everyone...

If we don't make the shift to agricultural abundance soon, then the environment will not sustain life on this planet. Because several global atmosphere changes are leading us all to predictable if not inevitable global extinction, mankind's role in a functional ecosystem at this point in time is to actively farm Cannabis for fuel and food in as many bioregions of the Earth as possible, as quickly as we can.

If a spiritual connection between agriculture and mankind still exists, then our freedom to farm is the first test of religious freedom. The First Amendment is all that's needed to immediately transcend hemp prohibition. I've written the State Attorney General's office at least three times regarding the "strategic" stature of Cannabis agriculture, and have received no reply.

Local hemp advocate petitions to address Attorney General

If you believe that our right to grow the world's most nutritious plant has never been within the rightful jurisdiction of any court, then please support my effort to end the prohibition of Cannabis hemp in time to plant in California this summer. We must begin investigating the short season in California. To miss this opportunity would be a tragedy of incredible proportion and consequence.

I am willing to stand up and take responsibility for the true value of Cannabis. I have twenty years of research, writing, photographs, film and editorial illustrations. I have ten years of international experience in the European hemp industry.

First, I have to go to Sacramento for a week and exercise essential civilian demand. Then we need to get seed and put it in the ground. Acclimatization of seed stock is critical to the success of ending our addiction to fossil fuels, increasing food security & nutrition and ending the drug war.

Please send whatever support you can to help make this happen.

I've also been invited to speak at Seattle Hempfest this year. I am seeking sponsors to help make that happen.
