Welcome to the first online Cantheist assembly.

Everything required to show religious cannabis use is downloadable freely.

"We use cannabis to relax our consciousness and allow our sub conscious to reach a state of meditation thus allowing us to improve as human beings and enhance our understanding of the essence of the living universe."© Cannabis Assembly, Sept 2004


Under EU & UN law, this is legal

but not proven... yet.

We began to inform the UK government of our religious use and cultivation of cannabis in September 2004. The Prime Minister, a procession of Home Secretaries, the Office of Constitutional Affairs, and the Queen, have full knowledge of our activities, but no prosecutions have ever been brought. This in itself may be considered a victory over the stupidity of prohibition by some but without our case being heard in a court of law the government leave Cantheists living with the fear of prosecution and possible imprisonment simply for practicing their chosen religion, which is not acceptable morally or under UN and EU law.

So what's this all about?

Have you heard of 'Hemp'? It's a very tough plant that will grow almost anywhere outside the polar regions, and requires no herbicides or pesticides. It's fibre is three times stronger than cotton, more absorbent, warmer, and tougher. It can be used to make plastic, paint, and to build eco-friendly housing. One acre of hemp will make as much paper as over four acres of trees. Hemp seed oil is lower in saturated fat than any other vegetable oil and one of the most complete vegetable proteins known. For over 10,000 years it's been used in medicines and religious rituals. So why are our fields not overflowing with this most abundant herb? Because it's other name is Cannabis.

Without the need of pharmaceutical processing cannabis can aid the sufferers of Multiple Sclerosis, AIDS, Cancer, Brain Tumours, Arthritis, Glaucoma, Stroke, Nausea, Asthma, Epilepsy, Insomnia, Depression, Chronic Pain, Migraine and many other disorders. But, whilst allowing pharmaceutical companies to rape our sacred herb for any profit which may be made, our leaders still insist it has no medical value and prosecute those who dare to give it freely as a medicine, such as THC4MS and BudBuddies.

We believe the Cannabis Hemp plant is sacred. We believe no authority on Earth has the right to prevent us from growing and using any God given plant that relieves pain and brings peace. The Herb is part of our religion and international law guarantees our right to religious freedom. Together we are fighting to give The Herb back to the people. Religious use of cannabis is legal under international law and we are going to prove it.
