    Holy Moses, WE HAVE WON ! Thank you, Rev. Christie for the positive affirmation.
    BUT please tell me what non-political means.
    I am running for Lt. Gov. under the FREE ENERGY PARTY
    and I am the only candidate (70+) who is talking about hemp.
    In Hawai’i the Gov. and Lt. Gov. candidates are not linked by party, which means there could be different parties as the head of state.
    Daniel H. Cunningham is the Founder and Gov. candidate for this new party – FREE ENERGY.

    I am very concerned about Roger Christie. I send positive vibes and better understanding of truth about marijuana. He does not need to be in there, it is illogical to prosecute a man of spiritual reasons, medicinal reasons, and BLAME to society.
    Even with him in prison right now, OUR country, OUR state still has many people suffering of low income, foreclosures, bankruptcy, and many more involved, leading to a NON caring society.
    Now with Roger Christie, as you can easily observe, truthfully, he is a honest, humble, positive, spiritual being. He had done no harm to others, he did not go ranting in public, he simply had people come for help to him. And he would meet our needs. He is a man of truth, knowledge and spirituality.
    How dare a society abolished a man for an herb of “medicinal purposes and uses” and scientifically proven. There are more concerns to be looking forward on like other drugs, crimes, education, employment opportunities, health care etc. When they focus on people like Roger, someone who is not a threat and of course if he indeed isn’t then why would there be so many people still supporting him and trying to sign a petition to get him out. Obviously this case haven’t been overly viewed based on only the defendants opinions “even if they’re federal government” but they did not have enough factual information premise regarding “his threat.” theory. It seems as if we do not have our constitutional right anymore regarding the fact that he is using marijuana spiritual reasons, also his whole working area, had nothing but information about the history, spiritual uses, and medicinal purposes. I am very sorry to hear he is locked up on some irrational decision, and I know the truth will be set free. It will only take a matter of time.

    IF the FEDs want to make this a better society than they should start acting like one!!!!!!!!!!!

    <3u roger, p.s. i only met you twice and you were a great guy and brought on no other information regarding your case!!! they're full of bullshit!!!!!! I hope i can be there for your case hearing as a volunteer witness. :) jah will never let you down. when your right from wrong.

    I pray that the Lord Jesus Christ is the center of your life and that you look to him for guidance. It is very difficult to educate true followers of Jesus Christ about the truth of cannabis. I have been in discussions with theological students, as well as Raphael Mechoulam, Israeli professor of Medicinal Chemistry and Natural Products at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem in Israel. You may already know that he was the first person to study THC.

    All I read above in the court documents is about bail and nothing about the defense to cultivate and possess cannabis. Can you please tell me your defense or is that confidential information at this stage?

    After email conversations with Dr. Mechoulam, I concur that there is no credible information to say that kaneh bosem is mistranslated as cannabis, therefore I see no traction to the sacrament defense.

    What I do see is the scripture that everyone oversimplifies and takes for granted and opposes inaccurately; that being Genesis 1:29 and it’s relation to Romans 14. God gave us all plants to consume (The Hebrew word oklah means food, meat, object of consumption); yes even Poison Ivy and Hemlock. There are medicinal properties to any plant that make them viable for consumption.

    I believe that this argument based on the First Amendment right to the Freedom of Religion and of Genesis 1:29 is a solid foundation without the need to depend on mistranslations that cannabis is a sacrament.

    I love you as a brother in Jesus Christ and I pray that the Lord guides you with the knowledge and wisdom that he granted to King Solomon.

    He completely dismisses the mistranslation that everyone talks about in Exodus 30:23, but does point out another overlooked point.

    Dear Gene Laratonda,

    I fail to see any theological problem associated with cannabis. It has
    nothing to do with Systematic Theology nor sound Christian doctrine.

    I have published my suggestion that PaNaG mentioned by Ezekiel Chapter
    27, verse 17 is cannabis. I’ll have the article send to you.

    TIMEOUT!!! Please clear something up for me. Which of the following tenets of the Christian faith do you NOT recognize and sincerely believe?

    1. There is only one God.
    2. Jesus is both God and man.
    3. God exists as a Trinity of persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
    4. Jesus rose from the dead physically.
    5. Salvation is by grace through faith.
    6. The gospel is the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus.
    7. Virgin Birth of Jesus – relates to incarnation of Christ as God and man.

    I don’t necessarily believe any of that. Maybe that’s how it is, maybe not. In my empirical understanding, optimally everyone is free to believe what they like, as long as they don’t harm anyone. “Salvation is by grace through faith” is a lot of ambiguity in one sentence. What about humility, tolerance and gratitude? Are those not essential disciplines on a Christian path? People find their way by observing your walk, not your talk.

    Help Free Roger Christie! and Reclaim the natural right to legitimate spiritual practice inherent to the Freedom to Farm “every herb bearing seed.”

    Greetings,

    Washington D.C. has medical marijuana since 1998. That means that marijuana has been accepted for medical use under federal law since 1998. Therefore marijuana cannot be in Schedule I because only those drugs not accepted for medical use under federal law can be in Schedule I. Since the DEA has refused to reschedule marijuana, it is therefore legally an unscheduled drug under federal law since 1998. But Rogers lying lawyers will not make that motion in court. So Roger suffers for all of us. God Bless him.

    One Love revtombrown

    The absolute gall of these bastards…in President O’bama’s home state, nonetheless. Perhaps that is why they are rubbing the minister’s nose in the ‘do-do’…because he hails from the President’s home state…from which the President has wholeheartedly acknowledged his participation in the sacrament of Cannabis, ignorant to its spiritual healing benefits as he may have been in his youth. But, now he is an adult and accountable. Absolute crock of bull-shit. What the f’ck is in the water in Hawaii that a federal district attorney for the State of Hawaii must bust a law abiding minister of cannabis…and, keep him imprisoned against his will, and against the will of his parishioners? This man’s constituency constitutes all territories east to the mainland, and runs through lands and corridors all the way to the steps of the White House in Washington, DC. Release him, if not already.

    Hello out there,

    Aloha. Our web guy Mike uploaded our/my final appeal brief earlier today, but I see that’s it’s hard to find. If you’d like to read it and or pass it along to others just search under “browse documents here” at the top of this page. It is filed under “June 2015”.

    All the best to you,

    Roger
