I like the George Carlin quote about paying taxes for chruches
"I don't know how you feel, but I'm pretty sick of church people. You know what they ought to do with churches? Tax them. If holy people are so interested in politics, government, and public policy, let them pay the price of admission like everybody else. The Catholic Church alone could wipe out the national debt if all you did was tax their real estate.”
And when some states even ban atheists to hold public office, this is a problem, they wanna help introduce laws that are religious based and effect other people that are not religious then they should be paying taxes
and about the church groups helping people, theres also atheist organizations that do the same thing, helping others doesn't belong to the church...
In CA, correct me if I am wrong, licensed growers can only have 5 plants at a time. People get together and pool their licenses for a farm. Except they bend the rules and dare the feds to do something.
Anyway what is your address?
Also, did you need to add the "rural" in front on Sampson Co.???
California State Senate Bill 420 authorizes card-holding medical marijuana users to possess up to six (6) mature plants, twelve (12) immature plants, and eight ounces (8 oz.) of dried cannabis. (Some counties allow more. For instance, San Diego medical marijuana users may keep up to one pound (1 lb.) of cannabis and twenty-four (24) indoor plants.)
they have been doing the same thing for 'poor people' with subsidies offered for things like vicodin, percocet, adderall, xanax etc which are all EXTREMELY more dangerous and addictive than weed is, and most put people in some what of a stupor...the only reason this is even news is because its "shocking" to some people and it's new with medical marijuana in D.C.
