"An ultra-Orthodox rabbi announced an addition to the list of substances approved as kosher for Passover: medical marijuana.
Rabbi Chaim Kanievsky, a Belarusian rabbi living in Bnei Brak, Israel, responded to a question from pro-marijuana group Siach with a confirmation that medical marijuana is kosher to be smoked or eaten during the eight-day Passover festival, which has its own set of dietary rules."
Recreational marijuana is kosher for any high holy holiday: Passover, Christmas, Easter or April 20, stoners don`t need the blessing of a rabbi before partaking of the holy weed.
But it`s gratifying to witness a religious leader extol the spiritual and physical benefits of smoking weed.
I could never imagine an anal-retentive televangelist like Pat Robertson saying a blessing over a bong.
This video depicts Kanievsky and Rabbi Yitzchak Zilberstein declaring some marijuana leaves to have a healing smell and saying a blessing over the plant.
Wouldn`t it be great if a cop who detected the aroma of marijuana in your house declared "this abode has a healing smell" and said a blessing over your house instead of arresting you?
Shalom and pass me the bong!
