Marijuana isn’t legal in California for recreational purposes… yet. There’s a ballot referendum that will *probably* get passed in the November election. But the law is still pretty clear in Cali about what constitutes legal use of the cannabis plant, so you best have a medical marijuana card.
Which brings us to these nuns. These nuns are gansta as fuck. In an interview with The Denver Channel, Sister Kate and Sister Darcy openly admit that their lucrative suburban California grow operation is completely illegal:
Everything we’re doing is illegal. Those plants you just saw in my garage; they’re illegal. The making of the salves is illegal.
I’m scared. I’m nervous. I’m not confident… I guess I’m confident from the standpoint of right will win at the end. But, I don’t know how long that’s going to take.
Sister Kate and Sister Darcy aren’t your typical Catholic nuns who tailgate for the Pope. They’re absurdist nuns. Sister Kate says she declared herself a nun and “devoted her life to cannabis” when Congress declared pizza a vegetable. Their core “belief” is in the healing power of weed, much like your friend in college who got really into Bob Marley and reading Kurt Vonnegut novels in college. Instead of growing dreadlocks and wearing tie-dye, they wear nun outfits.
They now sell cannabis salves and tinctures on Etsy, which — according to the interview above — brings in $400,000 a year.
I’m still shocked they openly admit how illegal their operation is for a television interview. Depending on law enforcement’s temperature about a group of ladies brazenly thumbing their noses at the system, I have a hunch they won’t be in the drug dealing game very long.
Hopefully someday they can go about their stoner nun lives legally.
