Nuns Growing And Selling Weed As Part Of Their Holy Mission
‘Chill sister’ is not something you would have to say to the nuns of Sisters of the Valley. They’ve become famous for their… horticultural operation, where they grow and sell medical marijuana products. Of course.
Photographers Shaughn Crawford and John DuBois got the chance to document the holy operation of Sisters, who actually do not consider themselves Catholic or traditionally religious. What they do believe in is: “working to bridge the gap between Earth and her suffering people.” They’re doing it by cultivating weed according to the moon cycles and turning their harvest into remedies.
Their organic products treat a variety of conditions including back pain, migraines and even hangovers. Each jar also gets its own little prayer before it ends up in Sisters’ online store.
Before you report them, know that they are a licensed medical marijuana growers in California’s Central Valley. But it might not stay legal for long, as the government is now considering a ban on such operations. Of course, these nuns won’t go down without a fight.
