New Website (ShaiviteTemple.org)

I created a new website, so I may post things on this blog every once in a while, but I will mainly be posting on the new Website.

I am breeding a THCv Marijuana Strain, the first seeds will be read in 2 Months from this Friday (2 days from today). So the website will have all of that. We will also be teaching people how to make hash, and we will be proving PDFs for various Historical and Religious Texts from around the world for Free so that people can access them through our Website. We will have various teachings on there as well, involving everything from Religion, History and Law, to Chemistry and Neuroscience. We will also be giving away Free Seeds from the strains we create, and Organizing gatherings for people to Trade Strains and meet up.

So here is the New Website, it will grow over the next year and will eventually become larger than both of my blogs; and it won't take long. I am going to be breeding these strains, as well as going to conventions and 4/20 rallies, and traveling to places like Mexico and Armenia. So all of that will be on the Website.





Colorado Marijuana Legislation

Colorado did something different than other States, Colorado added Marijuana Legalization to its Constitution. Marijuana is not just “Regulated” in Colorado, it is a Right. Every Citizen of Colorado 21 and over, has a right to grow 6 plants per person over 21; according to the Colorado State Constitution.

Colorado Marijuana Code

The Colorado Marijuana Code completely ignores Religion though, as it has not been brought up yet in this Context.

Colorado State Constitution
Article XVIII
Amendment 64
(1)
(a) IN THE INTEREST OF THE EFFICIENT USE OF LAW ENFORCEMENT RESOURCES, ENHANCING REVENUE FOR PUBLIC PURPOSES, AND INDIVIDUAL FREEDOM, THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF COLORADO FIND AND DECLARE THAT THE USE OF MARIJUANA SHOULD BE LEGAL FOR PERSONS TWENTY-ONE YEARS OF AGE OR OLDER AND TAXED IN A MANNER SIMILAR TO ALCOHOL.

(2)
Definitions.
AS USED IN THIS SECTION, UNLESS THE CONTEXT OTHERWISE REQUIRES,

(h) “MARIJUANA CULTIVATION FACILITY” MEANS AN ENTITY LICENSED TO CULTIVATE, PREPARE, AND PACKAGE MARIJUANA AND SELL MARIJUANA TO RETAIL MARIJUANA STORES, TO MARIJUANA PRODUCT MANUFACTURING FACILITIES, AND TO OTHER MARIJUANA CULTIVATION FACILITIES, BUT NOT TO CONSUMERS.

(i) “MARIJUANA ESTABLISHMENT” MEANS A MARIJUANA CULTIVATION FACILITY, A MARIJUANA TESTING FACILITY, A MARIJUANA PRODUCT MANUFACTURING FACILITY, OR A RETAIL MARIJUANA STORE.

(m) “MEDICAL MARIJUANA CENTER” MEANS AN ENTITY LICENSED BY A STATE AGENCY TO SELL MARIJUANA AND MARIJUANA PRODUCTS PURSUANT TO SECTION 14 OF THIS ARTICLE AND THE COLORADO MEDICAL MARIJUANA CODE.

Notice that is says that it should be Regulated like Alcohol, in accordance with the will of the people of Colorado, so here is the Colorado Alcohol Code’s rules about Religion.

Colorado Alcohol Code

ARTICLE 47, TITLE 12, C.R.S.
Part I- General Provisions
12-47-106
Exemptions.
(1)
The provisions of this article shall not apply to the sale or distribution of sacramental wines sold and used for religious purposes.

And in the Federal Code right now, there is a Tax Exemption for Cider that is Produced and Sold without Bubbles and not called Wine. It can be found under USC Title 26, S 5042, (a), (1).

If Marijuana is going to be Regulated like Alcohol, then Sale, Distribution and Use of Religious Marijuana can not be taxed. And this is not even a stretch to say that Religion should not be taxed, that is simply the way it works. The case Walz v. Tax Comm’n of City of New York 397 U.S. 664 (1970), set the standard that has since then been followed.
https://supreme.justia.com/cases/federal/us/397/664/case.html

And if we look at the Volstead Act, the Act of Congress which made Alcohol Prohibition (the 18th Amendment) an actual Enforced Law; the Volstead Act included Religious Exemptions for Alcohol use. You can not stop people from using their Sacraments, Celebrating their Festivals, and Consuming the Body of their Lords and Saviors.
http://mdk12.msde.maryland.gov/instruction/curriculum/social_studies/ne/ne_volstead.pdf

And we all know about the 1st Amendment Religious Protections, but with all this other Evidence that shouldn’t even be necessary to bring up.

Now that Texas has Legalized Medical Marijuana, they have forsaken the argument against Religious Marijuana. And it’s not just Texas, the Federal Government, including the DEA has done the same in cases like Gonzales V O Centro through DEA form 225. Because DEA form 225 exists for Corporate Entities to use, Religions are now Free to do the same without DEA form 225.


Texas Bill of Rights


Sec. 6. FREEDOM OF WORSHIP.
All men have a natural and indefeasible right to worship Almighty God according to the dictates of their own consciences. No man shall be compelled to attend, erect or support any place of worship, or to maintain any ministry against his consent. No human authority ought, in any case whatever, to control or interfere with the rights of conscience in matters of religion, and no preference shall ever be given by law to any religious society or mode of worship. But it shall be the duty of the Legislature to pass such laws as may be necessary to protect equally every religious denomination in the peaceable enjoyment of its own mode of public worship.


Texas Religious Freedom Restoration Act


ec. 110.001. DEFINITIONS. (a) In this chapter:

Intro to Federalism

The United States was founded on a Revolution. Many people believed that Thomas Jefferson was an Anarchist, because he created moments of Anarchy, but in the end he helped create a “More Perfect Union”. The Revolution most people think of when they think of Revolution is a Communist Revolution, or the Counter Revolutions to the Communist Revolutions; and that is because the Communist Manifesto is relatively new in terms of Human History. But Revolutions have previously not been about Communism, and a Proletariat class V a class of Capitalist or Feudalistic self indulgent overlords who actually spend time thinking of ways to make the Proletariat do more for less. Most Revolutions were about Liberty, and were based on ideas similar to the of Plato’s Republic. The Liberty Cap and Liberty Pole (also called the Phyrgian Cap) is a common symbol in this form of Revolution, and Assassination is a common theme in this form of Revolution (“Sic Semper Tyranus” or “As Always to Tyrants”).
Federalism is the idea behind the United States Constitution. The idea that we are Voluntarily Governed, and that there is no “Ruling Class” in this Country, no one is in charge here, and anyone can be taken out of office (no Assassination necessary). The idea that there are 3 Competing Branches of Government in the Congress, President and Supreme Court. The Acknowledgement that no one is probably right when it comes to Politics, and Religion, and anything like that, so we will have a Government that Acknowledges all the Factions within the Country, and works to make everything as equal as it can for all of them. An example of how far we have strayed from this concept is that we can’t figure out how to teach Shias and Sunnis anything about this concept, and we seem to think it is just all about Voting and Democracy. Republicans and Democrats are Factions; they don’t do anything that lasts Centuries and they may even be the downfall of America. Classical and Neo-Conservatism and Classical and Neo-Liberalism completely Hijacked this country, Abraham Lincoln may have called himself a Republican; but he was a Federalist who preserved the Union; and now we have a “State of the Union Address”.
This Paper linked about is called “Slicing the American Pie” and it is about Federalism V Personal Law Systems. So Federalism is not just a random 3rd ideology in America, like Greens or Libertarians. Federalism is literally the Legal System we operate under as a Nation. The Paper explains the 2 systems, and I will summarize here. The best way to explain Federalism is to first explain the Personal Law System. In a Country where there is Personal Law, like India, every Religion has their own rights; for example, in India Muslims are allowed to have multiple wives, but Christians aren’t. In America the State is the “Personal” part. Colorado Law is different than Texas Law is different than New York Law is different than California Law, but they all Submit to the Constitution and the Supreme Court.
Most people don’t realize this but there are actually 3 forms of Law:
First is Fundamental Law, this is the Constitution which sets up the Rules for President and Courts and Congress, the Constitution is the thing that makes those people have a job. Without the Constitution you have no Contract with those people, and if they violate the Contract it can be invalidated and replaced.
Then there is Statutory Law, this is the Law that the Constitution says Congress can write, such as Law for “Commerce between the States, Indian Tribes and Foreign Nations”. The Controlled Substances Act, or the Patriot Act, or other Acts of Congress like that are what create “Statutory Law”, which is then Codified into the USC.
And last, but absolutely not least, is Case Law. This is the real Law. The Constitution may say something, but you may not interpret it the same as the Supreme Court, because they have been seeing cases for about 300 years now, and have been seeing situations in which the Constitution becomes more clearly defined in their eyes, and it gets passed down into case law.
The reason it seems to most people like your lawyer doesn’t do much and the Judge just makes Arbitrary decisions is because it takes time and effort to go through the years and years of Case Law, and actually find out if there is an argument for your Case. Your lawyer would much rather just look at what happened in that County, over the past 5 years or so, and just go based on that, and not deal with it any further, and you pay him. And maybe he’ll try to see if the Judge will answer a motion to Dismiss if you are lucky and got a good lawyer. If these layers would actually put in the effort to read all those books on the shelves in their office, from Cover to Cover, highlighting all the stuff they found to be profound; we would have a much better legal system.
Look up “Writ Writers”. Every lawyer should be able to write a Writ, but almost every single Writ Writer in America started as a Jailhouse Lawyer. Meaning: someone who was in Jail and learned the Law there, and not from ever stepping foot in a Law School. If you look up “Writ Writers” on Google it is going to bring up a bunch of stuff about people who learned Law from inside Jail.

Nation Building: Definition

Common Heritage of Mankind– something that no one can really own, but everyone can use. Examples are the Ocean and Space.
Sealand (A Real Country)
Embassy or Diplomatic Mission– a group of people from one State/Country, who own land in another State/Country, and work to establish treaties and accomplish goals in that Country/State. Once the Diplomatic mission establishes permanency it becomes an Embassy and the head of the Embassy is considered the Ambassador. Embassy can also just refer to the building or office that the Diplomatic mission is operating from. Once a Treaty has been signed with a recognized Nation, a Nation becomes a Recognized Nation. For example, the United States was first Recognized in a Treaty with Britain, then in a Treaty with Morocco, and that is how the United States first became Recognized as a Nation.
Tribe– the societies that exist outside of States. The State is equal to the Greek Polis, with its own sovereignty, and ability to join other states in a Union, League, etc. The people come together at the Agora (Capitol Hill in America) to make decisions, this is the state. Tribes are much more loosely governed. Tribes can be a collection of families, or a collection of religious groups, etc. and usually have some form of leader, either chosen based on the Tribes specialty (the best Hunter, or the best Warrior, or the Best Artisan, or the Oldest, etc) or by Heritage, Vote or Circumstance. Tribes who have Treaties with Governments are usually recognized as their own form of Government.
Club– a collection of 2 or more people that have come together for some common purpose. A Community is similar, except that it is a looser organization, and usually they just have the same values, not necessarily the same or even similar goals.
Gang– any group of friends or a family unit that has a leader. For example, if there is a military family who all look up to 1 Grandpa figure who first joined the Military and started a tradition, that is a form of Gang. It is not an Organized Crime Gang, but it is a form of Gang. Gangs were originally just groups of people that would brawl over turf, kind of like in the Outsiders book, but then eventually people started buying Guns, then the FBI did the COINTELPRO to bring down the black community and disorganize the legitimate groups, and in the 70s Crack and Heroine got big, and now everyone thinks of Gangs the way they do now.
Village– smaller than towns, and are not necessarily Incorporated. Depending on the State, a Village can just be a town that has formed with its own Government Body, but a smaller population than a town.
Township– the most basic form of Town. In America there are 2 forms of Townships, a Survey Township and a Civil Township. A Survey Township is just a unit of land that has been measured properly by a Surveyor, a Civil township operates like a County, in some states they are treated like a regular “Incorporation” type town. Civil Townships exist in 20 of the 50 states.
Town– incorporated and follows State laws to form.
City– just a big town in most places.
County– Administrative divisions designated by a state.

The Marijuana Breeding Program


Here is the Breeding Program for the Temple.

We are using Hindu Kush, Banana Crack, Strawberry Stardawg, Strawberry Diesel, South African Kwazulu, Malawi, and a few other strains, such as the Colorado only Danky Kong, which was created in Colorado and has not really spread everywhere yet.

The decision behind the strain selection was not random, we are not just making our own Strain, we are making a Strain that is not like any other strain. In order to explain this in context, a few things need to be explain. First, you have probably heard of “Kush” Strains, and if you haven’t, you just read about one here in the Hindu Kush Strain, which is actually the best example; because, Kush Strains come from the Hindu Kush Mountains, the word “Ganja” comes from the Ganges River, and the word “Indica” means “From India”. And there are strains from all over the world, but the first seeds were thought to be carried by humans from the Hindu Kush Mountains. Everyone has heard of Skunk, which is another strain, which birthed the UK Cheese Strain. Then there are the US Strains, like Trainwreck (not a landrace), and OG Kush (not a landrace), etc, and the OG Kush, Tahoe OG variant (not a landrace). There are Central and South American Strains that are mostly Sativas, like Acapulco Gold, and Colombian Gold, and the Amazonian Indica (a landrace Indica is rarity in American strains). Then there are the Rudaralis, which are not Indica or Sativa, but a 3rd Strain that grew up in the cold areas around Russia and China, and they do not use the Sun to determine flowering season, but a time-frame. These can be mixed with Indicas and Sativas, which creates “Autoflower” strains. Then strains like White Widow were made from Brazilian landrace combined with Thailand landrace, and strains like White Rhino, White Russian, etc, were made from White Widow. Same with Bubblegum, and all those. And last on this list, but definitely not least is African Strains. When the British and Dutch ruled India, it seems that seeds from Asia made their way to Amsterdam and eventually made their way to America; but African strains have not really made their way out of Africa. Durban Poison, a South African Strain, is the only Strain that has really spread around, but this is also because of the British connections to South Africa. So there are a ton of African Strains that no one is really using; and when they do use them, they don’t breed them, and when they do breed them, they Generally breed them with each other, or just once with another plant, not a whole Breeding Program.

So, before I explain the actual Breeding Program I need to explain 2 things. 1st THCv and 2nd Terpenes. First, THCv is a rare Cannabinoid. THC is the most common, along with its variants (THCa, Delta-9-THC, etc), but recently CBD has become popular, and people have begun breeding CBD strains the same way they breed THC Strains. White Widow is called that because it is covered in Crystals, and that was new for the 70s or 80s or whenever it was bred. Then White Russian became the Highest THC strain for a while, and now just about every year a new strain comes out with a higher THC content than the highest one last year. And they are beginning to do this with CBD also, but literally no one but the Shaivite Temple is doing this with THCv. We are breeding African Strains in order to create a tradition of higher and higher THCv content every year. Then there are Terpenes, we are using strains like Banana Crack and Strawberry Stardawg and Strawberry Diesel in order to create strains with more Terpenes. Terpenes are the Smells and Flavors that are the make up each Strain’s smell, and are what makes Sativa and Indica different in effect; because their main ingredient is THC, so the differences come from the other substances present in the plant. And because Durban Poison has been combined with other strains to create great flavors (Cherry Pie is Durban X Grandaddy Purp; Girl Scout Cookies is Durban F1 X OG Kush), mixing African Strains with strains that are already known for having great flavors, should bring out better flavors.

So here is the breeding program:

With “A” being “African Strains”
With “B” being “Aromatic Strains”
With “C” being “Commercial Strains” (Hazes, Kushes, White X, Skunks, Diesels, Cheeses, etc)

A X B X C
or
B X A X C
or
C X A X B

Then

(A X B X C) X (A X B X C)
or
(A X B X C) X (B X A X C)
or
(A X B X C) X (C X A X B)
etc
etc

And during that part, we may also cross in more pure As and Bs, so something like.

((A X B X C) X A) X (A X B X C)

This is our breeding program, and we will be giving away free clones and seeds all along the way, and when we are finished.
