    I start getting worried when one religious starts group get different treatment under the law than others do - If somethings against the law - it's aginst the law - if that conflicts with your beliefs - then that's unfortunate.

    It's nothing new really, members of the Native American Church have been allowed to use peyote for religious rituals for quite some time in several states and as of 1994 it is legal on a federal level for use in religious ceremonies.

    And that's why I think it's wrong - if you relax a law for one cultual/spiritual/ethnic group, you should really do it for all.

    If native americans groups can use halucinagenic drugs for their rituals then why can't rastifarians use drugs if their belief system allows it?

    Personally I wouldn't draw a distinction by simply treating all groups the same under the law and not alowing this kind of thing. The law should be apiled equally to all reguardless of creed, colour, or ethnic origin.

    I agree. If it's wrong for one, it's wrong for all.

    Ok, this is breaking 2 rules. No religious discussion and no political discussion. As ridiculous as it is, we can't allow it here.
