From the pages of the Arizona Daily Star:
The Quaintances face criminal charges of possessing more than 100 pounds of marijuana and of conspiracy to distribute it. They were arrested on Feb. 22, 2006, in Lordsburg, N.M.
The couple say they don’t grow their “sacrament” but rather rely on donations of it, which they pick up from church “couriers.” That’s what they say they were about to do when they were arrested.
The pair say they founded their Church of Cognizance in Pima â€” about 90 miles northeast of Tucson â€” in 1991. The church’s motto is: “With good thoughts, good words and good deeds, we honor marijuana; as the teacher, the provider, the protector.”
Here’s the best part of the article, kudos to writer Stephanie Innes for this:
Dan and Mary Quaintance had been scheduled to go on trial next Tuesday, but U.S. District Judge Judith C. Herrera granted them extra time to prepare.
See, they really meant to prepare for their court date, but it was such a hassle and then they just totally, like, forgot.
Random Thought: Do they use Pringles as communion wafers?
