Using Drugs For Religious Purposes Is Bogus

Trevor Douglas, 25, told a court that he uses marijuana as a religious sacrament.

Give me a break.

Recently, Mr. Douglas was arrested by a Colorado State trooper during a routine traffic stop. During the stop, the officer smelled pot and Mr. Douglas got the cuff.

The court got this one right. Using pot for personal use does not meet the definition of religious practice. Thus, under the law, Mr. Douglas' marijuana use is not protected by First Amendment rights.

Instead, it is simply drug use and its illegal in Colorado.
