Marijuana may be illegal in a lot of places but not California, and a group of nuns in that US state have committed to growing, using and selling the plant in accordance with some sense of spiritual ordinance.
Nuns in an order called Sisters of the Valley in California have a rather interesting disposition to growing, using and selling their own marijuana because for them, it is a gift from God.
Now, admittedly, there is no verse in the Bible or any other religious scripture that speaks against marijuana, but these self-ordained nuns seem pretty unique.
According to a Facebook post YEN.com.gh sighted on Etiketa's Facebook page, the members of the Sisters of the Valley order are headquartered in California's Central Valley, where their mini weed empire is flourishing.

The Sisters are reportedly more spiritual than religious and more sensitive to the human condition than punitive.
They reportedly run a successful business, extolling the virtues of marijuana, all while living in a community of shared sisterhood.

The order was begun by one Sister Kate who moved from Wisconsin to California in 2009.
She and her brother started a marijuana collective called Caregrowers but over time, she was drawn to create types of marijuana that could give users the same health benefits without smoking.
After working with other women in the collective, Sister Kate found the need to create her order.
It does not seem the order is affiliated to the Catholic Church but that may matter little to Ghanaian observers who may refer to all nuns as "Roman sisters".
