Cannabis Chassidis : The Ancient and Emerging Torah of Drugs
by Yosef Leib ibn Mardachya


Overview - Is Marijuana kosher? Yes, of course it is. But the better question is: If I am going to get higher than high, isn't there some useful, traditional guidance about how to best do so? If not, then what good is the Torah?


Join Yosef Leib on his travels and studies throughout Jerusalem, New York, and Rainbow Country, U.S.A., in search of guidance about how Cannabis and psychedelics have and have not been used in both ancient and emerging Hassidic traditions, and what the way we have related to our desires for medicines, gods and intoxicants can teach us about how we relate to ourselves, our community, and our G-d.  Read more...

Overview
Is Marijuana kosher? Yes, of course it is. But the better question is: If I am going to get higher than high, isn't there some useful, traditional guidance about how to best do so? If not, then what good is the Torah?


Join Yosef Leib on his travels and studies throughout Jerusalem, New York, and Rainbow Country, U.S.A., in search of guidance about how Cannabis and psychedelics have and have not been used in both ancient and emerging Hassidic traditions, and what the way we have related to our desires for medicines, gods and intoxicants can teach us about how we relate to ourselves, our community, and our G-d. The glorious problem of how what we can learn can set us free, in all kinds of ways.


Chassidis, ("kind-ness") means the way to do all the things we love doing, better, as if any other way was acceptable. Cannabis Chassidis is the way to smoke weed like a mench; to be able to feel the pleasure of understanding secrets, and ground the wisdom that is only received from high places of sublime peace.


But this book is not just for the Jews, or the Stoners. It is made to be accessible, useful and fascinating to anyone interested in theology, history, culture, psychedelics, or just good literature, whether they smoke marijuana or practice a western religion, or not. The question of What Jerusalem Means mystifies many people, along with the question of what justifies a religion, and what makes it, or any other structure, ultimately worth hitting, or passing.
