Oy!

Bad news from Reuters....

JERUSALEM (Reuters) - Marijuana is not kosher for Passover, a pro-cannabis advocacy group says, advising Jews who observe the week-long holiday's special dietary laws to take a break from smoking the weed.

The Green Leaf Party announced Wednesday that products of the cannabis plant have been grouped by rabbis within a family of foods such as peas, beans and lentils that is off-limits to Jews of European descent during Passover.


Actually, I'm not sure it's kosher any time unless grown under rabbinic supervision.

That gives me an idea, but we probably shouldn't go there....
