BBC: California’s cannabis-growing nuns pray for profits

The BBC  Reports

Merced County sits in the middle of California’s Central Valley.

For as far as the eye can see, there are identical rows of crops, with the occasional farmhouse or family home.

One of these homes looks unassuming from the outside.

There’s nothing unusual about the building or the land around it, except that there’s a small group of women, wearing pristine white habits, burning incense, and singing hymns as they walk in step blessing their cannabis plants.

These women are the “Sisters of the Valley,” better known as the Weed Nuns.

Lead by Sister Kate, the women are members of a self-proclaimed enclave of nuns who identify as healers and feminists, but more importantly, business people. They do not represent an official religion.

“I chose an industry that is messed up,” Sister Kate says. “It’s going to probably be messed up and I’m probably going to have to do a lot of dancing and sidestepping.”
