Legal Cases? in General Board Posted April 12, 2011 · Report reply I apologize, Jl. I appreciate your concerns about bar status, and therefore very much appreciate your willingness to participate here at all. As I recall, there was a "church" in the 1960s, referred to as the Boo-Hoos as I recall, that declared the taking of LSD as one of its sacraments. A District Court judge rejected its claim to the religious exemption. Long time ago, but then, I was roughly your age back then. I'll bet if one were to read the case, what one would see is that the judge didn't like this "church" (one of whose tenets had something to do with the need to blow up Saturn before it was too late) or its nasty drug practices (big on marijuana, too), and so he found a way to reject an exemption claim that perhaps should have held up. Just as an additional point, it would seem from what you say (which I don't doubt) that "we" wouldn't actually have to form a "church" at all, but each person could just assert his/her private religious commitment to psilo or acid as part of a religious belief system. Probably get the Boo Hoo outcome either way, though.
