PennCo 'christian naturalist' arguing religious freedom in cannabis case

Intersecting with Rep./Rev. Steve Hickey's ignorance of how people have sex comes this West River story:
Zephaniah Thompson flips through his Bible. He is a Christian Naturalist. "I believe that everything that god put upon this earth that is seeded and fertile is here for our use and our purposes," said Thompson. Thompson was recently charged with possession of marijuana and he says he shouldn't be due to his religious beliefs. ["]What that means is a law that applies to everybody, somebody saying because of my religion that law doesn't apply to me," said David Patton, Thompson's attorney. ["]This is a free exercise of religion case plain and simple," said Patton. [Robyn Estabrook, KOTA teevee]
