So much for using marijuana as Karpas. Yes, it’s leafy and yes, it’s green. But apparently, hemp seeds are not kosher for Passover. That is, if you’re Ashkenazi. The seeds belong to a limbo category of growing things called “kitniyot,” so if your seder has beans and rice, feel free to put the “Yes I Can” in cannabis this Festival of Freedom. Except for that whole “pot is still illegal” thing. If you’re one to think that cannabis is no more harmful than alcohol and you find yourself frequently smoking, you might want to look into new ways to smoke your pot, try looking at these weed pipes. There are so many different weed pipes that are available out there to those who are interested in cannabis for either medical or recreational reasons. Luckily there are companies similar to glass pipes uk that might be a good place to get a pipe.
Still, where there’s a will, there’s a way…and clearly this is an issue that many people are passionate about, since I just got an email from Hillel about this, and blogs are also taking this issue seriously. For those interested in taking another hit off the informational bong, I highly recommend this JTA report on the issue.
