A bunch of California nuns are selling illegal weed with  no plans to give up the drug hustle. The women of the Sister of the Valley are proudly breaking the law with their mail order marijuana business run through Etsy.

Reports The Grio:

The Sisters of the Valley found themselves in an interesting predicament when the state laws that were sent to take place at the beginning of March and were meant to make laws more lenient for marijuana users and producers were not enforced, prompting many areas to enact emergency marijuana laws.

But according to Mike Conway, Merced city spokesman, the city of Merced, California, is not going to enforce the bans until a final decision is made on the matter, so the Sisters of the Valley are continuing to run their successful mail-order Etsy business.

“Everything we are doing is illegal,” said Sister Kate, who leads the Sisters of the Valley. “Those plants you just saw in my garage…they’re illegal. The salves, the batch we’re about to show you, is illegal. Yes, everything is illegal.”

It should be noted that the nuns are not Catholic but have instead taken vows related to marijuana and its healing powers.

A message at the bottom of the nuns’ website states that their products haven’t been approved by the FDA, “and are not intended to diagnose, treat or cure any disease.”
