Home > drug war, New York City > Grass-over


For those Serf City readers of the Jewish persuasion, be advised that you’ll need to dispose of the kind along with the chometz before sundown Monday:

“Marijuana is not kosher for Passover, a pro-cannabis advocacy group says, advising Jews who observe the week-long holiday’s special dietary laws to take a break from smoking the weed.The Green Leaf Party announced Wednesday that products of the cannabis plant have been grouped by rabbis within a family of foods such as peas, beans and lentils that is off-limits to Jews of European descent during Passover.The Green Leaf Party, which has made several unsuccessful attempts to win election to parliament on a platform urging marijuana’s legalisation, said it was issuing its advisory as a service to Jews who don’t want to break ritual law.”

In my ‘hood on the lower east side, it’s a pre-Passover tradition to burn all the chometz (leavened bread) in steel barrels along Grand Street. If any of my neighbors need help, um, burning their stash before the holiday, please don’t hesitate to call.

    No, the kids crowded us out of our Yorkville pad, so we had to upgrade to a 3-bedroom downtown.
