Lawsuit seeking protected pot use for Kenwood's Oklevueha Native American Church dismissed


A Sonoma County-related lawsuit that attempted to establish the use of marijuana as a protected sacrament for use in religious ceremonies was tossed out in federal court this week.

The claim that Sonoma County sheriff’s officers destroyed sacramental marijuana plants belonging to a Kenwood church was dismissed after the attorney for the church failed to show up in federal court.

Two members of the Oklevueha Native American Church, which has a branch off Lawndale Road, claimed that sheriff’s deputies violated their civil rights by confiscating approximately 600 marijuana plants used in their religious ceremonies.
