Dead Confederates, A Civil War Era Blog

This Harshes My Mellow.

Posted in Memory by Andy Hall on December 12, 2010

I’ve seen the elements of the Lost Cause used to sell all kinds of crazy stuff, but weedthe ganja pride of Dixie?”

Since the strain was developed by a Southern history buff who loved the South, lived in the South, and used “Dixie” cups for germination; it felt only natural to name the strain based on its origin. And because the Federal Government forced the label of “criminal” upon Mike as per the failed “War on Drugs,” Michael decided to defend his rights against Federal tyranny in true Southern tradition; rebellion.

The second part of our strain’s name comes from the Lord Almighty Himself. We wanted to express our deep feelings for the huge role that God and Jesus both play in our lives and for the great many things that we are all blessed with because of it. Our crop is intended in every way to honour the Lord and it’s done so tactfully and with good reason.

We live in a time where some individuals wish to take the name of “God” out of everything in America (removal of 10 commandants and crosses from public places, etc.) Political correctness has run amok and now, for no apparent reason, it’s not OK to wish someone a “Merry Christmas” anymore during December. Why is it that we’ve strayed so far from our roots?

This is America! This whole entire “New World Experiment” was founded upon religion. We can say “Merry Christmas” if we want to. Likewise, we can name pot strains after our Savior if we deem appropriate. That’s just how it is. We are unapologetic.

Finally, we believe that by placing the name of Jesus back into the people’s hands we are providing a positive step. We deliver the message and the Lord will work out the details.

Take a stand for the right to preserve Southern tradition while keeping God first.

With God Our Vindicator….Deo Vindice!

I wonder if H. K. Edgerton knows these fools are using his image for this, er, endeavor.

    Given the noted inferiority of Rebel gunnery, I find the “Hits Like a Confederate Cannon” bumper sticker kinda ironic.

      Yes. More I think about it, I suspect there’s no pot involved in this at all — medicinal or otherwise. It may just be a really cynical way to sell “gear.”

    I’m not quite sure how to respond to this….I am at a loss for words. Mind you, this rarely happens.
