People are asking the Pope to baptise cannabis

The current pope is known as a bit of a radical. He has eschewed traditions that he predecessors have has, such as moving into the papal palace, sitting on the ‘Throne of Peter’ and wearing the regal clothes one would usually associate with a pope.

So perhaps that’s why people are petitioning him to ‘baptise’ cannabis.

Yep, that’s a thing that a pope can do. A similar baptism was done for coffee about 400 years ago by Pope Clement VIII. The church at the time thought of coffee as a particularly brutal drink and as it was used by muslims instead of wine, they didn’t have the highest opinion of it.

The pope, however, did managed to find himself tasting the drink, and said that they could baptize the drink in order to save it for good christian use.

So could Pope Francis do the same with cannabis?

It wouldn’t...
