Crane lifts the world’s largest hemp joint into worship position in Japan

A hell of load of hemp!—Four and half tons of a new sacred hemp rope is shown below being lifted into Kaguraden Hall of the Izumo Taisha Shrine on July 9th in Taisha, Shimane Prefecture, Japan. According to The Asahi Shimbun (via Getty Images) the Shinto shrine’s rope was renewed for the 1st time in four years and it took six and half hours to get it into a “high” position of hemp-full worship.

Notice the hot hemp maidens praying for love in the lower half of the above photo. Izumo Taisha is one of the most important Shinto shrines in Japan and is thought to favor those hoping for luck in love.

    Check out this guerrilla marketing campaign for Showtime television series “Weeds.” The show rolled up giant joints and sent them out at floral bouquets as a marketing ploy to get people to watch the Weeds TV show.
