Hashing It Out: Lebanese Hash Farmers To Aid In Fight Against ISIS

by January 28, 2015 0 comments

A couple weeks ago, we reported on some of those ISIS jerks in Syria setting fire to a shit ton of marijuana in order to destroy the plants. Since those images and stories emerged, tensions in the Middle East have grown, as hash and marijuana farmers are concerned for their crops (and probably their lives). So now, instead of Lebanese authorities and hash farmers battling it out with one another, they’ve turned their guns towards the jihadists.

The Bekaa Valley hashish factory of Ali Nasri Shamas in Bouday, Lebanon is merely 30 minutes from the Syrian border. So farmers are preparing themselves with an arsenal, which includes melee weapons such as machetes and a sizeable artillery, all of which was originally intended for the authorities.

In October, ISIS members attacked a border town, and the hash farmers aided in the town’s defense. One farmer stated, “Their goal is to put fear in the hearts of people…but for us, ISIS is nothing…We support every village in Lebanon…Christian, Sunni, Shia — whatever they are, we’ll defend them against these terrorists.” He says that the fight is no longer only to protect his crops, but to protect the Lebanese people.

See, cannabis is only further bringing people together. Smoke a blunt to the good fight!
