Cantheism
So I have a question I guess

I don't know much about the philosophy of cantheism... But I don't think cantheists do either... Because they do not have a 'god', can an athiest take part in their practises and still be, well, athiest?

I think there'd be a conflict of terms. Atheism + a theism. It seems they "worship" the plant, essentially making it a godlike substance. And they technically do have an ideology, and practice the spreading awareness of the drug, while promoting it's use to nonusers. Why not just be a weed smoking atheist? I've been maintaining that label for years now.

EDIT: and "atheist" is spelled wrong in your sig... it's a pet peeve of mine

From what I know, it's legal to smoke pot if it's for religious or medical reasons, but illegal elsewise.
