For Immediate News Release, Feb. 22, 2006 Church of Cognizance, Puna, Hawaii Information Center
Founders of Church of Cognizance Arrested?
E.C.Danuel and Mary Quantance have been arrested by the border patrol in New Mexico and are being held at the D.E.A. office in Los Cruises, New Mexico on Marijuana charges. Despite to recent ruling by the Supreme Court on the right of churches to transport their sacrament un-harassed and the fact that Marijuana is recognized as a Sacrament by the Supreme Court, members of a marijuana church (church of Cognizance) are being held regardless of what the high courts say in a act by the D.E.A. that can only be described as a Hate Crime. E.C.Danuel has a medical condition that is not being considered be these nazi’s and without his med’s serious health problems could accure.
This is a very serious situation that cannot go unheard or untold. Please forward this e-mail to all of the Activist in your address book and/or contact me (Daniel Jeffrey) at 808 965-7514 or e-mail at “firstname.lastname@example.org” with any help you might be able to offer be it advise or what ever.
More information will be sent along as it comes in. Believe me when I say that we have no intention on allowing our founders to be subjected to this Hate Crime unchallenged or published.
Please be prepared to join us broadcast this Hate Crime from the highest mountain.
E.C.Danuel Quantance is bar none one of the leading authorities on the history of the use of Marijuana worldwide and has dedicated most of his life helping people with marijuana cases. I can only hope that we can help him now that he is being victumized by the DEA whom make there living off of selling rock cocaine and jailing marijuana users.

Aloha and blessings to you all. Timothy, E.C.dan&mary Q. the good news and bad news. The good news is that dan&mary had documentation of the teachings and practices of the church of Cognizance at their pre-trial to offer to the Federal Judge whom accepted it along with other motions for study and consideration which will be major to this case. What is known about the detention of dan,mary and timothy "is" that they were not crossing a border nor had they just crossed a border when they were stopped and questioned by the border patrol..Dan and Mary had "O" marijuana on them or in their van however they were being followed by a authorized courier of the church of Cognizance whom carried 107lbs of the churches sacrament and when asked (dan&mary) if they had any relationship to the car that was behind them at some distance they or dan replied as he should (which drug smugglers would never do) that the car was in fact a courier of the church of Cognizance and authorized by the Church to transport it's Sacrament between it's churches. Because of a recent arrest of a courier of the Church of Cognizance dan and mary felt I imagine that they should accompany the Sacrament in transport to aquire it's safe delivery.That is our rights according to our FAITH. We give thanks for the Herb.
We have had a tremendious response from many of you and I would like to say on behalf of our church thank you (mahalo) all for your support. We of the church of Cognizance have always obeyed the laws of the United States of America as we understand and interpret them to be in that we have the right to have communication with GOD the best way we know how and to freely supply ourselve our spiritual needs. On the bad side we are concerned about dan&mary's detention on a phyisical level as dan&mary rely on the Herb for 3 reasons one of which is being in "good spiritual health" which they are not in without their Sacrament.
We feel confident that we have a great opertunity to bring some clarity as to who has what right. Many have chosen a religious approach to defending a physical and health need when it comes to the herb through testing to learn what works best for them. Marijuana being the oldest and most tested has taught us that good health is spiritual. We give thanks for the Herb.
Dan,Mary and Timothy will be before the Judge again on Tuesday with a request for release and the returning of the churches Sacrament so until then all our energies are within a prayer.
p.s. all our ducks are in order and we give thanks and praises for Haoma>>>>>>>>>>your bud E.C.daniel jeffrey of the church of Cognizance, Puna, Hawaii
TODAY IS THE DAY TO RISE UP AND STAND TOGETHER AND DECLARE OUR RIGHTS AND INSIST ON THE IMMEDIATE RELEASE OF REVS. DAN, MARY AND TIMOTHY. CALL TODAY! MAKE YOURSELF HEARD! GOD WILL BLESS US AND PROTECT US, IF WE ARE "BOLD"! REV.JACK
LETS NOT FORGET MARY"S BROTHER Joe Butts was busted, last week in MO. for the same charges that brought Dan an Mary down. We got his bail reduced from $100,000 to "just $50,000". He has been the MO Gitmo for 12 days and still (like Dan ) has not been able to phone out for help.
There is no money, and a fee agreement needs to be signed, for him to have a lawyer. Till then he is pro-se and helpless, while the slow wheels of just-us turn. We have established his Church affilliation so far. Another hearing on this case, is next thursday March 2nd, 2006; a day before Dan and Mary's release hearing the next day.
DO we have a Church? DO we have a Constitution? Are we protected by the oath of office that all involved in this burden of our "mode of Worship" requires???
Stay tuned for the next exciting episode, of CAN THE GOVERNMENT KIDNAP OUR CHURCH FOUNDERS AND HOLD THEM FOR RANSOM ???
This just in: venessa quaintance <email@example.com> Sent : Saturday, February 25, 2006 1:24 PM To : firstname.lastname@example.org Subject : the recent visit with Dan and Mary in Las Cruces Jail
| | | Inbox
Hello All, I just thought I would sit down and write this letter to say that my husband and I just visited Dan and Mary in Dona Ana County Detention Facility. I do have to say they do not look good in that jail. That is not just my opinion I myself witnessed it along with my husband. When we spoke with Dan after court he said on the way to Las Cruces from Lordsburg the agents were driving were varying in speeds up to 90 and 100 miles per hour and put all their lives in danger, by almost hitting a Simi. They were told to shut up and were told their religion wasn’t a valid one and continued their slandering remarks about them and the “religion”. We personally viewed bruising on his wrists and ankles. He also said they were roughed up quite abit. After Dan's visit we visited Mary her visit saddened me. She came in the room in tears and stressed out. She was told she couldn’t have visitors or phone calls. The jail or possible the phone system is blocking her phone calls home, but Dan gets through. She showed us her bruising on her wrists and ankles and her left hip is bruised from sleeping on a thin mattress and had only one blanket. Mary said she asked for two days for an extra mattress and blanket and was denied. Her son finally after going to medical was told she would be approved for those items. She said the jailers are very mean and cruel to her. One guard told her that she would be stripped of everything she had, including her clothes, and be thrown into lockdown if she spoke to her husband again. I personally know that she didn’t speak to him he spoke to her. Dan said he saw her walk by his cell and he hollered out to her. I just want to know why some of those guards in that place find it so necessary to rough up old people and yes I can say they're both over fifty and in poor health. In that whole jail only one person fought to get us a visit and thanks to the lieutenant we got our visit with Dan and Mary. Thank you lt. Any way it looks like a good possibility that Dan and Mary will be released Tuesday on bond. In my personal opinion I think that this fight is an important one to all future and past religious freedoms and it will be won. Both of the people are peaceful religious people and need to be released immediately. The courts need to recognize their own laws and regulations and let them go now and stop the desecration of their religious beliefs. Thank you for your time.
I finely spoke with the Chaplin at the jail at about Noon today filled him in on who we are and what we believe and our concerns about the treatment of our Family. He tried to defend the staff at the jail but it was pretty pathetic. I insisted he deliver a mess. to Mary.
Mary called collect at about 3:30pm. She is in great spirits and full of hope and confidence. She has been bruised but is toughing it out. It would make you so proud to hear the strength in her voice. She asked me to extend her thanks to all of you who are working so hard to fulfill the great work of bringing she and Dan safely to victory.
I also talked to Dan a couple of times today He is as expected, Gung-ho. Dan also asked me to thank everyone for everything you are doing.
This event following the Supreme Court decision could be the case that turns the tide in our favor. I call upon all believers who have felt they should stand up for the goodness of Cannabis and have not, to take this once in a life time opportunity and write and call your Congressmen, Senators, Governors, and the media and help these brave souls and proclaim our rights to use Cannabis as our holy sacrament.

Now that the Church in a box is gone, and the knew webmaster is reading this after the raid, and you now know who the Players were and are. That we are now impotant, UNLESS some one downloads this whole site on to a major hard drive or turns it over to the FBI for hate crime evidence.
I conferred yesterday and today with Ed Rosenthall (NORML board) Clifford Thornton, and Dan Viets on a heads up. That LEAF ( law enforcement against Prohabition ) YOU may realize that you have shot the golden goose. YOU have in your hands the emancipation for an American Bastill Day. YOU can go down in history as the most benovalant smart guys OR go on record as the ones that upset the (gracefull way out )apple cart.
This is OUR plea bargain to you (unofficial off the record of course, and me not being the "leader" or anything like that) to accept your guilt. That MArijuana or Haoma isnt the problem. That Law Enforcement is on a runaway train that will bankrupt the very Cities AND States that pay for your exorbatant crossbar hotel industry, conviction machine, and will henceforth BITE the hands that feed you.
In good faith; you must tell the DEA- l, The CIA- tation AND the FBI- bbers that there is now a truce,between Church and State. That the Church , faith based programs will GLADLY provide an alturnitive route to incarceration, rehab, Other Drugs, and slowly shift the burden of your "problems" over to a kinder gentler group of folks, that will Happily, Mercifully, Welcome; all the Felons, that YOU created - back into the new "drug industry" that can gradually transfer the hurt and obligations to more Qualified Helpers
When this finally goes to the open public debate, as it will most assuradly will - the drug war is over. When the public finds out, that you picked on a helpless defensless little minority country Church, and scared all the children WELL SHAME ON YOU!
All our records are duped into a hundred other Churches, that will take the place of this one. Each dealer you bust will open 200 places to be replaced by other younger sons and daughters of the ones you put in jail.
After thirty years of the drug war YOU have lost! There are more , cheaper , accessable sources of drugs that we could only dream about when acid heads were born . NOW you have designer drugs that scare the hell OUT OF US !!!
Get off the train NOW while you still can . WE are not the villians we are the HEROS ! Talk sense into your Superiers, and suggest that MAYBE these guys are the real thing, and that a big fat BLUNT is far more popular than any of YOUR politicians ie, Niel Abercombe continusly elected in Hawaii for thirty six years.
Don't you want to be popular too? Dont you want your friends to be re-elected, next time ? Is'nt about time that you join the growing numbers of ex-probation officers, prosecuting attorneys, State and Federal Judges, AND State representitives that now clammer for the end of the drug war , and PRO-habition. Just remand your decision over to a higher supream juris and let them handle this hot potato.
OR you can put off this grand oppurtunity that has landed in your lap. YOU may be a little part of a really BIG thing and not know it. Many people are praying that you finally see the light...
Dan & Mary's son Dennis called this morning, 3/10/06, and said that Dan & Mary were finally released from the torture warehouses where they have been held as prisoners of the DEA "war on drugs" for 16 days. They all arrived back at the COC Monastery last night at 10:30 PM. Mary is in very bad shape. They are taking her to the hospital this morning. She was severely and maliciously battered and bruised while in custody, and is unable to walk under her own power.
Dan & Mary are being STRICTLY prohibited from communicating in any form with any persons in the Church of Cognizance or who are otherwise involved with The Herb in any way, by phone, email, mail etc. Taps have been placed on all phones and email to my understanding.
They are completely prohibited from practicing their religion.
I was contacted by Melanie at MAKE POT LEGAL.ORG, http://makepotlegal555.org , who offered financial assistance for Dan & Mary's legal defense. Everyone PLEASE check out Melanie's EXCELLENT site. There are GREAT LINKS, TOOLS, INFORMATION AND INSPIRATION to keep us all going forward in our battles for COGNITIVE LIBERTY AND FREEDOM FOR ALL!
I have become concerned that PayPal contributions to Mary@ enlightener.net may somehow be seized by the DEA, and it may be better and more secure for anyone wanting to contribute to Dan, Mary, or Joseph, (WHO IS STILL INCARCERATED IN MISSOURI FOR ABOUT A MONTH NOW) LEGAL DEFENSE FUNDS, PLEASE send checks or money orders directly to DAN, who will prioritize the use of the money according to the COC critical legal needs.
Send to: Dan Quaintance HC R1 BOX 4352 Pima, Arizona 85543
If you are not a member of the COC, you could probably call Dan @ (928) 485-2952, without violating his conditions of release. Your conversation will probably be monitored. But hey, we got nothing to hide. It is perhaps the most direct line to the DEA you will ever have, so tell them what you think about them!
Bless Us All,

I just went to the store with my last $19.00. After buying Milk bread and necessities, I had $1.00 left. That $1.00 will go into a letter and will be Sent to sister Mary from a Church member and she will have my letter to prove that this is a real church.
If we all sent her $1.00 in a letter I know it would add up and help ourselves as well. I am going on a bike ride in April that will travel across the USA at 15 MPH. Bu members that need Marijuana for Medical reasons. Look at who is going on it at http://www.angelfire.com/planet/bikeride/ All information is there about this God given path we have been put on. Any $1.00 contribution would be appreciated from us as well.
My personal $1.00 to DAN & MARY & JOE will be mailed now.
High all. Last night my Lawyer Carolyn Mathews spoke to Dan, and disscussed the" Flame of ire". Comments like brutalized, castes a shadow across the whole penal systom. Mary got caught in a" knife" fight in the shower room, that caused internal bleeding? CM directed her to doctors care for accurate documentation for the second part of the trial, the big one. They are on a very strict talking hitch right now, and Joe (still in), is very afraid of how he is treated- still no phone calls go out, but word comes in, as many unseen eyes are watching this case." Unseen ears", threw Mary against the wall when Dan hailed her from his cell.
On the bright side, a 20 minit appointment with the Prohabition officer turned into three hours in Tucson. The case, is in the Ninth Circuit AZ, and in the Tenth Circiut which includes Joe, here in MO. Dan was told that two other unknown members of COC had cases dissmissed. This was good news to the Informus Pauperuos Lawyers awarded to the case ( some of the highest paid in N.M.) They got Mary some care right away for today !
Word is coming out, we are dealing with lawyers, who have done the Peyote cases in the past, and are now listening to Dan, as an expert. He and Dennis caught the DEA guy in a "perjery" situation on the transcript that Dennis caught (after he was thrown out of court). When a very careful story unfolds it will be ready for High Times and other journalists. See the articale www.eacourier.com , on March 13, where they state " A large amount of drugs was not found, on the compound premisis, but officers siezed a few burlap back packs that are commonly used to transport Marijuana, scales, five laptop computors and two desktop computors".
Dan really objects to, the reference to the Church as a "compound", like it was Waco or some thing. "Over a hundred LEO cars were out on the main road during the raid " can you see how this scared the neighbors ? I am getting this third hand, but till the facts are in . The quote from officer Boyd " I don't know how many members are in the Church, but why do they need 500 pounds of Marijuana?" " They are trying to say it's freedom of religion to use the drug," he said". I say, Why do they need a hundred cars? AND $20,000 for a drug problem as I hear it.
Lindsey Stocton assistant editor wrote the above and broke the news for the first time, and needs a little "gentile correcting" . Dan can't even send out an e-mail, and Joe is still alone, ( I gave out his address , he wrote back and feels forsaken from no news getting through). In my case it was the skillfull letters (from Dan, no one else wrote) that turned the tide, he got them to see our sincerity , and the facts as they are numbered, and footnoted on the record, that was to go on to the Appellet Appeal. This is where the good thoughts , and good deeds come in. We need em, Joe needs em, and the apple cart will proceed. Dan scared them with polite quotes, from the Law; that for some reason only applies to U.S. as they see fit to uphold the ones that they like. There are laws that are older than the States that joined the Union, and adopted the Constituion, I hear was written on hemp paper. I also hear that that burlap stuff we haul computors around in, is also made out of Hemp, Golee , ya figure ya kin smoke those things? How do those Cognoscenti's get five laptops and a scale into two backpacks ? Or was that "a few". Gotta love em. REtraction?
Are we preachin to the organ player, or will the right people post, on our still secure Web Sites, that are still up and safe in Hong Kong, on the tenth floor. This is where those ears are, so talk to em good brothers and sisters of the cloth . Be the rightious, be the truth. Brother Bari,.WYTE
Post Script.... Joe's truck needs a new bill of sale, from the original owner, to get it out of the impound. They will only release it to the one that holds this bill of sale, from California, unsigned by joe ($25 per impound day) Contact Zina if you can track this down in California. Get it , right.
In response to the arrest of Dan, Mary and Timothy: From what I understand, the Church IS protected under law. What is not is the transporting. There is no law protecting transporting. IF there is please let them know. If convicted a MAX of 20 years is what is being said is the sentence. I am not a member of your Church, I am the mother of Timothy. Thank you and I pray that God is with them in this trying time in all of our lives.
