[And here's their attempt to hide their quack products behind the first amendment.]
Natural Healing is identified under the Nemenhah Constitution as synonymous with "establishment", "exercise" and "practice" of the Nemenhah Religion. Pursuant to USC Title 42 Chapter 21B § 2000bb–1 : Religious Freedom Restoration, government is prevented from substantially burdening the establishment and free exercise of a person's religion, unless the burden is in furtherance of a compelling government interest....Accordingly, the Nemenhah make this declaration with regard to that standard by which a substance, practice, device, or technology is defined as a "Sacrament" or "Ceremony" of the Native American Church of Nemenhah and doctrines and institutions of its Religion.

Wouldn't hold up in court, likely. Nemenhah is not recognized as a church or nonprofit, and selling quack products isn't a religious ceremony.

For those who've come to this thread before reading about Nemenhah, its "university" appears to be a weeklong course according to its graduates. Not certified. There is no "Nemenhah tribe" or culture, just white Mormons making nonsense claims and trying to avoid prosecution for breaking drug laws.
