The First Church of Cannabis in Indiana to begin worship services on July 1st

By Mark A. Kellner

INDIANA---An Indianapolis church devoted to marijuana and recognized as a nonprofit religious organization by the Internal Revenue Service says Indiana's new religious freedom law sanctions its worship activities. Media reports indicate the group will inaugurate its meetings on July 1, a Wednesday, when Indiana's new religious freedom law takes effect. "The first service … will open with 'Amazing Grace' played on harmonica by a popular young musician and move to a quick sermon and short member testimonies about positive things that happened in the past week," the news website reported. "And then, as anticipation mounts in what’s likely to be a packed house, Levin will issue a call to worship and the sanctuary will fill with smoke." [link]
