INDIANA---The Internal Revenue Service has given its blessing to Indiana’s newly-formed First Church of Cannabis. The church formed in response to the state’s Religious Freedom Restoration Act. Now the IRS has awarded Levin a nonprofit tax-exempt status. “I am one of the few Americans who say ‘I love the IRS,’” Bill Levin, the church’s founder said outside his Indianapolis home. “There are people out there scratching their heads wanting to know how this happened, and I can answer that in one simple question: Love. Love works in mysterious ways.” Levin said marijuana is his church’s holy sacrament and Indiana’s religious freedom law was his green light. [link]
