Marijuana-Based Religious Group Schedules First Service


Following a story we reported a few months ago, the newest church in Indianapolis gets the green light.

The First Church of Cannabis will have its first service July 1.

That's the day Indiana's Religious Freedom Restoration Act (RFRA) takes effect.

The marijuana-based religious group says the law protects their use of marijuana.

Bill Levin, the church's founder, says the services will be about more than just getting high.

Levin says, "We spark up, and we light up. And we'll pray to happiness, compassion, and love. And we'll all be dancing in the seats, and we'll have a good time. And the band will be playing. And everyone will feel beautiful. And the amount of joy coming out of this property will be a beam more powerful than anything seen on any other planet looking down here."

The federal government has granted the church tax-exempt status.

Church members are looking for volunteers to help beautify the location.
