From On High: Cannabis-Based Church In Lansing, MI, Holds First Services
You should know that a marijuana-based society is not far away. You can already work out at the country's first pot-friendly gym in San Francisco, and now you can attend cannabis church. MLive:
People drove from as far as Traverse City and Detroit to the First Cannabis Church of Logic and Reason on Sunday, for the new church's first service.
The agnostic organization is led by Jackson resident Jeremy Hall, 34, and was hosted at the Lansing Herbal Farmers Market. About 50 people came to the afternoon service, Hall said. Besides the message portion of the service, there was food and marijuana-laced food in addition to a raffle for artwork and a TV.
"The analogy that we used in the service is, 'You don't need running shoes to run, but they help,'" Hall said. "You don't need cannabis in order to be spiritual – absolutely not – but for those with the views that that is part of your spirituality, you have a place to do it."
Lansing voted to decriminalize marijuana in 2013, legalizing the possession, use and transfer of an ounce of weed on private property among those 21 and older. But marijuana use remains illegal under federal and Michigan law without a medical marijuana card.
Cardholders -- those who are eligible to use marijuana for medical purposes -- can gather in a separate room at the church where partake in cannabis. The church also provides pre-rolled marijuana cigarettes. My church? Nothing but rummage sale flyers and guilt.
