Everything Is Going Down, But The Word Of God……A non-denominational church eager to combat the stigma often associated with marijuana use plans to hold Sunday its first service that’s welcome to all. So there is a church that allows anything you just have to hunt and find it. Now there is a 4/20 church. Not sure if they will roll on up as part of the worship service or not, but they are up and running with a good amount of people in attendance.
The First Cannabis Church of Logic and Reason is scheduled to hold its inaugural service and potluck from 1-3 p.m. Sunday, led by Jackson resident Jeremy Hall, a 34-year-old ordained minister.
Hall is a state-licensed medical marijuana patient and caregiver who intends to have weekly services at the location that inspire and encourage community outreach. He said Lansing is the perfect place for the church because it has shown support of medical marijuana use and dispensaries since the state’s Medical Marihuana Act of 2008.
“What I’m hoping to accomplish in the long run is to provide a place where people can be spiritual, but can also feel safe to take any of their medication,” Hall said. “If they also feel cannabis is part of their spirituality, they can combine the two in a safe environment.”
Hall encourages both medical marijuana users and non-users to visit the non-profit, agnostic place of worship and bring an an open mind with them. He said marijuana can be part of a religious experience because it can help people in pain and create a sense of belonging.
Since the service will be held on private property, Hall doesn’t anticipate any problems or abuse of city rules and regulations. The congregation is expected to pass a marijuana roach collection jar around during the service to provide for marijuana patients in need.
