Church of Cannabis to Open on 4/20

A church for marijuana lovers is set to open in Denver, Colorado, during the weed-friendly 4/20 weekend. The New York Post reports that the pro-smoking sanctuary has been dubbed the  “International Church of Cannabis” and will be run by Elevation  Ministries. “Our lifestance is that an individual’s spiritual journey,  and search for meaning, is one of self-discovery,” a statement shared on  Wednesday reads. “And one that may be accelerated and deepened with  cannabis use.” 

The release also explains, “Elevationists claim no divine  authority, nor an authoritarian organizational structure.” The church  is based in a 113-year-old chapel that has been getting renovated since  July 2016 and now features colorful murals painted by artist Okuda San  Miguel and Kenny Scharf.
