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.
