‘Church of Cannabis’ approved under Indiana religious freedom law

Well, here’s one way to look at the new law:

Indiana has approved “The First Church of Cannabis” under its controversial religious freedom law.

Church founder Bill Levin told ABC 7 that he decided to found the church in late March after the law was passed “since religion is governing this state.”

“As Elwood said, ‘I’m on a mission from God,'” Levin said in a phone interview, referencing the famous quote from The Blues Brothers.

Marijuana is currently illegal for medical or recreational use in Indiana, though the church may skirt the law under the state’s Religious Freedom Restoration Act, which limits the government from intervening with a person’s exercise of religion.

Man Steals £1000 From Tattoo Shop, Gets Jesus Tattoo There, Skips Out Without Paying

From Luton Today:

A tattooist at RedINC Luton was stunned when the ‘customer’ claimed he had already paid another member of staff for the work and then used the confusion to skip out on a £250 bill.

CCTV footage seems to show that an hour before that the man took advantage of the tattooist locking up a back door to steal £1,000 from the front counter– which he stuffed into his jeans before sitting down to get his artwork finished. Remarkably the man already had a tattoo of praying hands on his other arm, which was inscribed with ‘Only God can judge me’.
