‘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.
