They call themselves ‘Elevationists’ and give off cult-ish vibes with their new video, but the International Church of Cannabis has already raised $25k for renovations in a century-old Lutheran church.
The video is pretty cringe, but you can’t ignore that the Denver space does look like a pretty cool place to smoke.
Speculation continues over whether or not the church is in fact a social club trying to get around strict laws around religion in the US.
“We’re always dealing with issues of people or groups trying to skirt laws with the private social-club model,” said Dan Rowland, spokesman for the Department of Excise and Licenses, told The Cannabist. “But we haven’t yet seen those efforts cloaked in religion.”
Australia’s own The BongLord outlined his plans for a weed church on Tosh.0 at the end of last year. Looks like he’s been beaten to it.
