Following Gov. Mike Pence signing the controversial Religious Freedom Act (SB 101) into law yesterday, Tuesday, March 31, is something pretty unexpected: the establishment of Indiana's First Church of Cannabis.
Chicagoist reports that the church's doors were opened just hours after the law, which could allow discrimination against LGBT people, was signed, and that the Church of Cannabis is actually an "officially recognized religion in the state of Indiana." The church's mission, as stated on its Facebook page, is "to Celebrate LOVE, UNDERSTANDING, EQUALITY and COMPASSION for all." And, of course, "Be a CANNABITERIAN!"
