Inside the First Church of Cannabis

The First Church of Cannabis — an "unintended consequence" of Indiana's new Religious Freedom Restoration law — will hold its initial ceremony on July 1 at 12:01 p.m., moments after RFRA goes into effect. The service's leader, Bill Levin, says worship will open with 35 minutes of celebration. Congregants will be honored for their contributions to the Church's seven directives: live, learn, love, laugh, create, grow and teach.

After the celebration and church announcements, worshippers will read the Church's Commandments — the "Deity Dozen" — and then "sanctify" the space. Consumption of the church's sacraments will be followed by 30 minutes of fellowship, then congregants will be asked to exit the church — "It's not a party, it's a religious service," says Levin.
