The blooming of cannabis churches

UFCClogoThe media has been buzzing about cannabis and religion ever since Seth Rogan tweeted a sympathetic mention of Bill Levin’s newly established First Church of Cannabis in Indiana.

Funny, since I founded a similar cannabis-based ministry in Colorado last year. So I sent Bill an email suggesting we join forces, and Bill thought that was a good idea.

Even stranger, I’ve been working on a book on the origins of Christianity for months now, and suddenly find myself being contacted by legitimate Gnostic communities, many of whom consider cannabis the main ingredient in the holy anointing oil, as well as the Eucharist. If I hadn’t devoted so much time and effort studying the ancient documents, I would not be able to appreciate the traditions of the Gnostics.

Suddenly, I am realizing how easy it is to flip the script, and make religion the solution and not the problem, like it is now.

So please don’t be afraid of religion or “god talk” or the idea that cannabis is a sacrament, because if you believe cannabis is the greatest medicine on earth, then it must also be sacred, because you can’t have one without the other.

We are currently planning the first World Council of Cannabis Churches in order to help unify and focus our community mission to spread awareness about the healing powers of cannabis.

To support this mission please make a small contribution to our campaign here:
