Judge Rules Against Church Seeking To Offer Marijuana As Holy Sacrament

Marijuana may have gone a long way since the days when it was perceived as a harmful drug used only by stoners, but perhaps it’s not quite that far along yet — as proven recently when a judged ruled against a “Church of Cannabis” that seeks to offer marijuana as a form of holy sacrament.

According to the church, the judge is infringing upon their reliigious freedom. Of course, according to Judge Shery Lynch, this is simply a matter of protecting the interests of the state of Indiana and not setting a wrong precedent. Apparently, permitting a religious exemption to the laws on drug use and possession would hinder statewide drug enforcement efforts.
