The first International Church of Cannabis opened its doors in Denver this week. The church has no specific dogma. “We’re building a community of volunteers, and the common thread is that they use cannabis to positively influence their lives, and they use cannabis for spiritual purposes,” said one f the founders of the church, which now has a congregation of more than 200.
Colorado legalized recreational marijuana in 2012 and has been fine-tuning its regulations ever since. It is still illegal to smoke in Denver’s public spaces.
