Marijuana Is Not a Holy Sacrament, Rules Indiana Judge Following First Church of Cannabis Lawsuit

Tom Porter, writing for Newsweek:

The First Church of Cannabis has been left disappointed after the organization's bid to have its use of marijuana recognized under Indiana religious freedom laws as a religious sacrament was rejected.

On Friday, Marion County Superior Court Jude Sheryl Lynch ruled that members of the church would not be exempt from state and federal laws banning the drug, reported NBC4i. 

Although the Church members lost, I'm glad to see that they made an honest attempt and are planning to appeal the decision. Drug policy reform has been inching along the past few decades mainly because of the medical and civil rights movements, but the religious/spiritual argument is also valid and should be tested in courts all across the land.
