The International Church of Cannabis has opened it's doors in Denver, Colorado.
Steve Berke, CEO of Bangholdings.com and owner of the property says:
"Elevationists are what we call our congregation... An individual's spiritual journey and search for meaning is one of self discovery that can be heightened and deepened through ritual cannabis use."
By definition, Berke classifies this church as a real church:
"It's going to do all the things that churches do."
The church will also allow the consumption of marijuana by invite only and for special events.
"People who use cannabis as a sacrament for their own spiritual and religious purposes can come and feel safe that they're not going to be prosecuted or arrested for practicing their religion in peace,"says Berke.
Hundreds of people stopped by for worship on opening day.⠀
