A non-denominational church eager to combat the stigma often associated with marijuana use plans to hold Sunday its first service that’s welcome to all.
The First Cannabis Church of Logic and Reason is scheduled to hold its inaugural service and potluck from 1-3 p.m. Sunday, led by Jackson resident Jeremy Hall, a 34-year-old ordained minister. It will be held inside the Lansing Herbal Farmers Market, 918 Southland Ave.
Hall is a state-licensed medical marijuana patient and caregiver who intends to have weekly services at the location that inspire and encourage community outreach. He said Lansing is the perfect place for the church because it has shown support of medical marijuana use and dispensaries since the state’s Medical Marihuana Act of 2008.
City officials and residents who have voiced opinions in public meetings estimate there could be up to 70 dispensaries in the city.
