First Church Of Cannabis Files RFRA Lawsuit
First Church of Cannabis attorney Mark Small says Indiana’s laws prohibiting marijuana possession and use prevent church members from fully practicing their religion, even if the church itself is new.
Indiana’s highly publicized First Church of Cannabis is going to court, hoping to stop the state from enforcing marijuana laws when it comes to the use of cannabis in its church services.
The church’s attorney will use the controversial Religious Freedom Restoration Act or RFRA to help his case.
RFRA creates a legal standard that says government must have a compelling reason to restrict someone’s religious practice and do so in the least burdensome way possible.
