Pope Of Pot Will Open Church On 4/20

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – A Los Angeles-based marijuana activist is praying some divine intervention will help him and his disciples preach the power of pot.

Tomorrow (April 20) just happens to be the unofficial marijuana holiday known as “4/20” and pot promoter Craig X Rubin is using the big day to launch the Temple 420, a church that preaches that the Bible says marijuana is sacred.

Rubin, an ordained minister, says the cheeba-loving church has been meeting in people’s homes for several months, but says he is planning to open a church in Los Angeles soon.

Unfortunately for churchgoers, no one is allowed to light up during services because California law prohibits smoking inside buildings.

Instead, the marijuana-loving minister is allowing his flock to toke up in the church garden before the sermon.

However, Rubin plans to eventually sell weed inside the temple and plans to incorporate vaporizers so believers can stay healthy while praying to their God on high.
