First Church of Cannabis hosts first service Wednesday without pot

There was no lighting up at the first ceremony of the First Church of Cannabis on the Indianapolis south side Wednesday. Indianapolis Metro Police threatened to arrest anyone who was smoking marijuana, and many officers were on hand for the service.

Police say there were no arrests or any other problems after around 150 worshipers turned out for the service. A circus-like atmosphere prevailed, though, between the media attention and founder Bill Levin. He got full rock-star treatment as he entered the church with a cigar dangling from his mouth. With his wispy white hair and its tendency to fly in all directions, Levin cuts an eccentric figure.

Levin placed stickers identifying the church on the mailbox Monday. Inside, a large mural covers one wall, a take on Michelangelo's "Creation of Man."

"God handing cannabis to man," remarked Levin, who calls himself "the Grand Poobah and first minister of love for the first church of cannabis."


The video is great! I love this guy! I would have loved to have gone to the service.
