Church of Cannabis set to open on 4/20
DENVER (KDVR / CNN Newsource / WKRC) - A church for marijuana enthusiasts is planning to have its grand opening in Denver on April 20.
They call it the "High Holiday."
The International Church of Cannabis is in place of a former Lutheran Church.
Elevationists founding member Steve Berke said, "We really want to impact our community in a positive way and be respectful of our neighbors and help people understand that concept is what we're all about."
The group says it is trying to raise $100,000 to repair and upgrade the 100-year-old church and make it accessible to those with disabilities and wounded warriors.
Organizers say they plan to offer documentary viewings, guest speakers and musical performances at the church.
