For most faithful followers of Christianity, getting high off the gospel is enough of a buzz. But a Denver-area church group promotes a form of spiritual connection that probably isn't allowed in most churches — or anywhere with a "no smoking" sign, for that matter. Centennial-based Stoners 4 Jesus promotes connecting with the Lord and other followers through the mind-altering effects of cannabis. More interested in Bibles than blunts, this group isn't just about getting high, but they won't say no to it, either.
Learn more about Stoners 4 Jesus's weekly meetings and other pot events in this week's Cannabis Calendar.
