Smoking marijuana is not a protected sacrament under Indiana’s Religious Freedom and Restoration Act, according to Judge Sheryl Lynch of the Marion County Circuit Court—at least, not as practiced by the First Church of Cannabis in Indianapolis. Members of that organization filed a lawsuit in 2016 challenging the state’s marijuana use prohibition.
