The Highest Praise: Community Conversation About Faith And Cannabis

March 3, 2022 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

According to research published in a 2018 Journal of Drug Issues article, individuals who regularly attend church and report that religion is very important in their daily decision-making are less likely to use cannabis for medical or non-medical purposes. In an effort to elevate the conversation, “The Highest Praise: Cannabis & Faith!” will explore what religious and spiritual traditions say about the plant and its consumption. 

Created to educate and empower communities of disproportionate impact and others interested in learning about the intersection of cannabis and faith, “The Highest Praise” will feature a dynamic panel of thought leaders offering insight on topics including: 

  • The history of cannabis in religious texts & scriptures 
  • What religious and spiritual traditions say about cannabis and consumption 
  • What happens when faith or religion conflicts with medical authority
  • Spiritual and faith leader beliefs about hemp and CBD use

Register today to join us for this free online event!
