Would you attend this bible study to get “stoned aka high in weeds for Jesus”? The “Stoner Jesus Bible Study” is a Colorado Bible study group that combines faith and weed as members smoke marijuana together while discussing the Scripture.The weed friendly group formed in May 2015 after Colorado legalized the use of recreational marijuana. Deb Button, a former school teacher and mother of two founded and hosts the weekly Bible study in her home.
Button said she first came up with the idea to host a “stoner” bible study when she began desiring to be a part of a faith community following her departure from her church a few years ago after feeling like she didn’t belong there.Group member Mia Williams says:
We are just a bunch of stoners that come together and learn about Jesus and the Word of God.
Longtime member Mark Button said weed helped pull him closer to God and away from an addiction:
God is what got me through that. Thanks to him, I’ve been sober eight years. I don’t drink or do hard drugs anymore. I do smoke marijuana sometimes.
