LANSING, MI (AP) -

A nondenominational church seeking to combat stigmas associated with marijuana use has scheduled its inaugural service.

The Lansing State Journal reports that the First Church of Logic and Reason will have its first service Sunday at the Lansing Herbal Farmers Market.

The service will be led by 34-year-old Jeremy Hall, an ordained minister and state-licensed medical marijuana patient.

Michigan voters approved marijuana use for some chronic medical conditions in 2008.

Hall says he wants to have weekly services and provide a space where people can be spiritual, but also feel safe to take any of their medications.

Hall encourages medical marijuana users and nonusers to visit the place of worship. He expects about 40 people to show up to the first service.
