If you live in America, it shouldn’t be news to you that there are (many) conservative religious groups who would like you to believe that marijuana is the devil’s harvest. However, if you’re looking to mix God with ganja, we have some excellent alternatives to the Christian religion that don’t frown upon the use of cannabis.

There are many religions you can choose to be a part of (and even more sects within some of those faiths), but there are also a wealth of cannabis-friendly institutions you can join if you’re looking to let your spiritual side shine. Whether it’s denominations within Buddhism, Hinduism, Taoism, or the Rastafari movement, there’s no reason you can’t enjoy religion and reefer at the same time.

If you want to learn more about how marijuana fits into these religious groups—which includes health benefits and some Miss Cleo-esque fortune-telling— MERRY JANE News has collected some of the most essential details to show you that not all of those who believe in a higher power believe it’s a terrible thing to get high.
