Pastor Jamal Bryant Says Growing Weed Is The Answer To Bringing More Black Men To His Church



Pastor Jamal Bryant of New Birth Missionary Baptist Church in metro Atlanta has a new idea on how to bring more black men to his church. His idea is to grow weed to attract more churchgoers.

In a recent interview, he says, “I’m looking for people that smell like weed. New Birth is the largest land-owning Black church in America. My position to my deacons is ‘why aren’t we not raising cannabis?”

“I’ll be able to bring in Black males. They’re able to do it legally. I’m teaching them farming. I’m helping them to enhance the ecosystem. This is the kind of conversation. So if the guy, Black boy, in Bankhead said ‘they growing weed at the church? Where do I join?’ I don’t need no pamphlet for him.”

According to Georgia’s Department of Health, marijuana laws are tougher than in most states, so we arent sure how Bryant will pull off the venture.

“Georgia’s law is much more limited than some other states’ medical marijuana laws. For example, it does not legalize the sale or possession of marijuana in leaf form, and it does not authorize the production or sale of food products infused with low-THC oil or the ingestion of low-THC oil through vapor. It does not authorize physicians to prescribe marijuana for medical use. It is intended solely to protect qualified persons from criminal prosecution for possessing low-THC oil for medicinal purposes.”
