Visiting the International Church of Cannabis

Reflection:

  • These are photos in and around the International Church of Cannabis. They were gathered in one sitting where I also grabbed the interview. They’re not displayed in chronological order but rather in a form that matches with the audio and gives the listener a good tour of the facilities.
