Judge: First Church Of Cannabis Can't Use Weed As A Sacrament (REAL)
Indiana has a new church. The First Church of Cannabis is newly recognized and now wants to really shake things up. Weed is not their god, but founder Bill Levin would like to use it as a sacrament during their service.
He took it to court and a judge ruled against him saying that police aren’t trained to tell if someone is sincere in their religious beliefs and since marijuana is against the law there would be an arrest.
Undeterred, Levin is going to try again to use the new state Religious Freedom Restoration Act to make smoking pot a religious exemption. Hallelujah?

Lithuanian Couple Wins World Wife Carrying Championship (REAL)
The World Wife Carrying Championship is in it’s 23rd year and was held Saturday in Finland. In case you didn’t know, the idea was spawned by the 19th century tale of Ronkainen the Robber, who tested aspiring members of his gang by forcing them to carry sacks of grain or live pigs over a similar course…and wife stealing.
Fifty three men kept the proud tradition up by slinging their wives or partners over their shoulders and trudging for an hour. It’s not just walking either. It is also running, wading through a slippery pool and getting through an obstacle course. Couples from 13 countries, including the U.S. qualified to compete for the ultimate title in front of thousands of fans.
A Lithuanian couple defeated a six time champion to take the trophy. Finland, by the way is home to more than this unique competition. They also have hosted the world boot throwing, air guitar and mobile phone throwing competitions, among others.
