COLLINSVILLE — Preaching took on a unique turn in Green Country this weekend.

The World of Weed Dispensary in Collinsville hosted a church service.

It brought people together who feel stigmatized for using medical marijuana.

It featured a pastor, who suffers from neuropathy in his toes, and has a medical marijuana card.

He shared hope for attendees to stand strong, despite others judgments on marijuana.

"I like being able to help people," said Pastor Jesse Moore. "You just have to tell them to look at this, this is what we're doing, and we're going to be okay, and I like it."

The World of Weed plans to have another service Sunday.
