Man Smokes Marijuana to Prepare for Jesus’ Return

Neither of these are the guy who got arrested smoking marijuana for Jesus. But, they are who first came to our mind.

Some charismatics believe in “toking the Holy Spirit” or “getting high on Jesus.” Others people are literally smoking weed in preparation for Christ’s return (or so they told the cops).

[TCPALM] In the end, Carlos Guillen, 23, of Port St. Lucie, was jailed on a DUI charge after Indian River County sheriff’s deputies were called July 27 to the Vero Beach Outlets west of Interstate 95 off State Road 60.

Investigators reported a man later identified as Guillen was in the driver’s seat of a parked vehicle, the interior of which smelled of booze. A half bottle of Hennessy cognac was in the passenger seat and a cup that looked to contain the alcoholic beverage was in a cup holder.

Asked for his driver’s license, Guillen handed over a vape pen that he said contained THC, the psychoactive ingredient in marijuana.

Deputies said Guillen smelled of alcohol. He also said he was in Tampa, the county seat of Hillsborough County on Florida’s west coast.

“I asked Guillen if he was enjoying Tampa, and where he was staying,” the affidavit states. “Guillen pointed south of the outlet mall, and advised he was at a church convention approximately 4 miles in that direction.”

To summarize the local news reports, the man told the officer his vape pen was full of THC so that he could get high in anticipation of Jesus’ return. It is reminiscent of this news story about a fellow operating a crack house in the name of Jesus.

2But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law. (Galatians 5:22-23)
