Coloroado marijuana church opens cannabis museum near Wyoming border

WYOMING-COLORADO BORDER – The Rev. Brandon Baker held in his hands two cannabis plants, one industrial hemp and the other marijuana.

They looked similar to the untrained eye, but Baker said the easiest way to spot the difference are the sparkly crystals in the marijuana plant. Industrial hemp doesn’t have them.

Most of the tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC, the psychoactive component of marijuana, is in the crystals, he said.

Baker is a minister who wears long dread locks and tie dye rather than a black shirt and white collar. He and his church, Greenfaith Ministry, have opened a cannabis museum on the Colorado side of the border with Wyoming. LaMay’s Cannabis Museum sits along U.S. 85., known in Cheyenne as the South Greeley Highway, in the former Stateline Oasis, which sold Colorado Lottery tickets until closing recently.
