INDIANAPOLIS — Bill Levin, the leader of Indianapolis’ First Church of Cannabis, will try to become the state’s next governor.

Levin said Monday he will seek the Libertarian Party’s nomination for governor.

The party will hold its convention next spring for the 2020 election.

The First Church of Cannabis recently celebrated its fourth anniversary. The members still can’t legally use marijuana in their church.

Levin says he plans on making legalization the main part of his platform.

In 2016, Rex Bell ran for governor in Indiana as the Libertarian nominee. He earned 24,693 votes – 1.34% of the total votes.
