Stephanie Hamman crashed through a Church Hill, Tennessee church and then called her husband for help. Her husband arrived to find Stephanie lying in front of the altar with a large kitchen knife, which she used to stab him in his chest. The husband then went home, removed the knife, and called police for help. Officers caught up with Stephanie at a hospital, where she told them she decided to live her life for God, who told her to stop smoking marijuana all day and night because He said weed was only for relaxing in the evenings. Stephanie added, "I love to smoke it. Sometimes when I do, I start seeing things that others don't. Isn't God good?"
