Marijuana legalization backed by Bible verses


Dear Editor,

Jillian Aramowicz hit the bull’s-eye with her Dec. 2 column entitled, “Marijuana not as dangerous as most legal drugs.” Marijuana should be legalized.

One way to legalize the relatively safe, extremely popular, God-given plant cannabis is to remove it from being a Schedule I substance alongside heroin, while meth and cocaine are only Schedule II substances.

Another reason to stop caging responsible adults who use cannabis that doesn’t get mentioned is because it’s biblically correct. God, the ecologician, indicates he created all the seed-bearing plants saying they are all good on literally the very first page (see Genesis 1:11-12 and 29-30). The only Biblical restriction placed on cannabis is to accept it with thankfulness (1 Timothy 4:1-5).
