God enters the Nelson pot debate

Caging humans, sick or otherwise, for using or growing what God says is good is a criminal vulgar sin.

Legalizing pot the only way to go.

Caging humans, sick or otherwise, for using or growing what God says is good is a criminal vulgar sin.

It’s an inhumane shame that Valerie McKone and other sick citizens must jump through hoops (“Fighting for medicinal Pot” January 20) to get permission to use the plant cannabis (marijuana) to cope with excruciating pain.

That permission has already been granted by God, The Ecologician since He created all the seed bearing plants saying they are all good, on literally the very first page of the Bible (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). And, “But whoever has the world’s goods, and sees his brother in need and closes his heart against him, how does the love of God abide in him?” (1 John 3:17).

Further, many people know cannabis is the tree of life and the last page of the Bible indicates the leaves of the tree of life are for the healing of the nations.
