Letter to the Editor

God-given plant

Friday, January 27, 2012

Dear Editor,

It's encouraging to see Nebraska (Marijuana Petitions Have Local Roots, Jan. 23, 2012) joining Colorado, California, Washington, Oregon, Michigan, Missouri and other states in the race to RE-legalize the extremely popular, relatively safe God-given plant cannabis (marijuana).

One reason to stop caging responsible adults, sick or otherwise, who use cannabis that doesn't get mentioned is because it is biblically correct since 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).

    I love this argument. Here is another list of "God-given plants"


    That is leaving aside all the other half truths and propaganda. I am waiting for the anti-Christian and/or anti-religion people to jump all over this guy for talking about God and even *gasp* quoting the Bible. I believe I shall hold my breath until those recent writers and posters stating how silly all religious people seem to be condemn this guy.

    If you see someone a lovely shade of azure , tell me it is okay to take a breath.
