I have been and will continue to be a proponent for the legalization of cannabis for adults 25 and older and for anyone suffering from terminal illnesses that would benefit from the use of the plant. I am a proponent for the responsible medicinal use of cannabis but never the abuse of the plant, in regards to the way the plant is now being abused by many teens.

 

As it relates to consistent, irresponsible, heavy use of the plant….I don’t think that is the way God intended the plant to be used in an abusive fashion, getting so high from excessive use and abuse that you can’t function properly, that applies to other substances like alcohol as well. This is not what God intended.

 

Genesis 9:3

New King James Version (NKJV)

Every moving thing that lives shall be food for you. I have given you all things, even as the green herbs.

 

1 Corinthians 6:12

New International Version (NIV)

12 “I have the right to do anything,” you say—but not everything is beneficial. “I have the right to do anything”—but I will not be mastered by anything.

 

 

Matthew 15:16-19

New International Version (NIV)

16 “Are you still so dull?” Jesus asked them. 17 “Don’t you see that whatever enters the mouth goes into the stomach and then out of the body? 18 But the things that come out of a person’s mouth come from the heart, and these defile them. 19 For out of the heart come evil thoughts—murder, adultery, sexual immorality, theft, false testimony, slander.

 

Mark 7:15-21

New International Version (NIV)

15 Nothing outside a person can defile them by going into them. Rather, it is what comes out of a person that defiles them.” [16] [a]

17 After he had left the crowd and entered the house, his disciples asked him about this parable. 18 “Are you so dull?” he asked. “Don’t you see that nothing that enters a person from the outside can defile them? 19 For it doesn’t go into their heart but into their stomach, and then out of the body.” (In saying this, Jesus declared all foods clean.)

20 He went on: “What comes out of a person is what defiles them. 21 For it is from within, out of a person’s heart, that evil thoughts come—sexual immorality, theft, murder,

 

 

Self control and moderation is what’s emphasized in the Bible as it relates to everything, smoking three and four cigar sized joints a day, or excessive bong use and abuse, as well as abuse of the more potent forms of the plant like the hashes, oils, extracts etc.

 

For the sole purpose of getting as high as you can…so high from excessive use and abuse that you can’t function properly. This form of use would be considered abuse in my opinion and excessive use and abuse of the plant is never how God intended it to be used.

 

 

I have and will always be a proponent for the responsible medicinal use of the plant, not the excessive use and abuse of the plant. The above video details the many medical benefits of the cannabis plant… this is something that many have been aware of for sometime but the media, medical establishment, FDA and pharmaceutical companies have fought hard to destroy the reputation of the plant, and in so doing put a negative light on the plant, thereby destroying and undermining information about the many benefits  of the plant.

 

It is becoming increasingly clear that the plant has numerous health benefits that I personally feel should be thoroughly analyzed and evaluated before allowing the plant to be vilified by special interest groups, who stand to save billions by undermining any  efficacy about the plants many medical benefits and specific cancer curing abilities, and properties.

 

We can do without  all the negative, unsubstantiated,  bad press and  interference from the Media, FDA, and the Pharmas who will stop at nothing to vilify the plant and it’s many medicinal benefits and to insure it’s never proven to be a cancer killer for fear it will disrupt the billions of dollars in annual funding they themselves receive to find a cure for cancer. Just as they have done with every other promising treatment or cure for cancer.

 

The only way they will get on board is if they can somehow profit from the plant. But that presents another dilemma and that is the possible monopolizing of the plant including cultivation, distribution, sales etc… This is something that should never be allowed to happen.

 

No special interest group with billions of dollars at it’s disposal should ever be able to monopolize the cultivation and profiting of the plant. Such a scenario is very dangerous and puts too much power, wealth and control, into the hands of the greedy and corrupt, who will seek to step on and force the small guy out, while they reap all the benefits both monetarily and medicinally,etc.
