| "Thank you for spreading the truth. I was born and raised a Catholic and always taught the general public opinion that pot is bad. When I started to smoke pot my opinion was quickly changed. All the lies that I had been told by the adults in my life were revealed to me. Instead of destroying my relationship with god (like many adults had told me it would) it strengthened it and actually gave me the courage to express my beliefs and spread the good word. Keep up the work of God, free the weed we shall prevail."

|Dangers of Cannabis
The DEA's Administrative Law Judge, Francis Young concluded: "In strict medical terms marijuana is far safer than many foods we commonly consume. For example, eating 10 raw potatoes can result in a toxic response. By comparison, it is physically impossible to eat enough marijuana to induce death. Marijuana in its natural form is one of the safest therapeutically active substances known to man. By any measure of rational analysis marijuana can be safely used within the supervised routine of medical care.:

| "For SOOO long I have been sure that only me and a small group of my friends had any idea about one of God's greatest gifts. I spend so much time talking with christian friends who just don't get it. The reasons they have are that it's "just wrong". And they REALLY BELIEVE that! We NEED to start breaking down these notions that pot=sin, and i can honestly say that this site is one of the BEST steps i've seen in that direction. God bless your ministry, your mission and your work. I'll be sure to be visiting often.

| "The question to smoke pot or not to is a personal one. One between the Lord and each individual.
Regardless of what each person believes in this regard, there is certainly no room for a Christian to judge another Christian on such a thing. Most of us know this, if not all of us.
But what should we do if we choose to smoke pot?
What I'm talking about is summed up in a situation whereby a friend of mine who had not long become a Christian did regarding the smoking of cigarettes.
I was talking to him one day, expressing to him that although as far as Jesus' words on defilement were concerned the people judging him were the ones that are defiled, not him. Because out of them come judgments, which make them in turn stand for judgment. However, as most of us know, Jesus told us my freind was not defiling himself by what he puts into his body.
He was so inspired that day, because a brother (me) had taken his side in a small country town, that didn't himslelf (me again) smoke tobacco. He was so inspired that he infact stood at the front steps to the church greeting everyone as he puffed away on his smoke. It's obvious he didn't make any new friends that day.
What I'm getting at is that we must be careful to use our freedom as the appostle Paul said "to do good, not evil". The same appostle said in relation to meat sacrificed to idols, that he would eat meat never again if it stumbled a person of weaker faith.
I don't think we need never smoke pot again, or cigarettes, to protect those with a weaker faith, but it might be prudent to keep things in their place. Not so much hiding it completely perhaps, but to be careful that we don't insult or upset our brothers or sisters that don't yet understand.
Jesus said that the truth would set us free. So it stands to reason, that lies are what keeps us in bondage to beliefs that injure us. If anything, we ought to feel pity for those brothers and sisters that can't believe in a God that loves us beyond what food we eat, or clothes we wear, or what pot we smoke. They have been taught a lie, and have accordingly been trapped from knowing the fullness of the love of God, the finality of the cross, the end of the law for righteousness, to those that believe in Jesus.
It's hard to be patient with church goers that petition for tougher drug penalties. I know. My first ever visit to a Christian churh ended in a screaming match between the Pastor and I in the foyer of a rather large church. Beause I had gone to hear about God, and he had passed out a pre-typed letter, calling for harsher marijuana penalties.
Although he was wrong in what he did, I too was wrong in my approach.
Of Jesus they said in prophecy of his coming "a bruised reed he shall not break, and a smouldering flax he won't extinguish". And so we should be also, we should go careful and tread lightly on this subject, sympathetically understanding their ignorance is injuring them, far more than us.

The commandments, Do not commit adultery," "Do not murder," "Do not steal," "Do not covet," and whatever other commandment there may be, are summed up in this one rule: "Love your neighbor as yourself."
Love does no harm to its neighbor. Therefore love is the fulfillment of the law.
And do this, understanding the present time. The hour has come for you to wake up from your slumber, because our salvation is nearer now than when we first believed.
-Paul, Romans 13:9-11
