I have some answers for Kirk Muse's thoughtful question, "Why The
Harsh Punishment For Growing Marijuana?" (Aug. 18, 2006).

Caging humans for using cannabis (marijuana/kaneh-bosm) is made
possible in part because of failed clergy not speaking up and pointing
out to Christian followers, society in general and politicians that
Christ God Our Father indicated 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).

This failure is Biblically titled the "Sin of the Priests" (see
Malachi 1:6-14 NASB) and is directly responsible for government's
sinful practice of punishing people for growing a God-given plant.

This failure with its harsh punishments enables pharmaceutical
companies to eliminate cannabis from competing with their profitable
medications. It has enabled cotton and polyester manufacturers to
eliminate hemp from competing in the textile industry. It eliminates
hemp oil from competing with big oil companies, which further creates
profit from the perpetual wars that petroleum oil requires. Cannabis
prohibition also eliminates competition to the beer and wine companies
and you will now see them spend large amounts of money to keep
Colorado from passing "Amendment 44" which will allow adults to
legally possess up to an ounce of cannabis, if it wins in the November
