I agree with "State Should Adopt Legal Limit for Pot," (Oct. 7) 
legalizing cannabis (kaneh bosm / marijuana). This is a chance for 
citizens who use or don't use cannabis to help change an ignorant 
anti-Christian law.

It is a chance for parents and mothers to help protect children from 
the laws of prohibition and its harms. A chance to guide police 
toward serving and protecting, rather than maintaining a misguided 
prohibition. It's a chance for true fiscal conservatives to stop 
government from unsuccessfully spending additional money to control 
what people put in their bodies. It is a chance for DARE graduate 
students who've been lied to to speak out.

It's a chance for Christians to acknowledge what it means when Christ 
God Our Father, indicates 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).

It's time to stop caging and persecuting people for using what God 
says is good.
