Dear Editor: Regarding Loretta Nall's request ('Make medical marijuana
legal,' letters, Nov. 21): Colorado legalized medical cannabis (kaneh
bosm/marijuana) use and it has worked properly, protecting sick citizens
from confrontation with government.

One reason to permit sick humans to use the relatively safe God-given
plant cannabis that doesn't get mentioned is because it's Biblically
correct since Christ God Our Father, the Ecologician indicates he
created all the seed-bearing plants, saying they are all good, on
literally the very first page.

Further, the only biblical restriction placed on cannabis is that it
is to be accepted with thankfulness (see 1 Timothy 4:1-5). And 'But
whoever has the world's goods, and sees his brother in need and closes
his heart against him, how does the love of God abide in him?' (See 1
John 3:17). Jesus Christ risked jail to heal the sick.
