Another reason to stop caging sick citizens who use cannabis 
(marijuana) that didn't get mentioned in Tony Ryan's essay in the 
April 19 Argus Leader regarding legalizing medical marijuana is 
because it's biblically correct since God indicates on literally the 
first page of the Bible (Genesis 1:11-12 and 29-30) that he created 
all the seed-bearing plants, saying they are all good. The only 
biblical restriction placed on cannabis is that it is to be accepted 
with thankfulness (see I Timothy 4:1-5). "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?" (I John 3:17).

Jesus Christ risked jail to heal the sick.
