Cannabis (marijuana) has gone through more than enough scientific 
processes, including globally, to be approved as medicine. What 
"doesn't make any sense" ("White House drug policy adviser questions 
Montana's medical marijuana law," Sept. 25) is how blatantly the U.S. 
government uses lies, half-truths and propaganda to prohibit sick 
citizens from having access to the relatively safe, God-given plant.

It would be biblically correct for the federal government to allow 
sick citizens to use cannabis since God indicates He created all the 
seed-bearing, plants saying they are all good, on literally the very 
first page (see Genesis 1:11-12 and 29-30). The only biblical 
restriction placed on cannabis is that it 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).
