Re "Smoke and spin" by Nick Miller (SN&R Beats, October

Balking on the cannabis (marijuana) issue could cost Democrats dearly
if Republicans get smart and seize the cannabis issue. Cannabis
prohibition and extermination isn't consistent with Republican ideals,
such as states' rights, smaller federal government, free trade,
capitalism, constitutional rights, etc. Millions of Democrats will
jump ship and vote for Republicans if they do the right thing and
support ending one of the most embarrassing segments of American history.

Another reason for Republicans to support relegalizing the relatively
safe, God-given plant cannabis that doesn't get mentioned is because
it is biblically correct since 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). The only Biblical restriction placed on cannabis is that it be
accepted with thankfulness (see 1 Timothy 4:1-5).
