Nearly every problem associated with the relatively safe plant 
cannabis (kaneh bosm, marijuana) is actually a consequence of 
cannabis prohibition, persecution and extermination ("This Bud's For 
Who?" Nov. 24). Responsible citizens should be allowed to use 
cannabis recreationally and medically with out being confronted by government.

Another reason to re-legalize cannabis that doesn't get mentioned is 
because it is Biblically correct since God, The Ecologician, 
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 to accept 
it with thankfulness (1 Timothy 4:1-5).

And medically, "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?" (1 John 3:17). Further, many people know 
cannabis is the tree of life, and the very last page of the Bible 
indicates the leaves of the tree of life are for the healing of the 
nations (see Revelation 22).

Exactly what kind of government cages its citizens for using what God 
says is good?
