Re "Be wary of marijuana talk" (Speak Out, Feb. 8):

That all the seed-bearing plants are good is so clear that there is
little room for "interpretation" to "disagree" with it.

Speak Out letter writer Judy Lovejoy Elliott's disagreement isn't with
me but rather God. That it is told on literally the very first page of
the Bible is no accident.

Who is twisting words? It seems Elliott is using Scripture to support
caging humans for using a God-given plant - a plant that hasn't
"kill"(ed) anyone in more than 5,000 documented years of usage. That's
safety on a biblical scale.

Since Christ Jesus requests that we love one another and you can't
love someone and cage them for using what God says is good, supporting
cannabis prohibition separates people from the "spirit of truth" as
told in John 14-16. Cannabis prohibition is the devil law.
