I wonder if maybe what it really comes down to is the motivations, the thoughts and or the intents of the heart? Isn't that where sin starts, in the heart and mind? Not that I think anyone is sinning if they do drugs or alcohol as I really don't care cause it's none of my business. However, I Am very interested in how I process external or even internal information in my heart and mind.

Jesus has a way of narrowing things down.
Matthew 11:18-For John came neither eating nor drinking, and they say , He hath a devil.
19-The Son of man came eating and drinking, and they say, Behold a man gluttonous, and a winebibber, a friend of publicans and sinners. But wisdom is justified of her children.

Hi folks,
A friend sent this article to me as published by Hillsdale College in Michigan. I believe it is helpful in coming to understand the full impact of cannabis on the general population of America.
Please read it as time permits and comment if you wish.

Moderators let me know if the article is approved, thank you.

The miracle of Jesus taking water and turning it into the most dangerous and harmful mind altering drug the world has ever known, teaches me (among many other deep spiritual things) that there is a time and place for consuming the lesser harmful mind altering drugs.

Bob I didn’t read the whole article but I’ve watched several hours of documentaries that address the claims of schizophrenia being caused by marijuana.. it seems to be more complicated than this article leads on... but assuming it were true, how would you think marijuana compares to alcohol in its role in violent crimes, rapes, spousal abuse, child abuse, mental illness, accidental deaths, overdoses, etc? Or how would marijuana compare to alcohol in its reported ability to improve the quality of life in people suffering from depression, ptsd, anxiety, etc?

Has anyone ever heard of alcohol improving the quality of life in people who are suffering?

The moderate use of wine and other alcoholic drinks are blessed by God and the Scriptures.  It is the misuse of alcohol that is condemned.

Which is why the use of marijuana and other illicit drugs is a sin because the users take these drugs to become intoxicated out of their minds.  They feel guilty for their sins so they vainly attempt to justify their actions to others, without success.

Interesting choice of words. “Intoxicated out of their minds”.... “guilty for their sins”...


I take cannabis to go deeper into my mind.. not out of it.

And yes, it does sometimes make me feel guilty for my sins.. and it also leads me to repentance for those sins, none of which are the act of consuming cannabis, as scripture tells us that it’s not what you put in your body that is sin but what comes out of your heart.

Cannabis acts to me as a tool that awakens the judge within. The judge acts like a mirror revealing  ‘me’ (my motives, my beliefs, my intentions, my doubts and insecurities) to ‘myself’.. which will at times lead me to confirmation, revelation or to repentance of sins that lay deep in the subconscious.

Scripture says that repentance is a gift from God. Scripture also says that we should judge and examine ourselves now so that we are not judged later. In this regard, cannabis for me is like a spiritual microscope helping me to examine myself.. are you prepared to call this evil?

Hi Folks,

We need to understand that our freedom has attached responsibilities in regard to others who observe our freedoms and try to handle them carelessly.

Bob

1 Corinthians 8:9
Be careful, however, that your freedom does not become a stumbling block to the weak.


 Gal 5:13 For you, brothers, were called to freedom; but do not use your freedom as an opportunity for the flesh. Rather, serve one another in love. 14 The entire law is fulfilled in a single decree: “Love your neighbor as yourself.”…

Bob the author of the article you linked to was on The Joe Rogan podcast yesterday to discuss/debate his book with a Dr. on the topic.

You get a bigger and more accurate picture of the dangers and misconceptions of marijuana when you get two people from opposing view points to have a 2 and a half hour discussion where they cite scientific and medical studies more than you’d get from reading only an article written by one side.

ML you started this thread asking about the dangers of marijuana. You could listen to the podcast and get a lot of information enough to intelligently form your own opinion. It’s better than reading a couple of anonymous people argue on a discussion board.
