Hey, Buddy–Got a light?

MedicalMarijuanaWe are told that 52 percent of Californians polled say marijuana should be made legal, while 45 percent disagree.

Pot opponents point to the medical risks, increased crime and urban blight. Proponents see the costs of enforcement and our overloaded courts and say the answer is to tax the legal sale of marijuana (and other popular drugs?) and look the other way!

Drawing from documented sources, Randy Thomasson, president of SaveCalifornia.com, says “Today’s marijuana is much more mind-altering than decades ago. Smoking pot regularly causes brain abnormalities in teens and young adults, and harms people’s lungs faster than smoking cigarettes.” His short-video and documented facts are at MarijuanaHarmsFamilies.com.

The Bible teaches believers to “be self-controlled” (1 Peter 5:8). Our bodies are the temple of the Holy Spirit (1 Corinthians 3:16) and are to be used for God’s glory and our good (1 Corinthians 6:19-20).

But, the world has always loved darkness rather than light (John 3:19)!
