letter to the editor
Marijuana is an un-Christian pleasure, therefore illegal. No matter how it helps a medical condition, the illicit pleasure it gives is not permitted. God is in control.
If you are sick and there is treatment that is not illicit and you can afford it, use it; that is what God intended.
However, no one is permitted to do anything illegal just because it makes them feel better or live longer.
Stealing food when you're starving to death is illegal.
So if you're dying and marijuana would help, go to church instead. Find your Mother Teresa for comfort and die.
Or do drugs, go to jail without comfort or marijuana, and die. This is a Christian nation. It's God's rules. Quit complaining.
