One of the Biblical signs of the "End Times" is that people will turn to "witchcraft." The correct translation from the word in the Greek, Pharmakeia, is "pharmacy", or drugs. Legalizing bad conduct does not improve society. Either choice leads down a dark road because people are getting more drug dependent. . Marijuana is a gateway drug that emboldens many to go to more potent garbage. America is on the downward slope and has all but lost its way. I am thankful that we are promised one who will restore all things (Malachi 4: 5-6) just prior to the establishment of Godly sanity.

It would be nice if people didn't need or want all these alternative substances but that is not reality. And quite frankly, marijuana is more safe than tobacco, alcohol, cough syrup, antidepressants, etc.

Don't believe me? People die every year directly related to the above drugs. Nobody dies from marijuana, literally, nobody.

While you are busy thumping your bible - remember the bible does not have any restrictions on what mankind wants to grow, eat, drink, or smoke as long as none of the 10 commandments are broken

And what do these pharmacies dispense?Synthetic,chemical concoctions,rather than than the remedies provided by God and nature. That is the 'witchcraft' that has been ongoing for years,thinking that man can do better than God is leading to our destruction. And you might want to check some of your 'facts', as marijuana being a 'gateway drug' was thoroughly debunked long ago.

You forget that alcohol is also considered a drug.

Shortly before the House of Representatives approved a federal ban on marijuana in 1937, the Republican minority leader, Bertrand Snell of New York, confessed, "I do not know anything about the bill." The Democratic majority leader, Sam Rayburn of Texas, educated him. "It has something to do with something that is called marihuana," Rayburn said. "I believe it is a narcotic of some kind."

Seventy-five years, millions of arrests and billions of dollars later, we are still living with the consequences of that ignorant, ill-considered decision, which nationalized a policy that punishes peaceful people and squanders taxpayer money in a blind vendetta...
