Yes ... and the face of lung cancer, and the face of alcholics and the face of pot smokers

And I have tried to listen to the voice of lung cancer, and the voice of a alcholic, and the voice of pot smokers......

If you think that's cutie tootie ... we probably don't have common friends

it's a good thing overeating is not considered a serious sin because if it was...oh! probably 3/4's of ministry time at least would have to be given to this matter.

A lot of people don't even smoke marijuana, and they don't have to deal with the smoke hurting their lungs. They ingest it in their food. Ganja butter can be put on bread or crackers. Getting mega-stoned is absolutely not a good thing and can cause panic and other assorted ailments, but for those who don't abuse it and who use it in small amounts, it can be a way to function normally throughout the day.

There are millions of people around the globe (many sitting in the pews) who use pharmaceuticals to get "high" and to keep their levels of anxiety down. Nobody seems to care about that, even though many anti-depressants are known to cause homicidal/suicidal thoughts and strange or aggressive behavior. Has anybody ever seen the ridiculous warnings on some of these psych meds? The pharm companies are rolling in the dough. Rolling. They are drug dealers as well, if you think about it. They are extremely good at what they do.

(I don't know why you keep bringing up hippies)

Here is an interesting link on how anti-depressants (and other assorted meds) may be affecting the levels of violence around the world: http://www.ssristories.com/index.php

A sin? No. Not in your best interest? Yes.

I wouldn't doubt that at all.

To each their own. Your own, my own, all of us.

We have been granted this life to live in a way which we see fit for ourselves.

I'm not really for legalizing marijuana or anything, but I'm not entirely sure it is necessarily a sin. For me marijuana would be a sin because I have a respiratory condition and take anti-anxiety meds it might not react well with.

However if my lungs were good and my brain chemistry normal controlled use of marijuana, so long as it did not keep me from duties to God or my neighbor, I think could quite plausibly not be a sin. I'm just skeptical that there are many who would use marijuana or psychedelics in small doses in a controlled setting or that they would avoid doing it to excess. And I don't see how the law could say something like "April is marijuana season, if you get your permits in you can take marijuana in April but in any other month you will be fined." Still in many indigenous societies they would limit certain drugs to festivals or a specific season and I sometimes think that avoided some of the problems we have with them.
