Where did Pat Robertson get that idea I wonder? It could be, some close friend or family member is using marijuana and so he is trying to justify it or it could be something he said is being taken out of context. If he is saying marijuana use is God's will, I'd want him to give me chapter and verse in the Bible that where is states that.

Pat.pat:

One of the big problems with textual communications (email, blogs, text messages, etc.) is that you can't hear vocal intonations or see facial expressions. This makes it much harder to detect when someone is being sarcastic or making a joke, than when you are talking to them in person. Sometimes it can be obvious, but all too often, it's not.

Pat Robinson is not promoting marijuana use, he is simply making a common sense statement that since we spend billions of dollars each year fighting something that grows naturally in the woods, and since we are never going to stop it, those billions of tax payer dollars could be better spent elsewhere. Whether or not it is a sin is not what he is talking about (although Mark 7:15 and 7:18 would lead one to believe it is not a sin).

Axe: Your argument is circular. Perhaps a chew stick might pacify you. :)

Let's get back on track with Gordon's original question: "Is it GOD's will that marijuana be legalized?" I don't really think God cares so much about our laws, but He is very much concerned about the condition of our hearts/souls from which we make laws.
---Leon on 3/17/12

No Leon, you're not getting it. We fully understand you're point that second hand smoke causes a contact high. We totally get that. Now get this. A contact high from second-hand marijuana smoke is far less dangerous than the effects of second hand tobacco smoke. It's proven. So if smoking marijuana should be illegal, so should smoking cigarrettes.
---Jed on 3/16/12


Leon:

By your definition, then, most non-smokers have "used tobacco" too.

In any case, whether I was unwillingly exposed to marijuana smoke by others has no relevance whatsoever with respect to whether I would have an agenda towards legalizing it. In fact, if anything, it would be more likely to bias me AGAINST it, if anything.

But you agree that unwilling third-hand exposure to both marijuna and tobacco are bad - so again, why should one be illegal while the other is not, especially since second-hand tobacco smoke does MUCH more damage?
---StrongAxe on 3/16/12


"(...I have never used drugs recreationally, nor do I intend to...
---StrongAxe on 3/15/12"


Axe: If (as you now say) you've experienced a contact high you have used recreational drugs even though you didn't intend to do so. The same holds true for being around people smoking cigarettes. You (your lungs) were unintentionally smoking too & put at risk, just like the primary smoker(s), of getting cancer. Neither is really an OK thing to do. But don't you think people who don't want to do it should have a choice to not partake? As well, persons who want to engage in these activities should have the choice to do so as long as it doesn't affect the health of others. That's my point!
---Leon on 3/16/12


Leon:

I have on at least one occasion long ago experienced a "contact high" from people smoking marijuana near me, and had to leave the area to escape it. I have also, on many occasions, experienced second hand tobacco smoke, and left the area to escape it.

Both are bad for you. So, please tell me why one is OK and the other isn't? I'm trying to understand what criteria you are using, but so far, I haven't been able to tell from what you have written.

As far as "setting the rules", I am just asking you to jusify something you said, a very standard practice. If you make an accusation (e.g. "I am off the rails"), you should be able to justify it with facts, rather than mere opinions.
---StrongAxe on 3/16/12

Axe: It seems you didn't read what I said. Are you setting the rules as to how I "must" respond to you? You really need to get a grip & listen to yourself. :)

Obviously, you can't credibly talk about what you don't know about since you haven't experienced it. So, please give it a rest.

CONTACT HIGH Jed!!! You & Axe don't seem able to grasp the danger.

If everyone who "legally" consumed marijuana did so in cookies, etc., I think that would be OK! But, you know that's not the case wherein a great many lawless folk would be smoking it in the general populace (amongst non-marijuana users). The danger IS on par with people being seriously affected by the second hand tobacco smoke of others.
---Leon on 3/16/12


If Pat Robertson smokes marijuana then he isn't saved. I didn't hear when he started. Too bad.
---Pat.pat on 3/16/12


Darlene1, I do agree that we are to take care of ourselves and that christians in general have gotten to relaxed about keeping our bodies pure. And I also agree about the overuse of legalized drugs. But if you consider marijuana to be a crime or sin because it is bad for our bodies and alters our personality, then sugar, among many other foods, should also be a sin. Potato chips and soda pop should be a sin.

Leon, marijuana smoke is actually far less hazardous than tobacco smoke. Also, marijuana doesn't have to be smoked to be consumed, so it doesn't have to even have any affect on anyone but the user.
---Jed on 3/15/12


Leon:

How am I off the rails? All I ask is for you to justify your strongly-held opinion that marijuana should not be legalized. Such justification should be either based on scripture, or on common-sense arguments that apply to marijuana but not alcohol/tobacco.

You made your point about alcohol (i.e. second hand smoke), but this does NOT make it different from tobacco. If the use of marijuana were legallized (say, for medical purposes) why should marijuana be illegal to smoke in public, while tobacco is legal?

(I have no agenda here - I have never used drugs recreationally, nor do I intend to. I just want people to know their reasoning is logical and consistent, not based on hysterical preconceptions and misconceptions).

Jed just a thought,since the Bible says we are the Temple of God,our bodies,just as man built the previous Temples and they had to be without any defilement or blemish,we too must keep ourselves pure and clean. When we take in drugs that alter our personality or hurt our bodies,and affect our brains we are not the clean vessel God wants for his Temple. I wonder if we as Christians have gotten too comfortable with God to the point we don't do as much as we should to be pure and holy. If we need medicine which does that we can't help it but when we use substances which do that for the purpose of altering mind and body,feelings,then we are forgetting how we appear to God. We also can't fight Satan as well,because we aren't as aware. God Bless
---Darlene_1 on 3/15/12


Darlene1, I understand there is no comparison between smoking marijuana and mass murder. It just sounded by your first post that we are supposed to go agaist our conscience or what we believe to obey the government. Thank you for clarifying. All I'm saying is that smoking marijuana in and of itself is not wrong. Man made it a crime, not God.
---Jed on 3/15/12


Jed Bless your heart if you can't understand I am saying God is first and foremost in my life and nothing comes before his Word and never will for me,I am very sorry. The things I have said do not negate one another because any normal,leader doesn't require the people of his Country to murder. Although we are to follow the Laws of the Land,yes all of them,unless they transgress the Laws of God. As Christians our first loyalty is to God not man. There is no comparison between smoking marijuana and mass murder. Any Christian with any Spiritual Commonsense knows that. There's games people play without knowing they do and the one you are playing is"gotcha". Render unto Caesar what is Caesar's and unto God what is God's. God Bless
---Darlene_1 on 3/15/12


Jed I also said in that post we are bound as Christians to live by God's Word. God's Word also tells us Thou shalt not kill. In America our Laws say you can't kill. We don't blindly do anything which is against God's Word and would hurt our fellowman and send us to hell if we did.
---Darlene_1 on 3/15/12

That's completely oposite of what you just said in your other post. You said that God requires us to obey the laws of the land, regardless of whether we believe they are right or wrong. So if American law was to kill innocent humans beings then that's what we should do? Oh wait, the killing of innocent human beings is already allowed by federal law.

Relax Axe! :) I'm not saying God's natural laws makes "consuming" marijuana illegal. Repeat: Comparing alcohol to marijuana is like comparing apples to oranges. People can't get a contact high from persons who drink alcohol. If smoking marijuana has medicinal benefits to people suffering from severe, life-threatening aliments, IT SHOULD BE RX LEGALIZED only to be used in a controlled environment, i.e., hospital, hospice, clinic, in the confines of ones home. But, it should never be legal to smoke it in the general population.

---Jed on 3/14/12


Leon, you seem to have a problem comprehending things you read, so let me break it down for you like a little kid. I know full well that God's laws over rule any man-made laws. What I'm saying is that most people fail to recognize that, and just take it for granted that something is wrong if the goverment says it is. Marijuana is one of those things. God made it and allows it to grow. It has no negative impact on society, other than the punishment enforced by government. Yet many people think it's wrong simply because the government says it is.
---Jed on 3/14/12


Leon:

You said: Your diatribe is wacky Jed. God's natural laws override all man-made laws.

Please point out just which of God's natural laws makes marijuana illegal. Or, if you want to say "it's bad for you", show how it's worse than alcoholic beverages, which ARE mentioned in the Bible, sometimes in bad ways, but sometimes also in good ways?

Jed no,don't be ridculous,first and foremost I am a Christian and I know the Jews place in God's heart,so to speak,and my service,loyalty and obedience to God out weighs when any person wants me to sin. I respect my husband and his judgement but I would not agree with him if what he wanted me to do is against my Christian values based on the Bible. I would never advocate murder. The civil Laws are to take care of the people,not harm them. Surely commited Christians know the difference. No leader has a right to murder part of the population. Everything we do must be to promote God's Kingdom,Jesus said to be holy as he is holy.

Being drunk does not encourage a "sound mind" either. Alcohol is a MUCH bigger problem than marijuana. Marijuana has some medical benefits, while tobacco has none.
---StrongAxe on 3/13/12

The verse is this:

Eph 5:18 "And do not get drunk with wine, for that is dissipation, but be filled with the Spirit"

The issue is not about wine or Mary Jane but about being DRUNK.

God does not want us drunk. When we are drunk, we are controlled or "given over" to something other than Him. That's why the rest of the verse exists, to tell us what to be controlled by, the Holy Spirit. We are to be filled with the Spirit and not controlled by wine or by any substance or addiction (including food).

I didn't say you have the right to blithely disobey it, but you don't have to agree with it either. Electing representatives who change the law of the land *IS* the law of the land - it is a outlined in the Constitution.

Rhonda:

Being drunk does not encourage a "sound mind" either. Alcohol is a MUCH bigger problem than marijuana. Marijuana has some medical benefits, while tobacco has none.

So why are alcohol and tobacco legal while marijuana is not? Any legitmate argument used to make marijuana illegal should ALSO make tobacco and alcohol illegal. Anything different is pure hypocrisy.

And think of the practical matters. Anyone who wants to smoke marijuana now can do so. The laws against it aren't really deterrents. But they DO have several bad effects:
1) All sources are illegal, promoting organized crime (like Prohibition did)
2) This drives the prices up
3) No FDA quality control
4) No tax revenues

Oh, so you could grow marijuana . . . and not pay for booze. So, I wonder if the booze industry is involved in trying to keep marijuana from becoming legal.

Who created tobacco? ... Marijuana and even heroin have medical benefits in some situations...
******

playing the "devils advocate" serves?

tobacco products today contain over 100 POISONOUS substances ...making it legal just helps kill more people in a slow agonizing death and create more health problems

interesting how many CLAIM christianity yet look to world for answers ...choosing to smoke because it's legal does not make DECISION to smoke less harmful to ones body and the people around them

legalizing marijuana would open it up to many who may otherwise not use it ...being high is NOT giving one a SOUND MIND ...so whose will would it be to leave people without a sound mind?

Substances like hemp (i.e. marijuana) and cocaine were once legal in the United States, and socially acceptable. Hemp had great commercial utility - it has good fiber conent and is useful in manufacturing paper, cloth and rope, for example. Both Washington and Jefferson raised hemp for this reason. However, it was made illegal because some people also got high from it.

One basic, medical, I understand, is that marijuana has various chemicals that have unknown and unpredictable effects, so the USDA can't effectively know what it will do, as much as can be done with single-chemical drugs.

You can get high by means of controlled strangulation, cutting off oxygen from your brain. And I have been informed that this can be sort of how alcohol and its companion substances in booze can effect people - - messing with brain function, not by helping.

I read that pin worms can recondition the colon so people don't suffer from Crohn's disease. And tapeworm heads were used in weight reduction pills, surprisingly effectively. If this is true, these might help much more than marijuana.

Marijuana is one of those things that people have been taught is wrong just because it is illegal. If there was no law against it nobody would think anything about it being wrong. Many of the things that we think are wrong have just been made wrong by man's laws, not God or even our own conscience. If the government were to ban light bulbs (wich they are actually trying to do), over time people would automatically think that light bulbs are wrong simply because they are illegal. And eventually owning a light bulb would be considered a sin because people have been told not to do it for so long.

"Is it GOD's Will that marijuana be legalized?" It was the Father's will for it to grow. Gen 1:11,12 He created the seed baring plant. Gen 1:29 It was man, for reasons that are beyond me, who decided to make it illegal.
---josef on 3/11/12


Rhonda:

Who created tobacco? Who created marijuana plants? God must have had some good reason to put them here. Marijuana and even heroin have medical benefits in some situations (unlike tobacco, which is legal).

They are not illegal because the have no medical benefits (Rat poison doesn't either, and you can buy it anywhere). We inherited Victorian baggage that says "anything too much fun must necessarily be bad for you", so such substances are totally prohibited, regardless of the their legitimate uses.

The government already has procedures for restricting other drugs and only issuing them to patients who legitimately need them. Why should substances like marijuana be treated differently?

Comparing alcohol to marijuana is like comparing apples to oranges. People can't get a contact high from persons who drink alcohol. I agree with Shirley. If smoking marijuana has medicinal benefits to people suffering from severe, life-threatening aliments, it should be legalized only to be administered by health professionals in a controlled environment, i.e., hospital, hospice, clinic. But, it should never be legal for consumption in public by the general populace.
---Leon on 3/10/12


Darlene_1:

We have a chicken and egg problem here. Laws govern the people. But people elect representatives, and representatives make laws.

Slavery was once legal too. Saying "you shouldn't oppose slavery because it's the law of the land" would have been a ridiculous argument, because the people have the right, and in fact the DUTY to change laws that are legal but unjust.

This country has a hysterical (i.e. illogical) attitude towards drugs. Marijuana is illegal (even in places where it would be medically useful), whereas alcohol and tobacco are perfectly legal, even though both have much more severe impacts on the ecoomy than marijuana does.

I think marijuana is illegal because using it leads to inappropriate and uncontrollable laughter, and impaired mental faculties, but then drinking alcohol can also cause the same type of effects. God's will to legalize marijuana? I think more research should be done as to the pros/benefits and cons/detriments of legalizing its use before considering its legalization and/or age restricted regulation.

If Pat Robertson showed up at my door saying, "For God so loved the world that He gave His only-begotten Son...." I wouldn't believe him had I not already read it for myself.

However, many real conservative thinkers, such as the late William Buckley, feel that marijuana and others should be legal. (I'm not saying I agree with them.)

I know someone who suffers badly from FMS. His PCP and rheumatologist wish they could get marinol (the pill form of THC) for him, but they can't.

Pat Robertson (and most televangelists) stopped making since years ago. Time for Christians to get in their Bibles to hear what the Word of God says.
---KarenD on 3/9/12


Robertson's argument that marijuana should be legalized is based on the fact, that like alcohol, we cannot prevent its use and that penalties are far too severe for its possession, that conviction all too often creates a more determined criminal.

And he is right that prisons are all too often the place where inmates become more educated in crime.

I've heard that Marijuana is a Safer drug than Alcohol. I don't know. I have never tried either drug.

But I do know that GOD has given us the ability to Choose between what is Good and what is Bad.

Just like Adam & Eve had to do. They had to choose to obey GOD or obey the Devil. Consequences for their Bad Choice. No need to explain. It's all in the Bible.

I'm not sure if GOD really cares about Marijuana being legalized.

Instead, I believe that GOD wants us to Choose what is Best for us and helping improve our ability to serve HIM better.

I believe that that would involve NOT using Marijuana. But like Trish mentioned, there are some Medical uses for the drug.

God does not want us to do anything in excess. I am a christian and if a person does not indulge in drugs before they are legalized they are more then likely not to indulge once it is legal. As a previous Marijuana user myself I know that people do not belong in jail because of it. As a mother of 2 children with Chron's disease I believe that they would benefit from it. To much money is being spent to fight it. You are not going to stop it we found that out in prohibition. All they do is make bad people rich.

Is it God's will that alcohol be legal? Do we really know the mind of God on every single matter?

There has been plenty of scientific support for the use of medical marijuana.

Plus, if the drug is legal, there it could be made without harmful additives, or poisons, like some of the illegal stuff that is sold on the streets. Plus, it would take the burden off the legal system, and the prisons. They could be used for the hardcore criminals, like rapists and murderers.

Sadly, at his age, Pat Robertson may be suffering from some kind of dementia that's affecting his cognitive reasoning ability. His son/family should lovingly take the keys away from Pat & end his driving days on the 700 Club.

Legalize wacky weed? No! God doesn't want our minds to be befuddled. He wants our minds to be sound (healthy). Besides, imagine all the chaos that would ensue if marijuana was legalized wherein people could socially engage in its use in public? People (men, women & CHILDREN) would be getting contact highs just from being in areas where MJ was being used...people driving, working, etc., under the influence... Lord deliver us from such calamity!

Gordon,

Is it god's will that any drug be illegal?

What are you smoking?

I am beginning to wonder if his age has started to affect his judgement. Any habit forming illegal drug is not approved by God since we are told to obey the Laws of the Land,therefore,that is no message from the Lord he is promoting. To legalize something which can take over a persons mind,body,and life,which does the same thing alcohol does as a depressant to the system,is very wrong and not in God's will. If it works as a pain reliever I could understand letting the sick use it but not to the general public.
