Hi Letty.

I don't see anything wrong with it. For a time I was caught up in the legality of it, however, my observations of very many who use it (I do not) has been that in some instances it definitely helps. As for it's negative effects, over-use/indulgence has also been observed, which can be problematic with any drug. If it helps, really,(and that's an individual thing), then OK. I believe alcohol is much more destructive, yet it is legal. I've seen too many lives destroyed, very negatively impacted, peoples health ruined, and too many deaths.It's use isn't the problem so much as uncontrolled use or overuse.

Even if you get a card, which obviously is legal, you can limit its use to what truly helps.

The Bible doesn't mention marijuana. It frequently condemns wine and strong drink - not because they are inherently evil, but because of the dangers of drunkenness.

Despite this, Jesus' very first recorded miracle was turning water into wine. 1 Timothy 5:23 recommends wine for an upset stomach. Proverbs 31:6 recommends wine for those with heavy hearts, and strong drink to those near death.

Marijuana is like any other drug, with good and bad effects. THC has been shown less dangerous than opioids - there has been one overdose death so far, compared to thousands from opioids. The best people to decide whether any drug is for you are you and your doctor, based on your particular circumstances.

What does your doctor say?

That would be more helpful, don't you think?

There do seem to be some medical conditions for which THC is the treatment of choice. Glaucoma is among these.

Glory to Jesus Christ!

Most Christians will take prescribed medication. If you believe it is okay to take prescribed medication, then I would think it would be all right if marijuana were prescribed for you.

If there is some kind of medication that would work better than that, I would choose that instead of something THC-based.
