Letters: Devil law enacted

More opinions on the effectiveness of prohibition of marijuana

e RCMP’s Drugs and Organized Crime Awareness Service is mistaken (“Don’t let evil triumph, Jan. 18, 2012) to believe the best reason a citizens can come up with to end cannabis (marijuana) prohibition is because the plant has not directly killed anyone.

The “best measuring stick to apply” when considering ending cannabis prohibition is the Biblical one since God (the Ecologician) indicates He created all the seed-bearing plants, saying they are all good, on literally the very first page (see Genesis 1:11-12 and 29-30). The only Biblical restriction placed on cannabis is to accept it with thankfulness (1 Timothy 4:1-5).

Caging responsible adult humans for using what God says is good, is what’s “evil.” And the prohibition of this beneficial plant “triumphed” because “good men and women (did) nothing” when the devil law was enacted. Truthfully,
